With changes in ocean ecosystems during recent years, there has been an increased interest in understanding how transient killer whales affect prey both directly and indirectly.
In anticipation of the April and May height of the transient killer whale “season” in Monterey Bay, we invite you to join Josh as he outlines the natural history and ecology of transient killer whales in the eastern North Pacific.
