Wikie was born in captivity and is a 100% Icelandic whale. At the young age of eight, Wikie became the youngest orca to be artificially inseminated (AI) in a collaboration between Marineland and SeaWorld. The resulting offspring did not survive. She was AI'd a second time resulting in her first son, Moana. In late November 2013, Wikie successfully gave birth to a second male calf, bringing the total number of captive orcas to 53. This calf is rumored to be fathered by her half-brother Valentin.
