In many ways, orcas and humans are not that different. Both orcas and humans are social animals and rely on communication to express love, frustration and even let each other know where there is a good place to grab a snack. For this session we'll be joined by Bridget Penner, youth learning facilitator here at the Royal BC Museum, as she explores how orcas vocalize and what it can tell us about how they live and interact with each other.
During the session we'll also play a fun listening game and create a short craft.
RBCM @ Home (Kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.
