When a whale is captured, trainers start to force whales to do stunt. The whales are forced to perform to people for money. According to Richard Bloom, “ Keeping orcas in captivity for human amusement must end. Forcing these intelligent creatures around is not right. ” This stated that forcing whales to do unnatural thing such as flips can be unhealthy for many whales.
These amazing creatures have been around for a very long time. They can live up to over 100 years! Sadly, many people are poaching these animals. As WWF states, “slaughtered for their eggs, meat, skin, and shells, sea turtles suffer from poaching and over-exploitation” (WWF). As many other people think, we need to stop this!
If you could save your mothers life by walking a couple yards to the nearest trash can would you? Of course you would! Dumping plastics into our oceans is a huge problem for our environment and the people that live in it. Plastics are killing our marine life. According to a Biological Diversity website (https://www.biologicaldiversity.org/campaigns/ocean_plastics/), the author states that “Thousands of seabirds and sea turtles, seals and other marine mammals are killed each year after ingesting plastic.” People keep littering and that littering is killing precious marine life.
Sea World and other facilities like Sea World need to make a bigger pool or never own whales because they belong in the wild. When you look into their eyes, you know somebody is home. When these killer whales were caught in the Puget Sound in the 1970 's and 1980 's people back then were greedy and only cared about getting paid. They did not care about the whales or their
Because they are unable to untangle themselves, they also die from starvation or from their inability to escape predators. On a report in 2006 called Plastic Debris in the World’s Oceans, It was estimated that at least 267 different animal species have suffered from entanglement and ingestion of plastic debris. Some species are consumers of jelly fish, but often mistake plastic bags for their natural prey, which obstructs the oesophagus of sea turtles therefor killing them. It has been estimated that about 400,000 marine mammals die annually due to plastic pollutions in the ocean. As said by Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra “One must be a sea, to receive a polluted stream without becoming impure”.
“We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment.” Many environmentalists believe this is true when it comes to businesses overruling the environment in so many cases. In the Japanese dolphin slaughters is a prime example of that. The dolphin slaughters are eventually going to cause an entire species to become extinct because they are killing around 20,000 bottlenose dolphins per year. Taiji, alone, kills more than 2,300 Bottlenose Dolphins during the hunting seasons (Glionna). Japan likes to say that they are only doing this for the dolphin meat and to sell the living dolphins; however, this is a false statement because there is little to no demand for dolphin meat (Miller).
Despite common beliefs about the threat to human beings, they do not attack people without a definite or convincing reason; therefore, the commonly held view of the “man-eater” is erroneous. Consequently these marine animals should be protected but the shark hunting should be banned because of their high rate of extinction. In the period of Paleozoic Era, about 300 million years ago, marine life was arranged in a totally different way from now. Enormous creatures dwelled the aquatic depths and no smaller scale fish would approach them. For example, although it was a baleen whale, Archaeomysticetus was not like
Of the 260 million tons of plastic the world produces each year, about 10 percent ends up in the Ocean, according to a Greenpeace report (Plastic Debris in the World’s Oceans, 2006). Seventy percent of the mass eventually sinks, damaging life on the seabed. The rest floats in open seas, often ending up in gyres, circular motion of currents, forming conglomerations of swirling plastic trash called garbage patches, or ultimately ending up washed ashore on someone’s beach. But the washed up or floating plastic pollution is a lot more than an eyesore or a choking and entanglement hazard for marine animals or birds. Once plastic debris enters the water, it becomes one of the most pervasive problems because of plastic’s properties: buoyancy, durability, propensity to absorb waterborne pollutants, its ability to get fragmented in microscopic pieces, and more importantly, its proven possibility to decompose, leaching toxic Bisphenol A (BPA) and other toxins in the
Although recycling makes a difference, many container still end up in beaches and oceans. The drink containers cause death and injuries for many wildlife and marine creatures. Animals like whales and dolphins become victims of land litter, as 80% of majority of the plastics comes directly from land. Dr Jennifer Lavers, researched the impacts of plastics on marine life, claims that 85% of Australian marine birds are affected by plastics (Stop trashing Australia, 2012). Apart from animals getting tangled in debris, it is extremely harmful when there is run down fishing gear, as it results in ‘ghost fishing’.
This causes heavy disease to spread around the environment due to unwholesome and unnatural confinement of living creatures. As US farming industries kill more than 30 millions bird each day and 10 billions bird in a year, this animal carnage can pollutes a land, air, and water that contains variety of diseases including bacteria, chemicals and viruses. Also, poisoned well water is a major issue on the Delmarva Peninsula which kills about 600 million chickens per year and it results 3.2 billion pounds of raw waste, 14 million pounds of phosphorous and 49 million pounds of nitrogen. Another situation happened in southeastern part of us which areas are being turned into fly-infested places by the poultry industry. The wildlife habitat is destroyed to erect new poultry houses, slaughtering plants and worker’s trailer parks.
In today 's modern world as we expand, we are taking away habitats from animals and other diverse ecosystems. By doing this we are causes animals to become endangered and extinct. One animal that is harmed by the expansion of humans is the manatee. The manatee lives in warm shallow water next the the shore because that is where the animals have access to food and other resources. As humans expand they are producing more waste and need a place for it to go.
Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful. 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.
The clams also clog water intake systems in private boats and homes, costing owners hundreds of dollars to fix. As a result, the clams did negatively impact tourism, property values, the environment, and the general economy of the town of Lake George. Not only did the Asian clam result in high intrinsic costs (i.e. removal, treatment, eradication, etc. ), but it also resulted in extremely high extrinsic costs on the town as well (i.e.
Fishing is definitely one of the most widely spread sport and is used as a way of life. Many people live off fishing whether it’s catching and selling fish or catching and eating fish. Anyways, the reasons why I think we need to come up with a solution for this crisis is because we have seals and sea lions killing off salmon, ODFW making rules that makes it tougher to catch salmon, and we have dams that are raising the water lever. My first reason why I think we need to solve this problem is because we have seals and sea lions that are eating a bunch of salmon in the Columbia river. And yet the worst part is, they aren’t even native.
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. Only why the trainers have close relationships with the whales because they are feeding them fish. All whales in captivity are traumatized. (Blackfish) The campaign is called “Meet the Animals” that involves introducing their
