Orcas swimming in the ocean


 Join us as we revisit the fascinating and ongoing saga of orcas attacking boats off the Iberian Peninsula. Since May of 2020 orcas have been attacking, damaging and in some cases sinking boats off the Iberian Peninsula between Morocco, Portugal and Spain, and no one knows for certain why. What are their motives? How has this negative human/orca interaction played out? Is it escalating? What will the clashes lead to?
