ORCINUS ORCA.

BLACKFISH.

THE KILLER WHALE.

A magnificent animal who epitomizes freedom: freedom from restrictions, boundaries, and arbitrary control; freedom to roam the vast oceans at will, unhindered and unconfined; freedom to experience the natural rhythms of the sea, the tides, the currents, and close-knit family ties. Yet for far too many orcas those freedoms have been denied, replaced by solitary lives spent in captivity for crimes that do not exist. 

IN THE WILD

Orcas travel in close-knit family pods, swim up to 140 miles per day, and dive to depths of 300 feet and beyond in their hunt for fish and mammals…

LONG GONE WILD

Orcas are confined to barren concrete tanks where their keen sonar-like echolocation system (for navigation, hunting, and communicating) all but shuts down…

IN THE WILD

Orcas are the “Brainiacs” of the planet. Their intelligence and cognitive abilities rival – and in some ways exceed – our own…

LONG GONE WILD

Orcas are forced to swim in endless circles and routinely separated from their families, stripping them of their heart and soul…

IN THE WILD

Orcas are the apex predators of the oceans, helping to keep the natural ecosystem in balance…

LONG GONE WILD

Orcas are fed a steady diet of dead fish while often kept on the verge of hunger as a control mechanism...

LONG GONE WILD

Orcas are forced to perform silly circus tricks to entertain unwitting audiences who leave with entirely the wrong message.

IN THE WILD

Orcas are built for strength, speed, and deadly force yet in their natural habitat they have never harmed a human.

 

In fact, there are numerous stories of humans, lost at sea, being guided home by orcas…

It is obvious that this is nothing more than a spectacle of dominance, that’s all it really is. And it teaches us that dominance is good, dominance is right, dominance works, and that’s really the danger. It’s not just an animal rights issue, it’s about the millions of people who come through there every year and learn that it’s okay to abuse nature.
