How to use orca in a sentence?

  1. Ben Williamson:

    An end to SeaWorld's tawdry and circus-style performance is inevitable, but it's actually captivity that denies these far-ranging orca the opportunity to engage in behaviors that are natural and important to them.

  2. Aroon Melane:

    We heard there was a beached killer whale so we went to go find it. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration gave permission to keep the orca wet and protected from animals until they could arrive, we were working on getting a hose and pump to work. In the meantime, we used buckets to keep the orca wet. The orca started getting more lively after we put water on it.

  3. Alison Towner:

    I've seen some incredible things working with the Dyer Island Conservation Trust, butone thing I never ever expected to see was predation pressure from killer whales, we had never even seen an Orca here prior to 2011.

  4. The Dolphin Project:

  5. Los Angeles-based director Cowperthwaite:

    This is a defining moment. The fact that SeaWorld is doing away with orca breeding marks truly meaningful change.
