Scientific publications about orca (via a Scholar Google search for “Orcinus orca“). If you haven’t yet used ‘Scholar’ and you love science and facts, this is going to open a whole new world for you. Think of it as the internet for scientists. It will also suggest other searches (such as ‘killer whale’). Many are for free and will be listed as links to the right of the name of the study.
