The Orca (π‘‚π‘Ÿπ‘π‘–π‘›π‘’π‘  π‘œπ‘Ÿπ‘π‘Ž), often known as the Killer Whale, is the world's largest species of dolphin and one of the most powerful marine predators. It is easily identified in the sea due to its black and white coloring and panda-like look. They are distinct because they are intelligent and social with one another. To converse with other pods, they make various noises. They also hunt using echolocation. They do this by making noise that flows in the water and bounce-back to them when it hits objects or fish. They will know what kind of object it is, its shape, and how far away it is from them.


Orcas are highly intelligent marine mammals, and as a result, they are hunted and confined in marine parks for human entertainment, leading to their mortality. Large aquariums, for example, do not meet their natural nature with miles of swimming and excessive depth of diving. Because of this condition, they are frequently bored, upset, and injure themselves, which leads to their deaths.

Let's save and protect these majestic marine animals from captivity! The Earth Island Institute Asia-Pacific unites with the global effort to protect the Orcas and their habitats.
