Corky II with her wild mother A-23 Stripe*(now deceased since 2000). This undated photo was likely taken prior to her being collected in a 1969 live capture.
Today, Corky (who lived at Marineland of the Pacific for 17 years until 1987), currently resides at SeaWorld San Diego where she has adopted a number of calves over the years.
Note: This is an actual screenshot of the photo of a baby Corky with Stripe as seen on the TV documentary Call of the Killer Whale which was on PBS in the United States, but on National Geographic overseas. The display of this photo is not meant to promote any anti-captivity agenda of any kind and it’s only displayed for those interested in seeing old photos of wild orcas and nothing else.
