The “Peaceful Memorial” for Kiska will be Held Outside the Marineland Amusement Park along Portage Road in Niagara Falls, Ontario on Saturday, March 18th from 10 to 11 A.M.
An Invite to All of Us to attend from Niagara animal advocates Jenny McQueen and Shadia Toderovitz
Posted March 17th, 2023 on Niagara At Large
Please join us for a quiet memorial for Kiska (an orca whale who lived in captivity at Marineland for decades and spent her last dozen or so years remaining there, as the only orca (“killer whale”) still living in captivity in all of Canada).
Absolutely everyone is welcome.
We’ll bring the big RIP banner. Feel free to bring your own signs too, and messages to display.
Kiska was beloved by all; so many individuals and organizations campaigned for her, for decades. Humankind failed her.
For those who can’t make it, opening day is May 20th. Let’s make that a massive demonstration too.
The following video of Kiska, floating listlessly, when not thrashing herself against a wall of her cement tank, was shot using a drone flying above Marineland within the last year or so by members of one of many animal activist groups hoping the whale could be transferred to a marine mammal sanctuary in coastal waters. They call this video, produced under the name UrgenSeas (https://www.youtube.com/@UrgenSeas/featured) “heartbreaking.”
