NEVER BEFORE SEEN FOOTAGE: On December 26 2014, while in pursuit of the poaching vessel Thunder, the crew of Sea Shepherd ship, Bob Barker, encountered a pod of rare “Type D” Orcas.

Marine ecologist and (Antarctic) Orca expert Robert L. Pitman, examined photos taken of the encounter, and confirmed the Orcas as “definitely a type D killer whale”. He added, “I don’t think they have ever been filmed alive.”
