>Question: My name is Dan from Hawaii. I was wondering what is the range of >Killer Whales? Is it possible for Killer Whales to come as far South >(or North) as Hawaii? >Mahalo and Aloha, >Dan Reply: Dear Dan, Killer whales (Orcinus orca) are a cosmopolitan species of whale. They can be found in polar regions and in equatorial regions. Their distribution worldwide is dependant upon prey availability, human predation and environmental factors like ice cover. They are most abundant within 300 or so miles of continental coastlines and may be found in all oceans any time of the year. Resident populations can be found in places like Washington State, British Columbia and SE Alaska. So, yes you could see a killer whale in your area!
