July.17.2014 - The calf of Sif, a Harbor Porpoise at Fjord & Baelt, has passed away at 2 days old.

According to the translation of the News article, the calf had died the morning of July 17th after it would not nurse it’s mother, Sif.
“Fjord & Belt was ecstatic when the porpoise, Sif, for the second time gave birth to a new baby calf. 
  The joy did not last long, however, as the calf, which was too little, did not nurse from his mother. 
  The staff nursed by Sif and gave it to the calf in the hope that it would stimulate the digestive system and hungry. 
  It unfortunately not.”

"In the aftermath of her second baby’s death, Corky had taken to lying by the window to the room where the gift shop merchandise was stored. For hours on end, Corky sat next to tiny stuffes orcas stacked against the window. We were never certain whether the fuzzy toys reminded her of her baby or whether she thought one was her stolen baby."

SeaWorld is 50 years old and we have 50 good reasons NOT to go there!No. 33:  In the wild, the mean life expectancy of orcas is 30 years for males and 50 for females. While a very small number of captive whales has achieved these average life spans, most die in their teens and 20s and none have come anywhere close to the estimated maximum life spans of 60-70 years for males and 80-90 for females.
