Last week, Nalani turned 8 years old at SeaWorld Orlando. She was born to Katina and Taku on September 18, 2006. However, her story is quite abnormal… Nalani is SeaWorld’s first inbred killer whale; Katina and Taku mated, even though they were mother and son.

9 days after little Nalani was born, her 4-year-old brother/uncle, Ikaika, tried to mate with her. Her father/brother, Taku, was also aggressive with her. For some reason, Katina did not try to prevent these things from happening, as she seemed to favor her sons over her new daughter. In an attempt to resolve this issue, SeaWorld put nursing Katina, Ikaika, and Taku on benzodiazepines (drugs). Then Taku was shipped from Orlando to SeaWorld San Antonio and Ikaika (aged 4) was banished to Marineland Canada on a breeding loan.

The following year, Taku died prematurely at age 14 from West Nile Virus, which he contracted from a mosquito bite due to logging at the surface—something that would never occur naturally in the wild. After a legal battle between SeaWorld and Marineland, Ikaika was exported back to the U.S. in 2011, but instead of being reunited with his mom and siblings in Orlando, he was sent to San Diego, where he is currently held.

Katina and her 3-year-old son, Makaio, have recently been recorded mating. Additionally, little Makaio and his now 8-year-old inbred sister, Nalani, have also been witnessed mating. What will the future hold for this family?
