Orcapedia presents a sobering look at the current imprisonment of a highly intelligent, socially complex, non-threatening species?orcas?by an industry strictly for profit. Many remember the movement to release Keiko, the orca who appeared in the family drama Free Willy, into the wild. Today, there are still dozens of orcas still in captivity. Readers are introduced to more than 60 individual orcas by name along with colored photos, personal history, and notable incidents that have occurred during their captivity. The text makes it clear that they are imprisoned ?inmates? and instills a full understanding of the injustices being perpetrated. Five pages of named headstones graphically illustrates the problems they face. Resources and recommendations on alternative interactions with orcas are provided. One of the authors, Captain Paul Watson, is the founder of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and has worked on the front line for decades trying to protect the ocean?s wildlife.
