White killer whale adult spotted for first time in wild

First male adult all-white orca filmed off Commander Islands

Say hello to Iceberg, the first known all-white adult killer whale.

“Scientists from the universities of Moscow and St. Petersburg are hoping he’ll become a symbol of conservation for the ocean.”

To see more pictures of Iceberg and the other white orcas of Russia, visit the orca photo page on Russian Orcas.

Eric Hoyt has written a blog entry about Iceberg, FEROP (Far East Russia Orca Project), and Russian Cetacean Habitat Project.
