They say that the population of Loggerheads is going to far up but just wait. In a few years Loggerhead Turtles can become extinct if we don’t act fast. They are almost endangered but not yet. Many people are killing turtles for money. That is not cool because this may kill the population and do you want to be known as the man who killed the rest of the Loggerhead's.
146 orcas have died in captivity, and 48 of those orcas have died at SeaWorld. The average person believes that orcas, also known as killer whales, are in captivity for their own well being, or to research their species, but that is false. Killer whales are tortured to do our bidding, for other people's entertainment and greediness. The orca trainers limit their food rations so that they become hungry enough to want the “food treat” after they do the tricks that are force upon them. Orcas do not belong in captivity, they belong in the ocean not in a tank.
In the eyes of society and the public, sharks are viewed as ruthless killers Millions upon millions are killed every year, and fear is a major contributor. The reality is that sharks are very complex creatures, and should be treated as such. They are an intricate part of the ocean’s ecosystem and the ecosystem would be completely thrown off without them. We need to realize that these creatures are invaluable, and that we must conserve these animals. If we do not realize this reality, we could lose sharks forever.
I believe keeping orcas in captivities is not humane .To keep orcas in a zoo for display is acceptable, but it is morally unacceptable to use them for entertainment at SeaWorld. I saw the film Blackfish and now, I resent SeaWorld. They care more about profit than animal welfare. Keeping these sentient animals in captivity for an extended period of time causes them severe psychological damage, as evidenced by several killer whale attacks on trainers. SeaWorld Entertainment has had a rough year in the wake of Blackfish, the explosive 2013 documentary about its killer whales, most notably Tilikum, a 12,500-pound male who has fatally attacked two trainers.
Throughout the history of the United States the citizens have always been afraid of Communism. Since the first Red Scare the government has passed laws such as the Espionage or the Sedition Acts to prevent the spread into the United States as much as possible. Ironically While everyone is trying so hard to prevent this they are being greedy and selfish, two emotions that Marxism would help fix. The same problem persists in Jaws directed by Steven Spielberg, after the first shark attack, the police chief wants to close down all the beaches until they know more but the mayor insists they keep the beaches open to increase revenue. The shark represents the stimulant for change of the town because it has grown too selfish and greedy.
What needs to be addressed regarding the release of captive whales is their survivability in the wild6. Many killer whales are bred in captivity now, and thus have depended on humans for the entirety of their lives7. If a captive bred whale were released into the wild, it is likely that he or she would approach humans which could be dangerous for both the human and the whale. Captive bred killer whales would also likely have difficulty hunting, as their food was always provided for them by humans.
Hammerhead sharks are found in ecosystems in temperate and tropical oceans. They live in these types of oceans, because if it was a colder climate they would die from hypothermia and soon the species would become extinct. These sharks like to stay in schools up to 100 in numbers. The reason they stick together is there is more protection in numbers and they can kill bigger prey like big great white sharks. Next Hammerhead sharks gets there name for its flat shaped head and some people think it is useless to the shark.
The Inuit were referred to as "Skraelings" by the Vikings, which roughly translate to “wretches” (Diamond, 261). This term was also referred to the Dorset and Indian natives that the Vikings came in contact with as well. Because of the Vikings poor judgment, they lost all trading and learning opportunities that they could have gained from the Inuit. Whale hunting was a valuable talent that the Inuit had because of the whale’s many benefits. The whale blubber could be used as fuel and lighting, and the meat provided large amounts of food for them to eat (Diamond, 258).
Keltie was the first to be killed by Tilikum's stress and frustration. After Byrne death they closed down SeaLand and put Tilikum for sale. SeaWorld purchased him for their breeding program. The 54% of the Orcas at SeaWorld have Tilikums DNA. After 25 years at SeaWorld Tilikum started to show an abnormal and repetitive behavior where he would chew on metal gates and on the concrete sides of the tanks which has caused his teeth to warn down.
To begin lets remember that this are wild animal that can easily kill a human, they are not safe and the people that work with them shouldn’t discuss about individuals passing away, they where the ones who select to work with the creatures. In captivity they will usually have been separated from their families, often in cruel hunts and some when they are very young. Wild whales can swim up to 100 miles a day, hunting and playing. This important because the mental, emotional and physical stress that a captive whale suffers can weaken their immune system and make them prone to disease. Even though captive whales and dolphins are kept in an environment free of predators, pollution and other threats, they die young.
