Lists of Living and Deceased Killer Whales from The Orca Project Database

These lists includes all killer whales (Orcinus orca) known to be held in captivity and those that have died in captivity at marine parks, aquariums and holding areas throughout the world. The Orca Project Database has been compiled from multiple sources including National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Marine Mammal Inventory Reports (MMIRs), marine mammal publications, websites, newspaper and news archives, government oversight agencies and marine mammal park documents. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information in all reports and is believed to be correct as of the last update. The Orca Project has compiled an extensive database of Captive Orca information. We would like to make this data available to Marine Mammal Researchers, Scientists and Students who wish to further their studies. Data can be provided in Microsoft Excel format, customized to your specific application, sorted and filtered to meet your needs. The data and service will be provided free of charge, however, donations would be graciously accepted and will allow us to continue this important work. Please contact for more details or visit
