Also known as the killer whale, the ORCA is found throughout all the world’s oceans, and is believed to be the most widespread mammal species after humans. An intelligent and versatile predator, the orca shows a wide range of different hunting techniques. The orca is a social species, communicating using a variety of screams, clicks and whistles, as well as through physical behaviours such as breaching, slapping the flippers or tail, and ‘spyhopping’ (bringing the head out of the water).

The Killer Whale (Orca) is unlisted by the ICUN, due to insufficient data; however, the "southern resident" population of orcas that lives off the coast of British Columbia and Washington State was listed as an Endangered Species in the U.S. Orcas are threatened by habitat loss, pollution, capture for marine mammal parks, and conflict with human  fisheries.
