Ontario to ban orca breeding and imports

The government in Ontario, Canada, has introduced legislation that would prohibit the import of any more orcas into the province to be help in captivity. Furthermore, the new law would also ban the breeding of orcas.

The legislation forms part of changes to the ‘Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act’ which would also impose stricter standards of care for all marine mammals in captivity. If passed, the new legislation will be in place by the summer.

At present only one orca, Kiska, is held in captivity in Ontario at Marineland.
