False Killer Whales

Just another WordPress site


Pseudorca crassidens, the false killer whale, is an endangered, large, toothed whale that lives in the tropics and sub-tropics of the open ocean.

False killer whales occur throughout the Pacific, namely around Hawaii and New Zealand.

Pseudorca is a top research priority for the Cascadia Research Collective‘s work in Hawaii, which is home to the world’s best-known Pseudorca population.

This site is your window into their world and our ongoing research of this endangered species, and it is your chance to contribute to our work.
