to use the excuse of educating people who cannot afford to travel. To justify us trying to recreate the habitats of these animals. We now live in an age that every house has a TV and wifi. We have HD shows to enhance the vision. We may not be able see them in person but we can still learn about them see every single hair through technology. Because all zoos are really doing is taking your money and taking the wild out of a wild animal.
We need to realize the issue with this is that these animals aren't breaded for education, they are breaded for the amusement. People now days will pay anything for entertainment. Well you might be asking “ Humans have always caught and caged animals, for either entertainment or as an assertion of power” (source A). Always does not mean forever and I think it’s time for a change. “While many of the handlers are undoubtedly well-intentioned and love the animals, the fact is that parks such as Sea World are …show more content…
You can’t help but feel bad for her death, but in all reality this all could have been prevented if Tilikum was left in freedom to swim as he pleased (Source D). Undoubtedly this was and will not be the only. time an animal will lash out on its care provider not will it be the last time to even kill one. Due to the mental instability. Just think wouldn't you go crazy, If your whole entire life you were force to live in a bathtub?(soruce D)
“Love her but leave her wild,” I think this quote applies to so much of what people are trying to explain. “love er but leave her wild” I think this quote applies to so much of what people are trying to explain it’s not that we're against the education process of learn about these animals but if we truly care for something we have to let it be free. That was the way we were put on this earth and that is the way we should keep
It 's clear that the living conditions that these animals are forced to live in are just plain unethical, but something even worse is the relationship between animals in captivity and a spike in their stress levels. “It 's irrefutable that many zoos drive animals insane -- and if that isn 't cruel, I don 't know what is” (Masci) For starters, SeaWorld is one of the most notorious places in the world accused of stressing out their animals. Since the tanks are so small the whales tend to get very stressed out, and some former workers even say that the whales seem to go psychotic. “ If you were on a bathtub for 25 years, don 't you think you get a little irritated, aggravated, maybe a little psychotic ” (“Blackfish”)? A clear example is when one of the
These people supported this as SeaWorld made posts through different social media websites and commercials. On their YouTube page, they uploaded an advertisement for their website stating they do not “collect killer whales from the wild”, and they have the “highest standard of care” on the globe. It ended with what became a popular hashtag on Twitter, #AskSeaWorld (SeaWorld). SeaWorld's website openly answers the people’s questions. With such a slogan, “You ask.
Do you remember that day that you and your family took a trip to that one park? That one that you got to see many different types of sea animals, dolphins putting on shows, and getting to even interact with the sea animals in a great learning experience. That park is SeaWorld. When you were there, you might have not noticed the stuff that was happening behind the scenes. Lately, the animals have been very sad and not living healthy lives.
Many people will argue that SeaWorld trainers are performers rather than biologists, when in reality, they must now pass a certain amount of tests and examinations before coming in contact with any animal. They also only care about the fact that SeaWorld keep Orcas in captivity, but will have no problem with a zoo. This is hypocritical and unfair, as, just like zoos, SeaWorld contribute
Furthermore, this can be the cause of all the incidence including to what happened to Dawn Brancheau who was completely mutilated by a whale. Despite the interview with a former trainer, from a document which was published after the release of Blackfish by SeaWorld to object
Animals exhibits are places of wonder and study for scientists and everyday people, without them, most people would never have to opportunity to see even a quarter of the life that populates their globe. Many zoos in the United States are held to high standards of
The viewer of this documentary is going to believe an actual research or specialist over a simple animal trainer. The former trainers in the film admit to believing what they’re told by SeaWorld and now they know that the information SeaWorld told them was false. Seaworld made another false accusation when trainer Keltie Bryne fell into the pool and was pulled under by the six-ton orca Tilikum. Sealand of the Pacific said she drowned, but many people witnessed her getting pulled under. There were photos and videos, but Sealand continued to make this claim until they were eventually shut down and Tilikum moved to SeaWorld
Zoos have always been something that families love and kids look forward to going to. Kids learn about the animals and the habitats and enjoy the entertainment. It is a great experience for people, but not for the animals. Zoos are downright cruel to Animals. Animals our forced to live in an unreal stressful, and boring conditions.
Wild animals are called “wild” for a reason. How can we be educated about wild animals when we are not seeing them in their natural environment? Captivity lacks the ability to show animals true behaviors. A polar bear’s enclosure is one-millionth the size compared to its home in the wild (Derr). With nowhere to go the polar bear ends up spending 25% of its day pacing and walking around in tight circles (Derr).
One case of this being shown is when children see what is happening to these animals it very much hurts their views on life and societies actions. For example an article written by Jenson E. states, “It is hardly surprising to learn that most children visiting zoos are neither empowered nor educated by the experience of seeing captive wild animals so far removed from their natural habitat. Zoos present an entirely false view of both the animals themselves, and of the real and very urgent issues facing many species in their natural homes. This new research appears to confirm what we have said for many years. Zoos do not educate nor do they empower or inspire children to become conservationists”(Jenson E.).
The target audience of this documentary is the general public that includes a big emphasis on the customers of SeaWorld. The filmmakers are trying to inform the public of the inhumane treatment and the conditions that the orcas face while at amusements parks such as SeaWorld. As described in the film, orcas are seen as intellectual animals that are aware of their surroundings. Because of their intellect, orcas don’t belong in a place SeaWorld and should be released.
The childhood dream of owning a pet monkey or tiger is a common one, but that’s all that owning an exotic animal should be: a dream. Over 10,000 exotic animals are trafficked into the United States each year, a multi-million-dollar industry on the black market. Owning a wild animal may seem fun and exciting, but with the ownership of such a creature, dangerous consequences follow. The ownership of an exotic animal not only puts the owner 's life at risk, but the animal 's and the environments. There is a common theme among people that it 's humanity 's responsibility to preserve the world we live in, yet there are more tigers in captivity than there are in the wild.
This is exactly how animals held captive in zoos and sea-parks feel. Zoos generally hold a variety of animals for public display, also known as “zoological parks.” On the other hand, sea-parks, hold fish and amphibians. These parks that exhibit animals are inhumane and barbaric. Vulnerable creatures are being abused daily and few seem to care about this issue.
Zoos are places where animals are put on displays and where they have to live their entire life. People can visit zoos for money and watch animals like they are in some kind of television show or commercial program what is done for people only. People have to notice that zoos are not people entertainment. It is seems like animals in zoos should be free and live in wildlife where they belong.
