California Killer Whale Project’s mission is to continue the long-term study of the ecology, natural history, and conservation of killer whales off the coast of California.
We have been collecting data on orcas since 1987!
It is our responsibility to continue the study and conservation of orcas and promote awareness about these incredible cetaceans.
Here you will find research catalogues, posters, and more.
