Alexis Martinez was killed by the 14 year old killer whale Keto (Jacobs). Keto was born in Sea World but was later separated from his mother and was sold to a water park in Spain, Loro Parque. Keto suffered with separation issues from his mother and had frequent run ins with his tank mates causing tension, anxiety, and stress to build. On December 24, 2009, Keto pulled Alexis Martinez into the tank where he drowned. Orca whales are not meant to be captured and put on display, they are wild animals who live up to their names, killer
Wild animals such as the killer whales should not be kept in captivity because they are dangerous , breeding a dangerous whales produces more potentially danger. Tilikum is known for his killing Sealand trainer Keltie Byrne .” When she fell into the pool containing all three orcas, she was pulled to the bottom of the enclosure by Tilikum tossed around among the three orcas and ultimately drowned “.Seaworld heard that the 12,000 pound orca was on the market they quickly purchased him for its breeding program. 54 percent of Seaworld 's orcas have his genes. The fact that seaworld is breeding their most dangerous whale tilikum, it should be taken into further into account, because the more whales in captivity with his DNA the more dangerous work becomes for trainers and other that encounter these animals.
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
Marlin met Dory first, a forgetful fish who helped Marlin learn patience and freedom. Marlin’s greatest fear was that Nemo was dead or gone forever. On the way to save Nemo, Marlin faced other difficulties. When Marlin found a way to allow freedom and fun back into his adventure, he began to understand the helpers and tests he endured. Marlin’s worst fear was resolved when Nemo found his way out of captivity.
“Tilikum” SeaWorld 's largest orca, is responsible for the deaths of three trainers, which all three deaths could have been prevented if SeaWorld would have recognized the behavior change in Tilikum. The most recent death to occur was Dawn Brancheau, where Tilikum “scalped and dismembered Dawn as well as breaking bones throughout her body before drowning her.” (Prothero) Since Tilikum was the biggest orca in captivity, he need the most space which led to SeaWorld isolating Tilikum into his own tank. This may have looked like a great idea on paper but because of his isolation Tilikum was literally going psychotic. “Stress of captivity drives Tilikum to exhibit abnormal repetitive behavior, including chewing on metal gates and the concrete sides of his tank—so much so that the most of his teeth are completely worn down.”
and “we might as well fry them up now and serve them with chips!” The drop off commonly known for open water which is where fishermen take their boats to fish. This is also the area where Nemo gets taken by a scuba diver. Another example of this is when Marlin and Dory are on the hunt to find Nemo and a whale eats them. While they are in the whale’s mouth you can hear Marlin heavily breathing and he is frantically swimming up and down trying to find a way out.
And they are both related to the environment. In the book Flush, by author Carl Hiaasen, the main problem is the fact that Dusty Muleman, the owner of a gambling/casino boat, is dumping the sewage off the boat into the ocean illegally. The Night of the Spadefoot Toads, by Bill Harley, deals with the extinction of habitats, vernal pools, for Spadefoot Toads. Books like this show the obstacles characters face to give justice to the environment and the life that lives in
Chapter 1: In Chapter 1, we have been introduced to the three main characters in the book, the setting and also the relationship that exists between the characters. • Abel Jackson, is a ten year old boy who loves the sea, “Abel loved being underwater” (Page 5, and is an excellent diver and “could never remember a time when he could not dive” (Page 5). His mum is his teacher, “Everything he knew on land or under the sea he learned from her” (Page 6).
This may have been prevented if McMurphy would have stood up for Cheswick against Nurse Ratched but he didn't. Therefore this shows McMurphy has tremendous power now in the ward and Nurse Ratched knows it. That’s you can say Nurse Ratched fears McMurphy because he's not like the rest of the patients that she can control McMurphy is different. For my third and final example is how McMurphy organizes the Deep Sea Fishing trip and just needs one more man for the trip.
Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine. Sharks are very at-risk for over-fishing because they take a long time to reach the stage where they can reproduce and in general only have a few pups when they give birth.
SeaWorld has been in the spotlight for several years now. Whether it is negative or positive publicity, someone is talking about SeaWorld; from the new animal births at their facility, killer whales attacking their trainer and the sudden unexplainable deaths of many of their animals. In 2013 the documentary “Blackfish” explained how SeaWorld’s animals and staff are really treated. Since the release of Blackfish, SeaWorld’s image and attendance has gone down the drain. SeaWorld San Diego’s attendance is down 12% and SeaWorld Orlando is down 8% (Weisberg, 2015).
Over time in the hot yellow sun they had to fight off sharks with oars and their hands, they lost almost half their body weight due to malnutrition, their bodies became dry and swollen, they had to patch bulletholes in their rafts after a japanese bomber shot at their rafts, and McNamara ended up dieing on day 33 of starvation and dehydration. That 's only scratching the surface of what happened to them on their 47 days at sea though. On their 47th day they came to a boat near a pacific island that was Japanese territory and 2,000 miles away from where they crashed. They were taken into captivity as POWs by Japan. After being nursed somewhat back to health, the deputy commanding officer of the boat where they were cared for, gave them food and news.
How can anyone look at the whale crying and think that is morality because it is not. Whale ate one of the trainers. Tilikum is responsible for the deaths of 3 individuals, including a top killer whale trainer, Dawn Brancheau. Blackfish shows the devastating consequences of keeping such intelligent and sentient creatures in captivity. They knew Tilikum was dangerous because in his profile information it states, “Sometimes lunging toward control trainer” 70 plus killer whale trainer accidents but no one talks about them.
His dad was pretty amazed at how his son managed to survive in a terrain so inhospitable. His mom was kinda like that is cool but I do not care all I care about is that you are safe and sound now. Brian also tells his parents that he also trained a falcon to hunt small game for him like rabbits. I thought this kid was pretty creative with his situation and how he was smart enough to look for shelter first then build a fire and to only
