SPAIN-ENVIRONMENT-ANIMAL-ORCAS-SAILING

A picture taken on May 31, 2023 shows the rudder of a ship damaged by killer whales (Orcinus orca) while sailing in the Strait of Gibraltar and taken for repairs at the Pecci Shipyards in Barbate, near Cadiz, southern Spain. Groups of killer whales have rammed hundreds of small boats off the coast of Spain in recent years, in "terrifying" behaviour that has baffled scientists. The attacks began in 2020 and they have taken place mainly between Cadiz and the port of Tanger in northern Morocco near the Strait of Gibraltar. So far this year, Spain's coast guard has recorded 28 "interactions" between orcas and sailboats. (Photo by JORGE GUERRERO / AFP) (Photo by JORGE GUERRERO/AFP via Getty Images)
