HMSC Science on Tap- The Family That Preys Together: Killer Whale Studies in Antarctic Waters

Speaker: Dr. Bob Pitman, Marine Mammal Institute, Dept. Fisheries and Wildlife, OSU

Topic: The Family That Preys Together: Killer Whale Studies in Antarctic Waters

The killer whale is an animal of superlatives. It is an intelligent, intensely social animal, whose designer paint job on a bus-sized body makes it arguably the most eminently recognizable animal that swims in the ocean. Outside of humans, it is the most widely distributed animal on the planet, and weighing in at 5-6 tons, it is the most formidable apex predator anywhere on earth. For this talk, I will first introduce you to the killer whale and its ways, based on decades of research here in the Pacific Northwest. Then we will cut to the Southern Ocean and Antarctica, where I have studied killer whales for the past 20 years, and I will present a different community of killer whales that thrive in a most unlikely habitat.
