Imagining the ocean school experience

You are gliding underwater with a pod of orcas.

One of them stops to look at you. It's so close you could touch it. Suddenly the whale dives. You look down into the depths and follow it.

You surface and climb onto a waiting boat. Somebody's talking to you.

           "Did you enjoy your dive?"

You turn and find yourself face-to-face with marine scientist Sarika Cullis-Suzuki, daughter of award-winning scientist and broadcaster, David Suzuki.

Sarika describes the critical role apex predators play in the ocean food web. Behind her an orca leaps out of the water. You freeze-frame it in mid-leap, then glide over to have a closer look. Text and graphics slide out next to the whale detailing it's weight, age, diet preferences, swimming speed and migratory pathway.
