NEWS: True Tales of False Killer Whales

Feb 24, 2015

Did you know B.C.’s unique coast is host to 23% of the world’s entire cetacean populations? Such biodiversity means you never really know what you might see if you are on the water. Any cetacean sighting is an exciting occurrence, but if you’re lucky, you might have the unique experience of spotting something that is very rarely seen. One of the rare species you may spot off B.C.’s shores is the false killer whale, which has a very interesting history in B.C. waters.


Wild Whales is the home of the B.C. Cetacean Sightings Network, a conservation and research program of the Vancouver Aquarium, in partnership with Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). We collect sightings of all cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises) and sea turtles from British Columbia and surrounding waters. Have you seen one? We'd like to know!
