Orca (Killer Whales) (2003)
Ordinary people do some extraordinary things in an attempt to help Orca killer whales stay off the endangered species list. In this program volunteers assist a biologist off the coast of Washington state in an exceptionally important photo-identification survey of the Ornicus Orca killer whales.
A highly intelligent and charismatic mammal, Orcas are one of the mainstays of the tourist industry in the Pacific Northwest; however, a combination of PCB poisoning, declines in salmon, which are an Orca's favorite prey, oil spills, boat collisions, fishing net entanglement, and disease are causing a serious decline in their numbers and the people in this program are taking steps to prevent that.
