The orcas who were captured or rescued will not go by the year they were captured but rather the year they were likely born to get a better estimated age. For example, Lolita was captured on August 8, 1970, but was about 4 years old when captured. This would make her birth year approximately 1966. So her birthday will read August 8, 1966.

Currently in captivity there are:

  • 30 Captive Born Orcas
  • 28 Captured Orcas (+2 Unconfirmed Captures)
  • 1 Rescued Orca 

Note:

  • Wow, Dora, Goren and Kysalis' capture year are not confirmed.
  • Tyson and Nukka's capture dates are unknown.
