The Last Orca To Be Born At SeaWorld Just Arrived

Galeno Paniagua | 24 Abril, 2017, 08:40

The birth of the last ever baby orca at a SeaWorld park has been caught on camera.

Public pressure to free captive killer whales hit a peak with the 2013 film Blackfish, which heavily criticised SeaWorld for its treatment of the animals.

The calf was born in San Antonio, Texas. SeaWorld said it had been a smooth delivery and both mother and calf appear to be healthy.

She was pregnant for about a year and a half, according to SeaWorld, and was already carrying the baby when the company announced last March that it would stop breeding orcas in captivity.

El ambiente en la sede de la candidatura de Emmanuel Macron es de euforia absoluta, con gritos de " Macron, presidente! ". De esta competencia deberá surgir el sucesor del actual presidente, el socialista François Hollande .

This new calf brings the company's number of killer whales in the United States to 23.

"These are extraordinary moments", he said by phone while traveling to the US from Abu Dhabi, where SeaWorld is developing its first new park without orcas.

Birth control and "social management" will prevent future orca pregnancies, said spokeswoman Suzanne Pelisson Beasley.

The calf was born after an 18-month gestation and is estimated to weigh between 300 and 350 pounds (136 and 159 kg) and measure between 6 and 7 feet (1.8 to 2.1 meters), SeaWorld said. Tilikum died earlier this year.

Nurkic to start for Portland in Game 3 against the Warriors
The Golden State Warriors have made a decision to rest Kevin Durant for Saturday's game three against the Portland Trail Blazers. Matt Barnes (right ankle/foot sprain), and Shaun Livingston (right index finger sprain) were also out for the Warriors.

"This is the last one, and that makes this a particularly big deal", SeaWorld Chief Zoological Officer Chris Dold said. Researchers say they will use the birth of the baby to study orca development in ways that can't be done in the wild. It was 25-year-old Takara's fifth birth. The first, Granny, was a wild orca and the matriarch of a pod living near Seattle.

SeaWorld has maintained the documentary was inaccurate and misleading, but campaigning by animal activists hit attendance figures in the run-up to its 2016 announcement to end captive breeding and to also introduce natural orca encounters "as part of its ongoing commitment to education, marine science research, and rescue of marine animals".

But PETA has argued the mother and baby should be "retired" to "a seaside sanctuary, where they may someday be reunited with Takara's mother, other children, and grandchildren". The pair will provide data and samples to studies focused on killer whale growth and metabolism.
