Orcas are actually dolphins, and are pod animals that inhabit every ocean on earth. They stay in their pack, and are even recognized by the area of the ocean they live in. The Southern Resident killer whale population is extremely endangered, and there are less than 100 that comprise that pod. These orcas live around the Puget sound, and are facing starvation from the lack of salmon coming down the Snake river and out into the ocean.
While other killer whale populations are not endangered, the threats they face from over fishing, chemical pollution from contaminated food sources, and noise pollution from boats is still a real problem for them.
Between 1976 and 1989, at least 54 orcas were taken from the wild and sold in marine parks around the world. There are laws in place for the treatment of these animals in captivity, but there are no laws banning orcas from being held. As of March 2023, there were still over 50 orcas in captivity, with 29 born in captivity. Orcas lifespan can be up to 80 years in the wild, but in captivity their lifespan is severely shortened.
