For next week’s Watch & Wonder Highlight, we’re thrilled to feature this episode of Wild Scandinavia. After watching, dive deeper with resources about Orcas, also known as “Killer Whales,” and their predatory style of hunting on PBS LearningMedia.

Explore Scandinavia’s wild and unpredictable coast, a place of haunting beauty and dangerous extremes. In Life on the Edge, this journey begins around the Swedish Baltic Sea, which includes iconic fjords; home to eagles, otters, base jumpers, and orcas.
