Orcas in Our Bay

Did you know that we have orcas, or killer whales, in our Bay?
A pod of orcas was spotted last weekend outside of King Harbor hunting dolphin. Onlookers believed that a set of parents was teaching a calf to hunt.
Orcas are spotted off our coast very occasionally. This year, blue whales were also seen in large numbers near Redondo Beach.
Check out the orca photos in the Easy Reader.
