Alabama Trip My mom and and dad told me in December that we were going to Gulf Shores, Alabama to visit my grandparents.

SeaWorld is one of the most visited amusement parks in the United States where families are able to get together and see animals and their trainers perform incredible stunts. However, SeaWorld has been under the flame after the public opinion of SeaWorld drastically changed after the release of the movie Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite in 2012. The documentary Blackfish helped exposed people to the reality of what was really going on behind the scenes at SeaWorld, with everything including their trainers to the overall well-being of the orca whales. Not only has Blackfish exposed how SeaWorld has shortened the lifespan of orcas in captivity, but it shined some light on how the orcas were living, how the orca’s behavior changed, how trainers
“Everyone knows what a lobster is. As usual though there’s much more to know than most of us care about – it’s all a matter of what your interests are” (Wallace 460). Novelist and essayist David Foster Wallace was the Roy E. Disney Professor of Creative Writing at Pomona College until he died in 2008. Wallace is best known for writing dazzling journalistic pieces, short stories and novels. In his 2005 article “Consider the Lobster and Other Essays”, Wallace brings it to the attention of people that lobsters are the one creature that are usually cooked while still alive.
and I would go fishing. Catching turtles had become somewhat of a hobby of mine. We would go into the swampy part of the lake and patiently wait for a turtle to emerge from beneath the water so that one of us could scoop it out of the water with a net. Independence Day on the lake was an exciting event; it started off with a parade of boats and jet skis, followed by my friends and family visiting for a hefty cook out, and ended with an overwhelming amount of fireworks being shot all across the
Most people don't know that eating food releases a sensation in the brain, and thats why people are so quick to fall in love with food. A food that has consistently wowed people with its delicate taste is the Maine lobster. Although many people enjoy it as a meal it has continued to cause controversy because of its inhumane way of being cooked. In 2004 David Foster Wallace argued that those who eat lobster overlook that it is a living creature “Consider the Lobster”. Throughout the article Wallace used rhetorical techniques to argue his point.
I gave it a shot, and I could see my lizard going past the bed as the bass kept a steady eye on it. It gave me those three little nibbles they always give when biting down on a lure. When I felt those nibbles, I quickly jerked my rod and set the hook on my first bass of the day. It's a sensation like no other to reel a fish in and have that feeling of excitement, but at the time I was still a little scared of slimy fish. However, there was no dad or friend to help me get the fish off the line, just me and my bare hands as I grabbed the bass’ lip and took out the hook for the first time on my own.
Tahiti Island was an extravagant inflatable island with drink holders, chairs, and a slide. The entire extended Spedale family attended the annual family beach trip, and that day were all there on the ever so coveted Tahiti Island. Claire, Janie, and I decide to snatch some boogie boards and go towards their dad and brother, Michael. They were kayaking along the second sand bar. Invested in a normal
Each animal enclosure needs to be updated to meet the specific necessities of each animal. One risk posed by the current habitat for killer whales, is how long these animals spend at the surface in captivity. The whales can become sun burned and two killer whales have died from being bitten by a mosquito (Lewis, 2013). This is unheard of in the wild because the killer whales are able to swim away from pests such as mosquitos. By having larger and deeper habitats, killer whales could swim away or dive deep to
Orcas’ Behind Closed Tanks Imagine you are a four to eight year old child and you are on vacation with your family entering into a SeaWorld. The excitement has been built up from the commercials that show you these huge and majestic animals that are not like the everyday animal you see on a daily basis.

Amongst the magic, laughter, and adrenaline that you feel you don’t question whether or not these wild animals should be contained like they are.
After the class completes 250 minutes of reading, they remove the card that is magnetically taped and read about clownfish. The card is written as if it was Nemo speaking to the students. Students will learn facts about clownfish and then Nemo will tell students that he will be visiting his friend Dory. After completing 500 minutes of reading, students will learn more about Dory, whom is a blue tang. Dory will speak to students more about her, what she eats, and how she survives in the big open ocean.
Grouper as Food Meanwhile, while some sea creatures are deemed tasty for the grouper, grouper may simply just be as tasty for human beings. That is because its flesh is lean and firm. This characteristic makes the grouper fit for whatever cooking preparation one puts it into, such as fried, broiled, baked, or even grilled. However, the recorded risk of ciguatera poisoning associated with eating grouper is quite high, so some experts advise people to stick to just five pounds of grouper at a time, so that the risk will be minimized.
