Orcas, or killer whales, are the largest of the dolphins and one of the world's most powerful predators. Yet the Sea World Corporation is currently capturing them and keeping them in captivity for as long as their life span, in some cases.
Orca whales make a wide variety of communicative sounds, and each pod has distinctive noises that its members will recognize even at a distance. They use echolocation to communicate and hunt, making sounds that travel underwater until they encounter objects, then bounce back, revealing their location, size, and shape. This is a beautiful sight to see.
Since the last fatality, in 2010, trainers have been stopped going into the water with the orcas an this is only prolonging their depression. This cruel and inhumane abuse tot he animals must not be tolerated any longer.
