Loro Parque has reported on the death of 17-year old female orca, Skyla.

The young orca started showing some signs of discomfort a couple of days ago and died on 11 March at the facility.  Having been brought to Spain from the SeaWorld USA in 2006, and before the arrival of Morgan from Harderwijk and the birth of her daughter Ula two years ago, Skyla was the youngest of the orcas at the park.    Her death follows just four years after that of her father Tilikum, who died at SeaWorld, Orlando in January 2017.
