Photo: Northern Resident Killer Whales Group

A group of Killer Whales from the Northern Resident community off Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada.

This group or pod of Killer Whales finds peace in the waters off Northern Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada where they make appearances yearly. Traveling as a group is a common sight amongst the different pods of Killer Whales as they are very closely knit when it comes to family.Pods are larger groups of killer whales and then they are separated into subpods. The subpods stay together for their entire lives and never seem to venture too far apart. They are always within calling distance of the mother or the matriach of the subpod.These whales are part of a group known as the Northern Resident Killer Whales and farther south there is a group known as the Southern Resident Killer Whales. The two communities never join up and travel together and usually stay within their own boundaries.Another type of Killer Whales are the Transients but there are usually only two or three in a group that stick together. ... continue below the picture...
