The Killer Whale Who Changed the World

eBook - 2016
Rate this:
The fascinating and heartbreaking account of the first publicly exhibited captive killer whale - a story that forever changed the way we see orcas and sparked the movement to save them. Killer whales had always been seen as bloodthirsty sea monsters. That all changed when a young killer whale was captured off the west coast of North America and displayed to the public in 1964. Moby Doll - as the whale became known - was an instant celebrity, drawing 20,000 visitors on the one and only day he was exhibited. He died within a few months, but his famous gentleness sparked a worldwide crusade that transformed how people understood and appreciated orcas. Because of Moby Doll, we stopped fearing 'killers' and grew to love and respect 'orcas.'
