Ingrid Natasha Visser (born 20 February 1966 at Lower Hutt, Wellington, New Zealand) is a marine biologist known for studying Orcas whose work was showcased in the film The Woman Who Swims with Killer Whales.

The Woman Who Swims with Killer Whales[edit]

A film by Mark Woodward was shown at the 9th annual San Francisco Ocean Film Festival.


The killer whale is among the ocean’s most feared predators, but New Zealand’s Ingrid Visser thinks differently–and by swimming among her beloved whales she has come to know nearly all of them by sight. An unusual number of recent deaths spurred her to investigate the cause. Her findings reveal disturbing new information about the health of our oceans. —MJS
