Harbour Porpoise

Harbour Porpoises are one of the smallest cetacean species and can be very hard to find. Frequently sighted once or twice off the sides of boats in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Harbour porpoises almost seem to disappear as soon as they’ve been spotted! Though their populations are thought to be steady and stable they continue to be an important species to study due to their somewhat shy nature and their role as a mid-range predator. A favourite for Bigg’s Killer Whales, Harbour Porpoise tales may not always have a happy ending for the porpoise but this serves as a critical reminder of the crucial role prey plays in the lives of their predators.
