Corky's calf 77

Credit: Marineland of the Pacific

Corky 2's calf was a newborn male orca born on February 28, 1977 at Marineland of the Pacific. He was Corky's first calf and the first calf born at the park. His father is Orky 2. He passed away on March 15, 1977.

On February 28, Corky went into labor with her calf. It was not known that she was pregnant until the calf's flukes appeared. She gave birth to her calf and Orky 2's assistance. He was the first orca to be conceived in captivity. Corky tried to care for her calf, but unfortunately, she didn't know how to nurse. Trainers and veterinarians attempted to step in, but sadly the calf passed away.
