The Orca Project Database has been compiled from multiple sources including National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Marine Mammal Inventory Reports (MMIRs), marine mammal publications, websites, newspaper and news archives, government oversight agencies and marine mammal park documents. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information in all reports and is believed to be correct as of the last update. To report errors/omissions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Updates page to submit an inquiry.
Where estimated dates were required due to insufficient historical data, values were calculated using the following criteria:
If day of month is not known: default day is “01″ (1st day of month).
If month is not known: default month is “01″ (January).
The Orca Project would like to share their extensive database containing killer whale Birth, Capture, Transfer and Death information and make it available to Marine Mammal Researchers, Scientists and Students who wish to further their studies. Data can be provided in Microsoft Excel format, customized to your specific application, sorted and filtered to meet your needs. Data and service will be provided free of charge, however, donations would be graciously accepted and will allow us to continue this important work.
