"Captivity is still captivity. No matter how gentle the jailer, or size of the cell. It's still prison"
- John Hargrove
....captive orcas had higher mortality rates than wild ones; now, new analyses of data up until 2010 had confirmed that the situation..."has worsened."
Captive female orcas were giving birth too young and too often, leading to a higher death rate among both adults and infants.
The most common cause of death...was infection. Chronic stress might also be an important factor in weakening the animals immune response.
