INOUK

Inouk was born at Marineland Antibes to two Icelandic orcas, Sharkane* and Kim 2*, which makes him too 100% Icelandic.

From a young age, Inouk was intensely curious and known for sizing up human visitors through the glass walls of his tank.

His size is comparable with female orcas much younger than himself, and he has an unusually short dorsal fin.

In 2005, his father died, and 4 years later, his mother followed, which was very hard for a barely 10 year old Inouk. He was very close to his mother and spent the majority of his time with her. Sharkane was the main waterworks whale, and after her death, Inouk took her place.

During the birth of his sister, Inouk helped his mother through the delivery, a duty normally performed by the dominant female of a captive pod.

Today, Inouk is 18 years old and still resists at Marineland along with Moana, Wikie and Keijo.

On April 27th, 2017, a male finless porpoise was born at Ocean Aquarium of Quancheng (Quancheng Polar Ocean World) in China after a 146 minute labour. With a body length of 67cm and a weight of 5.8kg, the young cetacean was quickly transferred to a protected pool, arranged with personal care, to ensure he did not slam into the pool walls. Once satifised the calf was healthy enough to survive without human intervention, medical staff reunited him with his mother after a two-hour separation.

These words and piece of information I found from Jeffrey Ventre was quite intriguing to me as I'm sure it will be to you. SeaWorld has been linked and involved in dolphin drives. In this case, in Japan, false killer whales shipped from a drive to Kamogawa SeaWorld then to SeaWorld here in the U.S. (The top of the letter reads 'Kamogawa SeaWorld') as I had to crop it due to multi-post. Here's his words;

"I worked with 5 false killer whales during my years at the Whale & Dolphin Stadium in Orlando. These Pseudorca were captured in Japanese drive fisheries. I recently was provided paperwork evidence for Teri’s capture/transfer to SeaWorld. He was collected in Taiji on 21 February 1983 and routed via Kamogawa Sea World in Japan, to SeaWorld in California. While I don’t have the paperwork on all 5 that I worked with (Teri, Suki, Hana, Zori, Yaki), Teri and Suki are confirmed from Taiji, and the others are suspected from Taiji, although there is more than one drive fishery for small cetaceans in Japan. While not ground-breaking, it does provide evidence of a direct link between SeaWorld, Taiji, and Kamogawa Sea World. The whale on the right is Hana. She is/was so cute. All five of the pseudorca died young in captivity. In general, the trainers did not know of the brutal collection history of these whales while working at SeaWorld in Orlando. That information was kept from us or was warped to make it seem like SeaWorld saved the animals. The reality is that SeaWorld created the demand which grew the drive fisheries & the industry world wide. JV"
