A beloved Bay Area orca is now calling Southern California her home.

Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo announced Monday morning Shouka has been safely flown to SeaWorld in San Diego.

The 19-year-old female killer whale arrived at Six Flags in 2004 and was very popular with visitors.

The move was made so she could be with other orcas. She was not getting along with her dolphin companion in Vallejo.
