As a whole, whale hunting has become more and more conventional. It seems like nothing is wrong for hunting whales from the ocean. If this activity continues to be uncontrolled, whales will extinct in one day. Although whale hunting is known to be profitable to the hunters, whaling is still unacceptable because they are the beautiful creation of mother nature that we have to protect, it is considered as animal cruelty or abusion and it will cause pollution to the sea, thus becoming danger to human beings. First and foremost, whaling should be completely banned to
I feel that it was one of their most daring adventures and should have been included. Although, it has been reported that SeaWorld would not let them film inside after the documentary Blackfish was released. In the end, there are many ways to work around that problem and get one of the most relevant chapters in the
In the four days since extremists slaughtered 129 people in Paris, millions of witnesses — present only through their computer screens — posted prayers and pictures and promised solidarity. For four hours, then five, then six, they trended Twitter hashtags like #PorteOuverte and #PrayforParis. They laid French flags over their Facebook photos and shared images by artists like Jean Jullien. And just as quickly, their posts reverted: back to quips about sports teams, viral videos, pictures with friends — now posted by little avatars striped in the French blue, white and red. These posts feel inappropriate — indecorous, somehow.
Where’s my Ocean: Keiko’s Story Not many of us really think about how blessed we are to be free. We can go wherever we want to, when we want to, nobody can order us around, and there are laws to limit injustice. However, for many orcas and dolphins, this unfortunately isn’t the case. People treat them as ‘things,’ not living animals. Born on September 24th, 1976, Keiko the orca led a tough life.
Blackfish (2013) is an American documentary film directed by Gabriela Cowperthwaite and produced by Manuel V. Oteyza. The documentary primarily concerns the controversy of captured Killer Whales at the theme park Sea World, primarily that of Tilikum, an Orca responsible for the deaths of 2010 SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau and two other individuals. The documentary begins with this incident but goes as far back to the 1970 's show the audience how young Orcas are captured in the wild and taken from their families and natural environments. Since its release at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival Blackfish has achieved both critical acclaim and caused controversy regarding SeaWorld 's treatment of its animals as well as retaliation from SeaWorld as to the legitimacy of the film 's claims. The main purpose of Blackfish is to answer why a captured whale would become so aggressive and turn on its trainers.
“Of 1,880 cruelty cases reported in the media in 2007: 64.5% (1,212) involved dogs, 18% (337) involved cats, and 25% (470) involved other animals”. (“Human Society Organization,” 2014, para.5) Should there be such thing as animal rights? Yes they should because animals are just like humans. They have a nervous system and can be affected both physically and mentally. Animal Exploitation comes in many different ways.
A Global Citizen is someone who is informed, purposeful, active, and law-abiding in their community. In “The Cove” Ric O’Barry displays how he is a good global citizen striving to raise awareness for thousands of dolphins being slaughtered across the world. When Ric O’Barry first discovered that twenty-three thousand dolphins get murdered every year in Japan he was horrified. He became an animal activist who does anything to save and raise awareness for dolphins.Although Ric breaks the law he is still an informed, purposeful, and active global citizen. Throughout The Cove Ric O’Barry and his team break many laws in order to accomplish their goal of releasing the imprisoned Dolphins.
Many of the employees keep beating around the bush with respect to their answers and defend their company, stating that all its practices are ethical and legal. He even interviews the head of Corporate Social Responsibility who acknowledges the problem and says that there is ‘no way to trace the minerals back to the mines that they come from.’ Nokia in its annual reports and on its website claims to be a market leader in Corporate Social Responsibility and Conscious Capitalism but these claims are mostly fabricated. These are simply words on a piece of paper to convince consumers that the product they’re buying is blood free and ethical when in reality this couldn’t be further from the truth. Several NGOs that were also interviewed by Poulsen confirm this fact and state that even though they’ve had the knowledge of the existence of this problem for ten years they have done more or less nothing to even take steps toward solving this problem simply because it will cost them money and diminish their
Throughout Chinese history, it has been a long time, over twenty five years, since a truly haunting and scary event which was called the Tiananmen Square Protest and Massacre occurred on 4th June 1989. People around the world also know this incident with the other name – the June 4th event. Actually, the protest was initially led by students and then received a wide advocate from laborers with the aim of calling for freedom of press, freedom of speech, and the restoration of workers' control over industry. However, several hard-line leaders in the administration made a ruthless decision that the protest would be quickly suppressed by armed force. Hence, there is no denial that this massacre not only resulted in a large number of deaths but
In this respect, I will explain Linda Hogan’s book, People of the Whale, in the light of Christopher Manes’ article named “Nature and Silence.” Eight years have passed since the book named People of the Whale was written. In the meantime, the idea which is harshly criticized by the author is still a big question mark because the relationship between people and nature is getting worse each passing day. This book, which was published in 2008, narrates the story of Native American Thomas’ experiences both in his town and Vietnam War. The book which is based on environmentalist perspective successfully sheds light on the destructive side of the war as well. Historical Background Linda Hogan is Chickasaw, which raised her awareness in the migration problems such as the idea of melting pot.
