Today’s post (sadly) inspired by: Last Orca Born In Captivity At SeaWorld Dies At Just 3 Months Old. (And maybe there’s a message here…). Here’s a picture of Kyara swimming with her 25-year-old mother Takara.



  1. Wow! Absolutely stunning images – I love whales. I lived on North Bondi cliff headlands, a rock face of 30 metres. Once hanging clothes on the hills hoist outside I felt something behind me – I had no neighbours just a cliff and the ocean behind me – I turned, kind of creeped out a little bit and there were whales in the ocean! So, so beautiful! Thank you for these images, they are stunning!

  7. Living in captivity as a whale is equivalent, if not worse than a human living under house arrest for a lifetime. Such a beautiful picture to underline the sadness of the message D:

  8. Beautiful photo, heartbreaking tale. On a related ‘sad aquatic’ note, saw a horrible piece this morning about some ‘sport fishermen?!’ in Florida who tied a rope around a shark’s tail and dragged it behind their boat at high speeds for an extended period. What are we coming to?….

  9. That first image is amazing.
    I loathe that these beautiful creatures are captured and, as far as I’m concerned, tortured, by living in such small spaces. I was so proud of my boys last year when I brought them to Cuba. They refused to go swimming with the dolphins because they don’t believe they should be enclosed….

  12. I’m touched with sadness … but also relief that they will no longer be breeding orcas and are phasing out having sea mammals in captivity. It isn’t right. Full stop.

  13. No zoos. Period. What’s the point of breeding in captivity when a species natural habitat is gone (the only “legitimate” reason for a zoo)? Just prolonging a painful end.
    Today I am sorry to be a human being.
