What Freedom Looks Like for SeaWorld’s Killer Whales | TakePart

“Welcome to Double Bay,” the marine mammal scientist, who has studied captive and wild killer whales for decades, says with a smile. “This, I think, would be a terrific home for Corky.”As I survey the serene swath of wilderness, I find it hard not to agree. Corky the killer whale is one of the star performers at faraway SeaWorld in San Diego. In 1969, at around age four, the orca was snatched from her family (which still patrols this area each summer) in a notorious roundup in Pender Harbor, on the British Columbian mainland. Six whales were removed from their pod and sold to theme parks and aquariums, hungry for more of the crowd-pleasing ticket sellers. Now, nearly 47 years later, Corky is the longest-held captive orca.
