Orcas: Our Shared Future

May 13, 2023 - January 29, 2024

Dive deep into the stories and science that surround the magnificent orca, apex predator of all oceans.
Follow the currents of ecological activism, popular culture, and Indigenous beliefs to gain a new appreciation of these sophisticated animals, long feared in Western cultures as “Killer Whales.”
Orcas: Our Shared Future includes more than 100 original artifacts and specimens, featuring life-size Orca replicas, fossils, films, objects from popular culture, and original artwork from the Indigenous peoples of the North American west coast.
Discover the complex social structure of orca society and reflect on the surprising consequences of captivity. Learn which orca populations are thriving and which are at risk, and resurface with a new understanding of how orcas and humans are inextricably connected.
