teamorkid: “Kshamenk is a very good candidate to reintegrate into the wild for various reasons. According to information we have, Kshamenk was between five and six years old at the time of capture, which means he had several years to gain the experience necessary to survive in the wild, feeding on their own, navigating , communicate and use their sonar.” Please sign it!! This is even more...

scetaceans: Nothing much to say about yesterday. Everything seemed fine, but I do have a few nitpicks: Underwater Viewing I’m not sure if all of you have seen it, but it’s been refurbished to remove the rock siding; in addition they’ve installed a self-rising floor (seen in the photos). I walked down there at about 12:30, and the first words out of my mouth were, “oh god, this looks like a...

Update from Save Misty the Dolphin
discover-cetaceans: “We have made some progress” in Taiji, said O’Barry. “The number of dolphins being killed in Taiji have gone down for the past four years of our Save Japan Dolphins Campaign,” he noted. Meanwhile, the activist continued, “Japanese people, being warned about mercury and other contaminants in dolphin and whale meat, are buying less and less of it.”

The hypocrisy of pro caps
I have been disheartened to read some of the comments made by pro caps since Shouka’s arrival at SeaWorld San Diego from Six Flags. Some pro caps have been vitriolic in their attitudes towards anti caps. With hate and bile spewed towards us all day for being “hypocrites”, for seemingly being happy with the move and supporting captivity. Need I remind everyone that it was two...
Update from Wendy.- “UPDATE ON SHOUKA: Just got off the phone with CBS8 in San Diego. David Koontz from SeaWorld has stated that Shouka is with Corky and they are getting along. This is the first time in 10 years Shouka has been with another orca”. I’m glad Shouka seems to be doing well so far. Of course the best place for orcas is the ocean, but that was never an option for...
First official report on Shouka's move →
0rcinus0rca replied to your post - “The only other option would be for SeaWorld to move one [ or more ] of their Orcas to SF which would only have served to disrupt the Social Group at SWC. This is the least disruptive thing for the Orcas that could be done” I wouldn’t support another whale being sent to SF. Their facilities are appalling. They have been in trouble...

Anonymous asked: What's your opinion on Shouka's move?
Six Flags close in just a few minutes, once everyone is out of the park, that’s when getting Shouka and everything ready for the move will begin. Expect official news coverage to begin in a few hours.
Anonymous asked: I haven't seen one orca on that live cam :C

Southern Resident killer whale K40 (Raggedy), has not been seen in the last two encounters with K pod. The 49 year old sister of K21 (Cappuccino), has never been seen with a calf of her own. Chances are slim, but lets hope she turns up soon.

John and Jeff had previously discussed Gudrun’s pregnancy since she had begun to eat less food in the final weeks of gestation. They were also concerned about the health of the fetus. With the completion of G pool, SeaWorld had figured out a way to use Gudrun to generate new revenue streams. As one of its rare adult orcas whose dorsal fin had not bent over or collapsed, she was perfect to...

“I was there with girlfriend first and last time about 10 years ago to see the orca and dolphin show at the amphitheater. During the dolphin part of the show one of them started to bleed out of the blow hole. It was pretty obvious to everyone and one of the trainers in the water was looking for some direction from the trainer on the outside of the pool and all he did was make a rolling sign...
