Orca captivity is one of the most debatable topics that gained popularity with realizing of the documentary Blackfish. A small artist named Megan drew a painting showcasing the death of an orca at SeaWorld in San Antonio. The painting showcased an orca that was pushed down at the bottom of the fish bowl leading to its death.
The orca that died in the SeaWorld was suffering from Candida (fungus). Wild orcas are said to live closely with their families and suffer from several problems when held captive. The males have an average life span of 30 years while females can live up to 50 years but the orca that died was just 18 years.
