Show Love for Tilly This Valentine’s Day

Meet Tilikum, the largest orca in captivity. He weighs 12,500 pounds and measures more than 22 feet in length.

 

He was torn from his family in the wild when he was just a baby and has been imprisoned at SeaWorld and other marine parks for the past 30 years.

In their ocean homes, orcas like Tilikum swim up to 100 miles every day. But at SeaWorld and other marine parks around the world, they’re forced to swim in tiny circles to amuse human visitors and spend most of their lives in small concrete tanks far from their natural home. Think of it this way: That would be like forcing you to live your whole life in a bathtub!
