In this track you can hear orcas clicking and calling from a recording made with a tag attached to one of the whales in the group using suction cups. You can also hear the sound of water flowing through the tag as the whale speeds up, giving you a real sense of being underwater with them!

“One of the issues that orca face is that they are such remarkable animals, and because of that people want to see them up close and personal…so there are other people who want to make a profit from that. They capture the orca from the wild, and they rip them out of their families and they dump them into these concrete tanks and make them perform tricks. People pay to go and see that, they’re brainwashed into thinking that this is a really good thing to see and a good thing to do, it’s “family entertainment”, and they  just don’t seem to realize how much these animals suffer.” - Dr. Ingrid N. Visser
