Defining the Purpose
The image below shows a trainer getting attacked by a Killer Whale. In the incident the trainer was playing with the orca under no supervision which is against the rules at SeaWorld. While she was playing with it, out of nowhere the Killer Whale grabbed her foot and dragged her into the pool. The trainer got away luckily but in other attacks between Killer Whales and trainers, most of them died.

The SeaWorld Commercial
The image below shows a group of Killer Whales together in the pool. In the documentary, they did a study on an Orcas brain and found out that Killer Whales are very emotional and grows bonds with each other more than any other mammal even humans. This proves that being in captivity is affecting them a lot. They need to support each other in order to get the little happiness they can.
