Orca steht für: Orcinus orca, eine Walart aus der Familie der Delfine, siehe Schwertwal · Orca – Der Killerwal, US-amerikanischer Spielfilm aus dem Jahr Febr.

Whalers more often considered them a nuisance, however, as orcas would gather to scavenge meat from the whalers' catch. The killer whale's intelligence , trainability, striking appearance, playfulness in captivity and sheer size have made it a popular exhibit at aquaria and aquatic theme parks.
From to , 55 whales were taken from the wild in Iceland, 19 from Japan, and three from Argentina. These figures exclude animals that died during capture.
Organizations such as World Animal Protection and the Whale and Dolphin Conservation campaign against the practice of keeping them in captivity.
Captives have vastly reduced life expectancies, on average only living into their 20s. Wild males who survive infancy live 31 years on average, and up to 50—60 years.
Critics claim captive life is stressful due to these factors and the requirement to perform circus tricks that are not part of wild killer whale behavior, see above.
A study coauthored by staff at SeaWorld and the Minnesota Zoo indicates that there is no significant difference in survivorship between free-ranging and captive killer whales.
The authors speculate about the future utility of studying captive populations for the purposes of understanding orca biology and the implications of such research of captive animals in the overall health of both wild and marine park populations.
As of March , SeaWorld has announced that they will be ending their orca breeding program and their theatrical shows. They previously announced, in November , that the shows would be coming to an end in San Diego but it is now to happen in both Orlando and San Antonio as well.

After witnessing his mate and child's death from Nolan's hands, Orca, the killer whale, goes on a rampage in the fishermen's harbor.
Under the villagers' pressure, Nolan, Rachel and an Indian sail after the great beast, who will bring them on his own turf.
Written by M Lalonde. Orca is the greatest movie of all time. I'm sure most people say that their favorite movie is the greatest of all time, but they are all wrong.
Orca brings together some of the finest actors. Richard Harris, who unfortunately will be remembered for some trivial movie about a boy wizard and a throwaway musical about King Arthur, does his finest work in Orca.
His portrayal of Captain Nolan, an emotionally torn fisherman coming to terms with the fact the marine animals have feelings, deserved the Oscar.
No, that is not a strike against this fine film. Charlotte Rampling brings texture to the marine biologist in love with a whale baby killer.
The romance between the two is subtle. While most modern Hollywood movies would just throw in a gratuitous sex scene, Rampling accomplishes just as much with confused looks and having her shirt zipped down in one scene.
Will Sampson, who is sadly better known for some movie about flying over a cuckoo's nest, also does a fantastic job of playing the Native American guy who says cryptic things and has ice fall on him.
Robert Carradine, famous for Revenge of the Nerds, shows great range in not being around much and then being eaten by the whale.
Bo Derek never equaled her success in this film elsewhere. I really believed her leg was bit off.
The effects were great for the time. Many forget what special effects were like in those days, myself included because I was not born yet, but the point remains.
The strange fisheye lens used to represent the whales point of view was genius. And I challenge everyone to find a more realistic looking whale fetus in a movie.
You can't, you just can't. The dramatic fight between Captain Nolan and the whale could have easily become silly, but it doesn't. The Arctic Circle is accurately represented as a cold place with many iceberg, some of which whales can thwack themselves upon catapulting middle-aged Irishmen forty feet in the air.
Keep in mind, also, this was done without the use of computer graphics. Steven Spielberg did not even put the shark in Jaws until over halfway through the film.
To hide a machine so fake that I can only assume one of his children made it at camp. The mechanical killer whale in Orca is almost indistinguishable from the stock footage of killer whales continually played throughout the movie.
In , how many directors were brave enough to shoot a killer whale jumping from one side of the boat, eating actor Robert Carradine, and landing on the other side?
Just one, Michael Anderson. His bold choices along with screenwriters Luciano Vincenzoni and Sergio Donati who both show an above average command of the English languages for native-born Italian speakers make the film a statement not only about whale hunting and whale forgiveness seeking, but also about humanity.
Although it can be used as a package authoring environment, Orca is mainly recommended for its powerful editing features.
It also requires database-related knowledge as it can directly modify the tables of the supported files, thus faulty operations may result in corrupt installers.
Orca provides users with a professionally-looking environment. It presents a simple, clean and classic interface with everything you need to get the job done in the right place.
Users are able to access the tables and data streams of the loaded database and perform modifications on-site.
Tables can be imported and exported while schemas can be adjusted. The application also comes with in-depth transform management, validation tools or module merger.
