Marine Mammals in Victoria BC

Marine mammals are a diverse group of mammals living mainly in the ocean and depending on the sea for their food. In and around Victoria, British Columbia, Canada on Vancouver Island, one of few temperate locations in the world with such variety, these include cetaceans (whales, orca and dolphins), pinnipeds (seals and sea lions) and otters (northern river and, rarely, sea otters).
