Kiska Dead at Marineland, Niagara Falls | Dolphin Project

Kiska, the last remaining captive orca in Canada has died.

Earlier today (March 10, 2023), Marineland, Canada announced the orca’s passing, stating: “Marineland’s marine mammal care team and experts did everything possible to support Kiska’s comfort and will mourn her loss.” For the thousands of activists made aware of her plight, her death comes as no surprise.

In 1979, at approximately three years of age, Kiska was caught in the North Atlantic ocean. She was transported to a facility in Iceland, where she was housed with four other orcas, including Keiko, of Free Willy fame. The two orcas were later shipped to Marineland, Canada. Keiko would once again be sent to another aquarium, this time, to Reino Aventura in Mexico, while Kiska remained at Marineland for the duration of her life.

Between the years of 1992 – 2004 she would give birth to five calves –

  • Unnamed (born in 1992)
  • Kanuck (born in 1994)
  • Nova (born in 1996)
  • Hudson (born in 1998)
  • Athena (born in 2004)

– all of which are now dead. One of Kiska’s calves died so young it was unnamed.

Since 2011, she lived in solitary confinement. Her plight prompted activists around the world to call her the “world’s loneliest orca”. Eight years later, in 2019, Canada passed Bill S-203, Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act, which would ban the keeping of cetaceans in captivity. Marineland, as an existing facility, was grandfathered in, and Kiska remained, alone, in her tank.

Over the years, visitors to the park would shoot video of Kiska circling endlessly in her tank, completing a sequence of repetitive behaviors. This would be her life, until the end.

“Kiska’s tragic passing marks the end of orca captivity in Canada forever. Let us remember her sacrifice for change. She was an amazing girl.” ~ Phil Demers, ex-trainer, Marineland Canada

In Honor Of Women’s History Month, Woman Kneels Before Man


NEW YORK, NY — In honor of Women’s History Month, a woman knelt down in front of a man to demonstrate subservience and submission. Witnesses described the historic event as “weird” and “an unusual way to promote the empowerment of women.”

The incident took place on the set of The Drew Barrymore Show, as the show’s eponymous host showed her feminine strength by kneeling down at the feet of famous male TikTok personality Dylan Mulvaney. “I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Women’s History Month,” Barrymore said in a statement following the show. “When Dylan and I were on the stage together, it was important to illustrate which one of us belongs on their knees. Yay, women!”

Cultural commentators hailed this as a monumental moment in the female empowerment movement, ranking it among other great moments in women’s history, such as Lia Thomas absolutely obliterating other competitors to win the NCAA Women’s Swimming National Championship and other athletes who were born biological males completely manhandling their female opponents.

“This is indeed a great day for women,” said Professor David Megli of the Institute for the Advancement of Women and People Who Say They Are Women. “There’s nothing that shows how far women have come than seeing a female down on her knees in front of a man on national television!”

At publishing time, Barrymore was reportedly already brainstorming other ideas for future segments, including doing Mulvaney’s laundry, cooking dinner, and asking Mulvaney to explain the complexities of football to her.
