#FreeKiska the female Orca alone and exposed to the hot sun, without cover in a shallow tank waiting and calling.
All her 5 calves died in Niagara Falls through captivity.
The age of Kiska is reported to be approximately 39 years old.
Ongoing protests, petitions and more have helped lead to new legislation such as the Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act, passed in 2019, but the 60-year-old park still remains open, to much controversy.
Newly-released footage of one of the most well-known animals in the zoo, a lonely killer whale named Kiska, has reignited the indignation of those who believe such creatures deserve a far better quality of life — ideally, one in the wild — than Marineland can provide.
Hopefully the renewed calls to action, as well as the findings of the welfare inspection, will mean that Kiska and other tenured Marineland residents can be relocated to a sanctuary or otherwise have their environment and quality of life improved in some major ways.
Marineland did not say in the documents how many whales have died. Both the province and Marineland did not answer questions about the deaths.
How long has Kiska been alone? Emaciated, toothless, isolated for 7 years at Marineland in Canada, Kiska lost her five children, her companion and her friend. The brain gnawed by memories, she gradually immerses herself into madness. Nov. 29, 2018
Marineland owns the vast majority of living whales and dolphins in Canada, according to the whale-tracking site Cetabase. The park has an estimated 51 beluga whales, five bottlenose dolphins and a 40-year-old killer whale at its facility in Niagara Falls, according to Cetabase data and media reports. The park has not confirmed those exact numbers.
Marineland says it remains confident that it complies with all aspects of the new bill, which is awaiting royal assent. The park claims the exemption for its whales “acknowledged Marineland’s role as a custodian for the cetacean populations that call Marineland home, and specifically acknowledged that Marineland Canada’s actions are not inherently animal cruelty.”
The bill passed by the Senate does not explicitly mention Marineland or animal cruelty.
