[Editor’s note: At the end of 2013 there were 52 orcas living in captivity around the world. Every week this year, 52Orcas is profiling an orca so we can better understand his or her life history. Here are all the whales the group has featured so far in 2014 — and come back each week to see the new featured orca.]
For over 50 years humans have developed relationships with captive orcas (aka killer whales). At the end of 2013, there were 52 orcas housed at various marine parks around the world. Each of these creatures has a unique history that we will document through a series of profiles: graphic representations of the international captive killer whale population. Every week we release a whale, sharing their unique story. Our goal is to honor the distinct identity of each of these majestic creatures.
