77 Cetaceans Died at SeaWorld While Keiko Was Being Rescued

| Eva Marrero
Topics: Captivity Industry, Keiko, Orcas, Sanctuaries, SeaWorld

SeaWorld has long rejected the notion that whale captivity is animal abuse, relentlessly defending their profitable incarceration of orcas, dolphins and other small whales.  In one TV advertisement, trainers confidently announce to the camera that their whales “thrive… with the highest standard of animal care in the world.” Yet they routinely deny that whales can be released from captivity. The often point to the Keiko project - the famous orca who was rehabilitated in a seaside sanctuary after his liberation from a facility in Mexico  – as a failure.

However, the numbers clearly say otherwise.

Data from the renowned website Cetabase.org reveals the shockingly high death toll of animals taken from the wild and bred in captivity, both in American facilities and those around the world. During 1996 and 2003, the total years of Keiko’s rehabilitation and his release into his native waters:

 

 

8 ORCAS DIED AT SEAWORLD

77 DOLPHINS AND WHALES TOTAL DIED AT SEAWORLD

20 ORCAS DIED AT FACILITIES AROUND THE WORLD

325 DOLPHINS AND WHALES DIED AT FACILITIES AROUND THE WORLD
 

 

Below, we provide the names of all these individuals. 

Not only are the total deaths staggering on their own, but the data includes very high calf death percentages, and reveals how Sea World relentlessly breeds orcas and dolphins who’ve already suffered miscarriages or the deaths of their young, and often continuing to breed the same individuals in very quick succession with no regard whatsoever for their psychological and emotional well-being.

But, that’s just a part of SeaWorld’s business model – one that doesn’t include wellbeing of orcas, dolphins or any cetacean.

Check out these numbers for yourself.
