In the film Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, the scene in which Seaworld trainer Kenneth Peters, almost died when he was repeatedly pulled and dragged under the water by the killer whale kasatka, was by the most breathtaking and disturbing footage presented throughout the film. Based on this scene, the director is arguing that the captivity of Killer whales is inhumane, because the emotions humans contain and express are equivalent or inferior to those of animals, which can lead to extreme mental instability. Similarly Mark twain also touches upon the ideas of animals being equal or superior towards humans in “The Lowest Animal”. Furthermore, Twain brilliantly and satirically describes the animal kingdom and the placement of humans on it. He argues that Animals are the lower species when he states that “ the higher animals have no religion.

Beaches that were once a paradise are now a destination no man wants to visit. Islands that are home to beautiful creatures are being forgotten and the economy of that community is being destroyed due to all the trash being transported via ocean waves. Elle Hunter a writer for The Guardian wrote a newspaper article about Henderson Island, which is a small abandoned island in the eastern South Pacific Ocean that could have been a beautiful tourist destination or a useful land to live in but instead it is destroyed due to the trash created by populate cities being moved by ocean waves into the shorelines of Henderson Island. Hunter explains that Henderson Island has “the highest density of anthropogenic debris recorded anywhere in the world, with 99.8% of the pollution plastic” and can soon increase more if the ocean keeps depositing trash into its shoreline(Hunter). If all the trash being produced would be deposited to its correct location, means that no trash would be able to reach the ocean or if more people recycle, Henderson Island might have a chance to recover and become a beautiful destination to live in or visit.
Surfmen are the embodiment of the Coast Guard’s 169-year lifesaving heritage. When the pressure drops and the air is thick with salt, an art form is passed down to a new generation on the heaving decks of Motor Lifeboats. The veteran Surfman regales eager greenhorns with tales of courage and tragedy. Despite the marvel and glory inherent in the title “Surfman”, it is a constant challenge to fill these historic billets, certify new Surfmen, and provide opportunities to meet career milestones. Initiatives implemented to create a sustainable pool of Surfman routinely fail, resulting in billet gaps, fatigue, and low job satisfaction.

She tried to think off ways to rework her year with fins into a plausible story. “I explored everywhere that I could, large kingdoms and little hamlets. I mostly stayed by the coast if I could,” Emma hoped that her answer would satisfy him, “Tell me about your year, taking the high seas into the palm of your hand.” Hook launched into a tale about how he and his crew narrowly avoided capture by a king 's naval ship, taking with them more riches than they even knew what to do with.
