Killer Impact 
Killer whales (Orcinus orca) are the oceans’ apex predators; over 140 species of marine vertebrates have been reported as killer whale prey. Their top predator status and eclectic diet, along with their large energy requirements, means that killer whales can have big effects on marine ecosystems. In the Southern Ocean elephant seal (Mirounga leonina) populations crashed between the 1950s and 1990s. Since many killer whales prey on elephant seals, some researchers suggested that killer whales may have caused the declines (a top down explanation) while others suggested that environmental changes were the primary drivers of the crash (a bottom up explanation). At Marion Island in the Southern Ocean, nearly 15,000 elephant seals have been marked and resighted through their lives to try and understand how the environment is changing. Recently researchers have also started studying the killer whales there (which can be individually identified by their unique dorsal fins) to fathom how they can influence other species. In this photograph, an adult female killer whale – M002 (right) – and her three year old calf – M027 (left) - try to drag a one year old elephant seal – GR346 – off a ledge. The coloured ‘tags’ used to uniquely identify the seal can be seen in its hindflippers. The photograph illustrates predator-prey relationships, and how datasets on two species can intersect. - x
