Additional Information

Intended for both the biologist and the whale enthusiast, this book presents over 20 years of research findings on the killer whale populations of the northwest coast of North America, particularly Washington state and British Columbia. The registry contains a description of an entire population of wild killer whales. For each whale there is a photograph, a name code, pod membership, maternal lineage, and in many cases the age and sex. No similar catalogue exists for any other species of marine mammal. The narrative included with the registry provides highlights on the life history of killer whales, as well as information on where to find killer whales, how to recognize and photograph individuals, and how to behave around them.

This is an excellent book for anyone who is interested in orca whales. It has mass amounts of great information, it's easy to read, there are great photographs, and the ID catalogue of orcas is nothing but the best. This book is a must have for any whale-lover, researcher, or someone with just a general interest.
I just returned from a kayaking trip in the Johnston Straight just East of North Vancouver Island known as the inside passage. We had first hand views of the Orcas. This book was used as a reference manual to identify some of the whales. It has wonderful reference pictures of the known pods (families) in the area. It goes into great detail on their eating habits, language, and family history. It also explains their social behavior, and the differences between the pods. It is a wonderful book full of pictures, and details.
May I first say I have never encountered a better identification book then Killer Whales and Transients. Both books are written by THE wild orca authority in the Pacific Northwest. Catalouged pictures and organized information of each individual in every pod along the coast from WA to northern BC along with accurate info on feeding, behavioral and other habits of the pods in Puget Sound and British Columbia. Truly a great book, and as I plan on researching these animals in my adulthood, it has been a great boost to my knowledge on them.
