Such care. Much love. Not. Please do not bring up the Blue World Project like it’s going to make such a difference because it’s not. I’ll rip your lungs out. #SeaWorld #orcas #orca #killerwhales #killerwhale #blackfish #animalabuse #animalcruelty
Fifty three years ago this week the first orca known to be captured on the west coast was taken into captivity. “Wanda” was caught in Newport Harbor, California and lived for 2 days in captivity. Over the next 15 years, over 60 orcas were captured and the Southern Resident orca population dropped from about 120 to 70 members.
Fast forward to today, and the population is only at 78.
Instead of captivity, one of the biggest threats is lack of prey. You can help us do something about this by signing our Letter of Support for the removal of four dams in the Pacific Northwest, which will help increase the salmon population.
