Orcas Revisit Sri Lankan Waters?

A photo identification study shows that the same pod of transient orcas have been seen four times on the western and southern seaboards between 2008 and 2011.

  • March 15, 2008 in Kalpitiya, 1 adult orca

  • December 29, 2008 in Mirissa, 2 orcas

  • January 31, 2010 in Kalpitiya, 2 orcas

  • January 30, 2011 in Kalpitiya, 3 orcas incl. calf

The last two sightings were exactly one year apart in the same area and were travelling southbound on both occassions.
