Killer in Peril

Decline of the Orca — from ferocious predator to species at risk. Portrayed as a fearsome predator in popular culture, the killer whale suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. In fact, it's not a whale at all, but the largest of the dolphins. It is a highly inquisitive mammal, with the tightest family bonds of any animal on Earth. Sadly, this mighty predator is in grave danger of disappearing. It is among the most highly contaminated marine mammals in the world, a canary in a coal mine for the state of our oceans. Killer in Peril follows North America's top whale researchers on the Pacific coast as they unravel the complexities of killer whale culture and probe the causes of the orca's decline.
