Killer Whales that Feed on Land

Wednesday, November 12, 2008 @ 6:30 PM

On the remote and wild Peninsula Valdes along the coast of Argentina, Gretchen Freund has witnessed and recorded what few people have ever seen: the rare and extraordinary sight of Orca whales strategically stalking and targeting sea lions and elephant seals from offshore and then abruptly beaching themselves to devour their unsuspecting prey.

As a principal researcher for Punta Norte Orca Research and a highly talented and experienced nature photographer, Gretchen has documented this rare and revealing behavior over the course of ten dedicated years. She will be sharing her exquisite photographs and insightful observations of these illusive “Wolves of the Sea.”
