Below you’ll find some great books that can help explain to the kids what the life of an orca whale is really like. 

Are orca whales and killer whales the same thing?

They are but people often hear that name and think that they’re mindless hunters in the water. While they are hunters, they’re looking for food and marine life that they can eat, not out just hunting anything and everything that they come across. 

How do orcas communicate?

In the water, they communicate with clicks and a type of whistle and they also use slaps and other methods of movement when they’re above the water as well.
