    When the cream-colored fin was first seen breaking the ocean waves in 2012, the research scientist could not credit it. Could that really be an adult white killer whale, contrasting vividly with the blue water off the coast of Russia? No-one had ever spotted a mature specimen with that idiosyncratic coloring before. It was a wonderful moment to witness, but three years on from the sighting and the eager academic had not set eyes on the fantastical creature since.

    Chasing the great white whale has been a metaphor for obsessive ambition ever since Herman Melville published Moby-Dick in 1851. But for some it is a very literal rather than literary pursuit, as with 67-year-old whale expert Erich Hoyt. However, whereas the creature who starred in Moby-Dick was a sperm whale, the Akron, Ohio, scientific researcher and conservationist’s main interest is the orca – or killer whale.

    Hoyt is actually the co-founder of the Far East Russia Orca Project, which studies the Orcinus orca species in the oceans around the largest nation on Earth. Until the project’s initial mission in 1999, Russia’s orcas were largely overlooked by the global scientific community. However, thanks to the efforts of Hoyt’s initiative, humanity now has a better understanding of the great killer.

    And it was during his work with the Far East Russia Orca Project in 2010, that Hoyt spotted something super rare – a male white whale. Orcas usually boast a striking black-and-white color scheme. So it is no surprise that a pure-white specimen made the scientist sit up and pay attention.

    It's amazing how killer whales hunt almost anything with such great skill yet if they come across a human in the water they just say hello & keep on going , they never seem to attack people in the wild , also impressive to watch when they follow behind our boats etc. Brilliant creature !!

    His color didn't affect his social standing among the others? Humans could learn a thing or two from animals sometimes.

    +Jennifer Aylicia judge? animals are dumb compared to humans, in my experience at least animals dont have the odd fetish of bashing their own species to virtue signal

    did you just inject race into this? for one, thats not a different race of orca, but there are for humans and second who said it was bad to have a race preference? especially an ingroup one? where is this contract of the world that says humans should race mix?
