Hey readers, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve noticed. Sea World Parks attendance has indeed … well, to put it lightly, it’s tanked. Reason? I’m going to show you this campaign website, and an organization fighting on behalf of captive and wildborn but whatever, orcas and those dolphins and marine mammals bred in captivity.
I’d like to dedicate this post to all those living and dead who have or have wanted to pursue marine biology. Now, here this is, ear me out, whatever.
Imagine you were a female orca mammal, killer whale, etc. You were interacting with trainers daily, fed hering and other sorts of small fish daily, but never left a cramped tank. On occasions, you and your pod would be asked to perform in front of humongous crowds of thousands. What is even more wrong with this picture is at twelve years old, you are forced to breed and possibly give birth to calves, baby orcas, at the sort of age where humans would be too young to do the same. If you die, so what? It would be the cost of doing business. Your calves would be separated a bit early so that the trainers would have more time with you. What’s wrong with this? Orca whales and other large marine mammals can be trained, but as my friend Theresa says frankly, you can’t train the whale out of a whale. So here’s what Fins and Fluke says, stop the captive breeding of orca whales, period.
Here’s the website for Fins and Fluke, feel free to sign the petition on Change wich is in the website under Campaigns. I enjoyed sea world parks, but the truth is, I love animals, especially what would be the Mighty Gods of the Sea. Tilicom killed his trainer because even with captivity around, he was still a whale.All the Shamu whales are stil wild animals and they cannot be taught differently. Dogs are dogs as well, Theresa says. Thank you all for your encouragement. Belive me, any boob can tell you a whale should not and does not belong in a tank, or forced to perform in front of thousands. Many companies have cut ties with Sea World and this is why.
