Once the whale has decayed the bag is free to kill other marine life many more years to follow. One plastic bag can potentially kill at least a single an animal every three months because of inhalation or digestion. Once the amount of plastic bags littered is considered, 1.5 million to 3 million, the extremely high amount of lives lost is realized. The death is not quick for any of them either, they will suffer a slow and excruciating death. This is because their digestive system becomes interrupted and the plastic causes intestinal blockage and toxicity.
(blackfish). No living creature should be separated from their mothers at such young age. Sometimes, the whales that are not captured are harpooned and killed when they threaten to interfere with the others captivation. (10 things you didn’t

Millions of sharks are killed by humans every year from the process of finning. Finning is where the fins are cut of a shark for shark fin soup, which is considered a delicacy, after that, the body is then thrown back into the ocean while the shark is still living. This is not only wasteful but also cruel and inhumane. By the time you finish reading this paper, about 856 sharks are killed from this. That adds up to about 11,417 sharks per hour and 100,012,920 every year.
This caused the other experienced whale to become frustrated with Tilikum and she would rake her teeth across his body, forming many scars. Another issue mentioned in the documentary was where the whales were kept. They kept the whales in a dark, metal, twenty by thirty foot pools for the majority of their lives. A former Seaworld trainer described the modules as “floating steel boxes.” According to Ken Balcomb, director of the Centre for Whale Research,“If that is true, it’s not only inhumane and I’ll tell them so, but it
Zoos are highly unsafe for animals. Every day animals are being forced to entertain the public. 62 orcas have died at SeaWorld for the entertainment of selfish people (Krushel n.p). Colin Bairone one of Tilikum’s old trainers said, “I think everyone has a better understanding of the natural world and the intelligence and social infrastructure of these amazing
In the documentary Blackfish, two women recount the story of a Sealand trainer, Keltie Byrne, falling into a pool of orcas and ultimately paying the cost of her own life. These women and an entire crowd of people watched in horror as Tilikum, one of the orcas, pulled her to the bottom of the pool and all three of the orcas took turns tossing her around until she drowned. Since then, orcas have been viewed as dangerous and lethal. However, this is just not the case. These majestic animals are gentle and at times playful in their natural habitat.
I am here to speak on behalf of the starving children around the world whose cries go unheard. I am here to speak for the countless animals dying across this planet because they have nowhere left to go. I am afraid to go out in the sun now because of the holes in the ozone. I am afraid to breathe the air because I don 't know what chemicals are in it. I used to go fishing in Vancouver, my home, with my dad until just a few years ago we found the fish full of cancers.
Why? Last October 15 2015 there’s news from a 20-year-old German woman found dead after being stung multiple times by a box jellyfish at a tourist-popular Thai resort. The woman was pleasing an evening swim on Tuesday on the island of Koh Samui when she was stung by the jellyfish, whose venom can kill an adult within minutes. A friend of the woman, also a German tourist, was stung on the hand by a jellyfish but survived. There’s also an incident happened here in Malalag Davao Del Sur last January 4 2014, wherein an eight-year-old boy died after he was stung by a jellyfish while swimming at a beach resort.
Waste such as plastic, water bottles, straws and so on we all know these materials cannot be digested and can cause the animals in the sea died. Marine animals would assume that plastic water bottle and a straw is devoured. Therefore, they will eat this waste will in turn cause choking, cannot be digested and eventually they die. There is also the case a few months ago, where a turtle was rescued when a straw sticking out of his nose. If no rescue parties, possibly turtle was going to die so soon.
