Kenai Fjords is a land dominated by ice; the ice of the massive Harding Icefield. Its ice feeds the glaciers that shape the land. Its ice melts, feeds the rivers and streams, and eventually, the great Pacific Ocean. This nutrient-rich water brings life for plants and animals alike. It is what is unique and special about Kenai Fjords.
Kenai Fjords is committed to learning about this fantasic resource, and its effects on land and sea, flora and fauna. We are also committed to learning about how we are impacting it.

“Killer whales” or orcas are actually quite friendly and often inquisitive about humans. In fact, the group of “resident killer whales” pictured here feeds entirely on fish. Only “transient killer whales” eat marine mammals. No wild killer whale has ever hurt a human being.
