Kiva

Credit:Marineland

Kiva was a newborn female orca who ws born at Marineland of the Pacific on June 16, 1982. Her mother is Corky 2 and her father is Orky 2. She passed away on August 3, 1982.

Unlike her two older brothers, Kiva made attempts at nursing soon after birth. Sadly, Corky still did not know how to nurse her calf. Trainers and veterinarians decided to tube feed her and Kiva gained weight. Corky would keep a close eye on her daughter, but allow the trainers to do so. Even though, Corky became very protective of her calf and would handle her roughly. Kiva was playful and active at times. Corky ended up becoming too rough and the two were separated. Sadly, a few days after the separation, Kiva became ill and passed away.
