Nature Live Online: The Social Side of the Killer Whale

Got a question?

You can ask questions while the talk is happening. Head to the video on YouTube and type your question into the chat box during the broadcast.

Orcas are incredible predators, which is probably what earned them the rather fierce name of 'killer whale'.

But becoming such excellent ocean hunters requires some complex behaviours. Join Museum researcher Ellen Coombs and find out more about the social side of orcas, from close-knit relationships in family pods to sophisticated hunting behaviour.

The Museum is closed but our work continues

We hope you share our passion for the Museum. We're continuing to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

But the Museum is a charity and we need your help. With our doors closed we're losing vital income, and if you could help us with a donation, no matter the size, we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
