Whales Alive!

Vol. V No. 1 January 1996


Keiko/Free Willy: Keiko, the orca who was set free in the movie "Free Willy" but who remains a captive in real life, was moved from Reino Aventura in Mexico to new facilities at the Oregon Coast Aquarium on 7 January 1996. This is supposed to be the first step toward Keiko's eventual release, but whether that will ever happen depends upon the resolution of several factors, among them Keiko's health, and the politics of releasing him in the waters of Iceland.
