Similar to the Mickey Mouse Antenna ball that once you see the sphere with the two ears on it you instantly know that is Mickey Mouse, we are hoping the OrcaBall will gain iconic global recognition in the same way and assist in educating people that Orcas do NOT belong in captivity. We are hoping to see these on cars, in homes and offices around the globe.
The OrcaBall Antenna Topper and OrcaBall Sticker were designed to represent an Orca in captivity with a collapsed(drooped over) dorsal fin. This is an iconic representation for what happens to 100% of male Orcas in captivity and some of the females as well.
The Orca Research Trust receives 10% of every OrcaBall Antenna Topper and the Orca Network receives 10% of every Orcaball Sticker we sell. The fourth endorser standing along side of us is the Voice of the Orcas group. The VOTO are made up of the four key Ex-Sea World Trainers that were featured in the movie Blackfish. They are 100% behind our product and they consist of, Jeffrey Ventre, Samantha Berg, John Jett and Carol Ray.
Be one of the lucky callers when you hear the dolphin chime and win an OrcaBall with sticker for your own personal use and don't forget to send them a picture of you and your OrcaBall!

Dr. John Jett, visiting professor of biology at Stetson University and a former SeaWorld whale trainer, appeared in the film Blackfish, an award-winning documentary about the problems associated with keeping orcas in captivity.
“SeaWorld and other marine parks have historically based their business model on expertly controlling the flow of information in a way that best fits their monetary interests,” said Jett. “Because of Blackfish (and other works, such as David Kirby’s, Death at SeaWorld), they no longer control the message. Blackfish has forced the conversation to begin evolving from one of a manufactured fairytale ("The whales love us and they want to do tricks...") to that of being honest and accurate. The documentary is unprecedented in the 40 years orcas have been in captivity, in that for the first time...former orca trainers have come forward to provide an honest look behind the curtains. The scene is often quite ugly... ”
This interview original
In January 2014 I did a show about Blackfish, the eye-opening documentary that uncovered and exposed SeaWorld for decades of animal abuse, neglect and kidnapping baby orca whales from their beloved families in the world's oceans. This was a very powerful 'first show of the year' that touched so many of you.
Since it's release and continued airings on CNN, Blackfish has been causing major waves at SeaWorld, including rapid declines in attendance and ticket sales and collective debates as to whether or not orca's belong in captivity. Millions of people from around the world have got onboard The Blackfish Effect, and continue to spread the world about the documentary in hopes of one day shutting down SeaWorld and releasing the orca's back into their natural environment.
Former SeaWorld trainer Samantha Berg (who was featured in the Blackfish movie) talks with us about her thoughts on Blackfish, SeaWorld and what will likely be the future for the beloved Tilikum. Samantha was most generous with her time and spent nearly 20 minutes with us when we were only scheduled for 3-5 minutes! Thanks again Samantha! For a remainder of the show, we'll opened up the phone lines to hear from you, and your thoughts about Blackfish & SeaWorld. Oh yes, and my Mother makes an appearance....

Alex Louise Dorer of Fins and Fluke and Mini Krishnan of Orca United will join me to talk about the upcoming Marineland Protest: Free Kiska on Saturday, May 31 at 11:00am at MarineLand Canada 7657 Portage Road, Niagara Falls, Ontario L2E 6X8.
Since the release of the documentary "Blackfish", there has been a huge momentum to help liberate captive orcas across the world from inadequate living conditions at marine parks. Kiska is the last captive orca in Canada, and has been named as the saddest and loneliest in the world. This event will highlight the issues of marine mammal captivity and will focus on calling for Kiska's release to a seapen or more suitable home with other orcas. It will be to draw in more support in closing down Marineland, and will follow a protest on May 17 to help to continue the pressure on the park. All are welcome to join!

The Light of Humanity Show - The Wisdom of the Whales
Guest: Mary J. Getten
Topic of Inspiration: Experiencing the magic of whales and the gift of wisdom and love they bring to the world.
“When you step into the water with a Humpback whale and you look at them eye to eye you are being accepted unconditionally, and you are surrounded with such a force field of love, that I think it really heals us at our core. I think that’s why people come out of experiences in the presence of whales feeling whole again.”
Our "Inspirationcasts" are good news radio broadcasts featuring people that are "lighting up the earth" in positively wonderful ways. We show people it's cool to be kind and the experiences that are created from these acts of goodness create magical moments and wonderful stories that demand re-telling.

They are an animal that possesses great spiritual power not to be messed with
All whales in captivity experience psychological trauma: It's not just Tilikum
These are animals that have highly elaborated emotional lives
There's no record of an Orca doing any harm in the wild!
In 1970 Divers used speedboats, bombs, & planes to heard & corral Orcas to abduct their young. The adults refused to leave while their young were being taken and 3 died in the nets, which they cut open, filled with stones, & anchored their tails to sink them. In 1976 Washington State evicted them forever from our waters. They abducted Tilikum from Iceland when he was only 2 years old. In 1991 he pulled a trainer to her death. It was buried in the news merely as a drowning and the park closed selling Tilikum to SeaWorld for breeding. More deaths have been attributed to Tilikum, who is now ketp locked up in a pen most of his day. Do you think it would be okay to be ripped from your family as a child and imprisoned for life?
This movie is worth watching to update your thinking about live animal theme parks.
When Young Orcas are ripped from their moms and pods the wailing and crying continues hopelessly lound and unceasing. Seaworld even did this with their captivity born Orcas further traumatizing the animals they were charged with better custodial care. It is a sham, a lie.
It is inhumane and Shameful. How is this different than Slavery in America? The Assimilation movement of boarding schools for Native American children, also ripped from their families? Yes they aren animals and it still unethical.
