In this episode of Wild Lives By Faunographic we chat to naturalist guide Paulo O’Connor about his wild work with the incredible orcas of the Salish Sea, on Canada’s west coast.

Throughout his career, Paulo’s worked as a ranger and naturalist all over the world, from American Samoa to Churchill in the Sub-arctic, and countless wildlife hotspots in between.

His many years working as a zodiac pilot and naturalist with the killer whales of British Columbia have given him a unique perspective not only of the area’s individual orca pods and their behaviours, but also of what makes them the most intriguing predator in the ocean.

And if you’ve ever wanted to know what it’s like to see transient orcas hunt right off the bow of your boat, Paulo has the adrenaline-charged story for you!
