Entertainment, Profit, and Educational Effects of Seaworld Although, as “Blackfish” states, the way that Seaworld is imprisoning orcas to use for entertainment and profit is harmful, studying the orcas for education is a reasonable activity, but only in their natural habitat. The organization, Seaworld, is holding and training whales to put on shows for the entertainment of their guests and the profit for themselves. Seaworld holding orcas is harmful to both the trainers and the whales in many ways. They also tend to use them for the education of and advancement for society. However, much of this studying could be studied in the wild.
In addition, this might make the whale die faster than what they are supposed to live to. Other people might say it might non’t affect it but I think they might die faster. The second piece of evidence from article “Should Orca Shows Be Banned?” is who they live with says Naomi Rose, a marine mammal scientist in Washington D.C. “They are living with what are essentially strangers,”says Rose. I wonder when they are together in captivity, that they might attack each other. In addition to my thinking they just ignore them which makes them have different
They also found that it was not just the largest whales that grew over time; the smallest whales found today are larger than the smallest extinct species. Further analysis revealed that the baleen whales had been diversifying in size for 30 million years; this began to take place between 4.5 million and a few hundred thousand years ago. The recent timing rules out the possibility that the emergence of gigantism was caused by the evolution of bulk filter feeding, large predators like giant sharks and falling global ocean temperatures. Slater says that the recent onset of glaciation in the Northern Hemisphere caused the evolution of gigantism in baleen whales. While the scenario for one of the last stages in the evolution of size of baleen whales is convincing, Olivier Lambert, a paleontologist from the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Science, says that it was likely other factors such as the evolution of large predators and other climatic events which played a role in the development of the animals ' size.
For years there has been a debate on who is the top predator in the ocean. Of course the shark is an easy choice but recently in the last couple years the killer whale has emerged as a challenge towards the Great White. The Killer whale is a worthy opponent towards the great white do to its bigger size and better and smarter hunting techniques. As history has shown great whites as dominant and scary they have been to the ocean as the apex predator they have been known to be the killer whales prey. When killer whales have attacked sharks they have turned the sharks upside down.
Tail docking should be illegal because it detracts from the dogs natural look, upsets the pet, and is just unnecessary. One of the many reasons that tail docking should not be allowed is because it detracts from the animal's natural look. It may be cute, but if dogs are born and bred with long tails, they should live out their life with the tail they were born with. Some dog breeds have naturally shorter tails. There is absolutely no reason to make it any shorter than
To begin with, I am against whale captivity. I will be telling you three thing and then how I feel about them. So I hope you are ready to listen. LET 'S GO!!!! So we all know or have heard of seaworld, but when we go there and have fun we never think about how harmful it is to the killer whales and their trainers working with them.
In Orlando, Florida yet another event occurred producing the same results, although the common fact remains killer whales were in captivity when these human being were killed. The whales most likely thought these women were fish not people. It is a common misconception of natural instinct and imaginative onlookers; these whales are not people they are wild marine life. It is no secret that killer whales have a bad reputation, however what earned the reputation was sheer unintentional killings. Orinus Orcas are wild marine life that should not be prosecuted like human beings, and the name “Killer Whales” is the result of false
Likewise, banning this hunt would eliminate the traditional ways of life set hundreds of years back to the rural inhabitants. For them , this hunt is a vital way to endure survival physically and economically. Finally, seal hunting is done in a humane, regulated manner despite much of the negative influence shown to mislead the public about this hunt. Many are not aware, but seals are overpopulated enough already. The Canadian Seal Hunt is not only a blessing in disguise but a way to enable balance in the marine ecosystem.
Free the Orcas Orcas are majestic, beautiful creatures who do not deserve to be confined to tanks that to humans are like bathtubs. The reason orcas are called killer whales is because they are not animals to be messed with. There should be no human interaction that will cause and orca to feel stressed or threatened. Just like humans, orcas have the ability to feel pain when they are separated from their families. Throughout the years aquatic centers have used orcas as entertainment, but in reality orca captivity has taken a toll on the mental and physical health of these animals as well as endangering their human trainers.
Banning pit bulls will not change an animal’s natural instinct and make people safer. When news anchors report on a story involving a dog attack, they automatically assume that if the dog attacked, it must be a pitbull.This isn’t fair to this breed. They have earned an unfair reputation. When they attack, the do so because
The whales, unable to handle the separation lash out while in captivity. Orcas should not live separated from the original pods, due to the reaction of captivity causing countless mental issues in the whales. If the whale hunters would only capture the sick whales, the orcas could learn how to thrive in the natural ocean life without fear of getting
For example, the film mainly focuses on a giant whale named Tilikum and where he started, his events, where he moved, to and where he was last when the film was made. It also starts with the first sea-parks and how they grew into bigger ones. It talks about how the trainers are hired, where they come from, and how they are trained. Another thing they go over is the laws of whale capturing
The overpopulation of Pollock is creating an environment with no sustainable food source for the sea lions. Commercial fishing would also provide an opportunity to fish in a way that is co-beneficial to the environment, rather than carelessly overfishing. In order for this plan to be successful, close numbers of Pollock, herring, and Western stock sea lions will have to be observed and recorded. If immediate action is taken, the sea lion population could rebound within a few generations. The stakeholders in this issue are environmental groups, such as Greenpeace, who firstly advocated for the ban on commercially fishing Pollock in Alaska, as well as the Federal government, who passed the legislature.
Graph A represents recordings of a transient killer whale, whereas Graph B represents recordings of a resident killer whale. Both graphs show the changes in each whale type; one documents a drastic change over the course of four hours, while the other one—over the same amount of time—shows a more consistent pattern. A transient killer whale is represented in the first graph because, although a majority of the data shows the orca keeping to the higher points of the ocean, there are still points in which the orca dives to the bottom depth of the ocean, which would make sense due to the fact that this particular type of orca is known for preying on marine mammals. Based on the information in the chart, it could easily be assumed that they dwell closer to the top of the water, but when they are ready to feed, they dive to the
Just last month California signed the Orca Protection and Safety Act that will hopefully become the first of many pieces of legislation coming to support the orca population. This legislation bans the breeding of killer whales, as well as keeping them in captivity for the purpose of entertainment. This issue has been in the public eye for many years but really came more to the forefront in 2013 when the documentary "Blackfish" was released. This documentary re-started the conversation about keeping killer orca whales in captivity. It highlighted the dilemma on multiple different levels including the emotional and sympathetic side of the issue, the ethics of keeping these animals in captivity as well as the scientific logic against this practice.
