As pressure on the captive orca programs at SeaWorld and other marine parks continues to grow, many animal advocates have turned to examine the lives of wild orcas as a comparison to those in tanks. And lucky for them, those lives are nothing short of spectacular -- and can be seen from any laptop with wifi access. It's the perfect way to appreciate the beauty of orcas -- without harming them in the process.
