Artist Comments: Orca's are the largest members of the dolphin family, and are found in all the world's oceans. Though not an international endangered species, local populations can be threatened or endangered due to loss of prey or habitat, pollution, capture by marine parks and conflict with fisheries. They are highly sophisticated social creatures, and there are many reasons attributed to their habit of "breaching". Like all members of the dolphin family, they have no difficulty in clearing the surface when they surge upward, and then hit the water with a satisfying "smack".
