To commemorate Children’s Day, Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park has finally announced the birth of a killer whale. The male calf was born on September 10, 2021 at 1:16am. His mother is Cookie 饼干 and his father is Dillon 胖虎. At birth he weighed about 233 kilograms and measured 2.5 meters long. After almost nine months, the calf now weighs about 411 kilograms and measures 3 meters long. The calf is described as healthy and spends everyday with his trainers enjoying enrichment activities. Users can submit name ideas for the calf in a contest underway on the park’s WeChat account. The winning name will be announced on June 16. Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park has been temporarily closed due to COVID-19, but the park will have a limited reopening by reservation starting June 3 and reopens fully on June 11, which is also when the calf will make his public debut.

New video posted today on Baidu Tieba, a Chinese communication platform, shows a close-up view of a recently born killer whale calf at Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park. The video was taken from the Killer Whale Theater zoomed in on the calf in a back pool. The video is likely to have been filmed recently. Posts about this killer whale calf were not previously made on this page because although specific, China Cetacean Alliance’s initial post on Weibo regarding this calf had no evidence and their second post on Weibo with the aerial view had minimal context.

Current status of the future orca exhibit building at SunAsia Beluga Whale World Coastal City in Yingkou, China. Right now it’s just a grey cement rectangle. Once open it will be a colorful cement rectangle with whales inside. Like every killer whale exhibit in China, this aquarium is significantly delayed and an opening date is unknown.

Today, November 16, 2019, is the one year anniversary of killer whales being on exhibit to the public in China. Over the course of the year, millions of guests visiting Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park have seen their four orcas. According to those who have worked directly with the orcas at Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park, the four whales, which are all said to be healthy and have been gaining weight, have acclimated very well and are comfortable in all pools and all social groups.
More than seventeen hundred photos and videos that have been collected over the past year have now been added to the aggregated photo album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/xhAEezeUjV1xGXD28

New photos from this week of Chimelong Marine Science Museum and SunAsia Beluga Whale World Coastal City show the rapid construction taking place on both projects. The latest reports say that Chimelong Marine Science Museum is "expected to be completed within the year" and SunAsia Beluga Whale World Coastal City will enter trial operations this October with a grand opening in May 2019. The killer whales at SunAsia Beluga Whale World Coastal City will likely go on display closer to the grand opening next year.

For the first time concept art and a detailed view of the official layout have been released for Chimelong Marine Science Museum’s killer whale exhibit. The exhibit is designed to simulate the whales’ natural environment - this includes sunlight from the overhead glass atrium, rockwork and trees, and most significantly a large scale wave machine in which waves will flow into the main tank (Pool A) which is also the show pool. Pool A and Pool C will have underwater viewing windows. The completion date that was previously announced as being the second half of 2019 is very tentative and will likely be pushed back to some point in 2020. In addition the official name of the complex has yet to be determined with Chimelong Marine Science Museum just being used temporarily.
