OrcaLab Live Chat: Orca Families (8/15)

You may have read the heartbreaking CNN story this weekend of a mother orca unable to let go of her dead calf. It’s a reminder of how close of a bond familial groups are in orca populations. Joining us to expand on orca families are OrcaLab founders Paul Spong and Helena Symonds in a live chat tomorrow (Wednesday August 15th) at 5pm ET / 2pm PT. Ask them your orca questions here, such as how long do orca offspring stay with their mothers? Who leads the pods? We’ll see you then on the OrcaLab Cam!
