Best Book of the Year Finalist and EVVY Gold Medal Winner!
Orcas Forever is the dramatized story of a true-life event. It opens a window into the hidden lives of the three Southern Resident orca pods that inhabit the waters called the Salish Sea between the northwest coast of the United States, and the southwest coast of Canada.
The story invites young readers to follow the orcas’ daily activities as they prepare to gather for a special celebration. They will learn about the sophisticated ways these orcas communicate, the importance of their strong family ties, and their unique culture playing out beneath the waves.
The Afterword highlights the threats that the nearly extinct orcas confront from human interference and how these threats are linked to some of our environmental problems.
