Orca: Ruler of the Seas
At home and abroad, the Orca is one of Canada’s most treasured and iconic animals, intimately tied to tradition, culture, heritage, and mythology.
Admired for their beauty and respected as talented hunters, they are the largest member of the dolphin family, and can swim up to 55 km/h, which makes it the world’s fastest sea mammal.
Orcas are among the cleverest mammals on earth: they demonstrate the ability to learn new things during their lifetimes and teach these things to the next generation. They are loved for their sociability and playfulness, particularly their spectacular leaps.
