Transient killer whale range - Satellite tagging of West Coast transient killer whales to determine range and movement patterns

Metadata Updated: March 26, 2021

Transient killers whales inhabit the West Coast of the United States. Their range and movement patterns are difficult to ascertain, but are vital to understanding killer whale population dynamics and abundance trends. Satellite tagging of West Coast transient killer whales to determine range and movement patterns will provide data to assist in understanding transient killer whale populations. Locational data.
