This beautifully illustrated book chronicles the history of world famous Marineland of the Pacific and features over 200 rare color and black a white photographs. A number of these historic Marineland images were selected from the author's own personal archive of original photographs, including the only known full color photographs taken of the actual birth of the world's very first killer whale ever to be conceived and born in captivity. Marineland of the Pacific opened in 1954 and during its reign as one of the premier tourist attractions in Southern California it managed to educate and entertain millions. 33 years later Marineland's controversial closing outraged a community and the world lost a truly remarkable institution.
