Also known as the killer whale, the ORCA is found throughout all the world’s oceans, and is believed to be the most widespread mammal species after humans. An intelligent and versatile predator, the orca shows a wide range of different hunting techniques. The orca is a social species, communicating using a variety of screams, clicks and whistles, as well as through physical behaviours such as breaching, slapping the flippers or tail, and ‘spyhopping’ (bringing the head out of the water).
Tilikum. This beautiful orca has been through so much in captivity. Establishments like Seaworld have destroyed his mental and physical well-being. In the wild, orcas have human-like lifespans, but in captivity they only live for about thirty years; and ~100% of males in captivity have collapsed dorsal fins compared to less than 1% in the wild.
The artist known as Banksy has created an anti-theme park called "Dismaland" that features macabre art and dreary displays that are sure to draw a crowd. The artist promises the exhibit will be the "the UK's most disappointing new visitor attraction."
