Launch of The Orca Project Database

—————————————————–

The Orca Project Database has been compiled from multiple sources including the 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.

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).

To report errors/omissions, please contact webmaster@theorcaproject.com or use the form below. Thank you!
