• Fights

    Orcas who are not compatible are forced to live in tight quarters together. The
    resulting anxiety and tension cause fights between orcas. In the wild, orcas have
    strong social bonds that may last for life, their social rules prohibit serious
    violence against each other, and when fights do occur, they can find space to flee.
    In captivity, there’s nowhere for them to go, which leads to injuries and death.

    Nakai was injured on a sharp metal edge in his tank while reportedly fleeing from
    an aggressive altercation with two other orcas.
