Tilikum – Improving but not out of the woods

May 21, 2016

A lot of fans have been asking for another Tilikum update, so we’re back with the latest from Director of Animal Training Kelly Flaherty-Clark. While our teams continue to treat him with care and medication for what we believe is a bacterial infection in his lungs, we are encouraged by some improvement in his lab tests.

As we’ve noted from the onset, Tilikum is an older whale, and has some good days and some not so good days, but will continue to receive the world-class care that SeaWorld is known for. Keep checking back here for the latest updates, and be sure to check out more about Tilikum, as well as the rest of SeaWorld’s orcas, on our Orca Profile Pages.
