Posted March 17th, 2023 on Niagara At Large

Kiska, the now late orca whale, served more than 40 years in captivity at Marineland in Niagara Falls,, Ontario

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 ( “heartbreaking.”
