orcaTalk: "Orca Talk

The Northern Resident Orcas are a small population of killer whales living off the west coast of British Columbia. They make three main kinds of vocalizations, whistles, echolocation clicks and stereotyped pulsed calls. The land-based research station with OrcaLab has recorded over 20,000 hours of orca vocalizations, and in collaboration with them, we have digitized these and have made them available on the web on The Orchive. The calls that they make have been classified into different call types by scientists, and in this website, we have games to help you to learn these calls. We have a number of games for you to play, the first is Orca Talk, which teaches you the different calls of these unique individuals.
