Ontario Veterinarians are trying to figure out why a 12-year-old killer whale died at Marineland in Niagara Falls, Ontario. It's the fifth whale to die at the amusement park in less than five years.
Read more from WSTM/Syracuse.
There's been newborn Belugas almost every year, but very few Orcas at Marineland who have been breeding. It's just ashame since this park... trying to become THE premier marine park in the world... has had so many Orca deaths in the past decade, for what amounts to really unknown reasons.
Their Beluga habitat is top notch now with the addition of Artic Cove. I'm not so sure on how well the Orcas habitats are doing... but they should really import a couple Orcas to the park & start a breeding ground. The only way to save these creatures (ones in captivity) is to take great care of the ones you have & breed more for a better life.
