Visit the Royal British Columbia Museum’s new feature exhibition, dive deep into the stories and science that surround magnificent killer whales, or orcas, spirits of BC’s wild coast and apex predators of the ocean.
Follow the currents of ecological activism, popular culture and Indigenous beliefs to gain a new appreciation of these sophisticated animals, long feared in Western cultures as “killer whales.” Discover the complex social structure of orca society and reflect on the surprising consequences of captivity.
Dive in to learn which killer whale populations are thriving and which are at risk. Resurface with a new understanding of how orcas and humans are inextricably connected: we’re all part of nature, not apart from nature.
A world class exhibition not to be missed!
