Last Orca Born in SeaWorld Captivity Dies

Kyara is shown with her mother Takara who was born at Sea World San Diego in July 1991

"Kyara had faced some very serious and progressive health issues over the last week that the animal care and veterinary teams had been aggressively treating", SeaWorld said in a post explaining the whale's death.

A post-mortem examination is scheduled, but park veterinarians suspect she died of pneumonia, a common illness in whales both in the wild and in captivity.

She had also been separated from her mother, Takara, to avoid risking the spread of disease, said SeaWorld.

Takara got pregnant with Kyara a year ago when SeaWorld announced that it would end its #killer whale breeding program. Officials said the mother has returned back to normal after her daughter's death.

The baby whale was being treated for an infection over the weekend, the Orlando-based company said.

Kyara was the last orca whale to be born at a SeaWorld park.

Last year, SeaWorld announced that it would put an end to its killer whale show.

The plan is for their performances to be phased out by 2019, with a program of more "natural orca encounters" for guests, going forward.

The park came under increased scrutiny after the documentary "Blackfish" featured Tilikum, who killed a trainer in 2010.

.

SeaWorld has 22 orcas left in the U.S. The youngest, Amaya, was born in December 2014.

On Monday, Oscar-nominated actor James Cromwell was arrested at SeaWorld in San Diego during a PETA protest of SeaWorld, Variety reports.

"The animal rights organization noted that Kyara died on "#BoycottSeaWorldDay".

SeaWorld, which has not captured a wild orca in more than 40 years, now has 22 orcas left in the United States.
