Dawn Therese Brancheau  was an American SeaWorld trainer who worked with orcas at SeaWorld Orlando for sixteen years until her death in 2010 at the age of 40. The movie Blackfish focuses on orcas in captivity, and specifically on Tilikum, who's been involved in three deaths. Brancheau appeared on CNN in 2000 and talked about staying physically fit in order to deal with the intense rigor of working with killer whales.
