Nature Live Online: The Social Side of the Killer Whale

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.

Once aired, you can rewatch this talk and any others on our Nature Live playlist on YouTube. 

Suitable for ages 6+

The Museum is closed but our work continues

As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. We're doing everything we can to continue to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
