For a century, the killer whales of Twofold Bay herded baleen whales towards the harpoons of local whalers, helping them hunt and sharing the rewards. It was a life of industry, adventure and a strange and rare partnership between whale and man. In Killers in Eden, Danielle Clode explores how this relationship between whaler and killer whale developed. Using our knowledge of killer whales to entangle fact from myth, Danielle uncovers the truly remarkable history of the killers in Eden.
