Therefore, if release is not possible, it is tempting say that the killer whales remaining in captivity should be protected and put in better tanks and that they should not be forced to perform. This would still, however, violate the five freedoms under the animal welfare act. Thus, the only other option when release is not possible, is humane euthanasia. This would clearly not go well with the public, as they would just see the overriding organization that put the act into motion as heartless murderers, when in reality, they would be trying to do what is best for the killer whales. Furthermore, I feel that an animal welfare act should be declared to prevent further capture of killer
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
Freeing Willy: A Rhetorical Analysis on Blackfish the Documentary The documentary film Blackfish, by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, is a daring venture, which claims that orcas in captivity become dangerous to human beings, as well as to other orcas. Cowperthwaite points to SeaWorld, in particular, since this world-renowned tourist attraction has had many examples that support her claim. In producing this film, Cowperthwaite hopes to bring about an end to SeaWorld’s practice of using killer whales as performance animals since the limited environment is ultimately doing more harm than good for both the whales and their trainers. The purpose of this rhetorical analysis will be to determine whether Blackfish offers a compelling argument. To begin with,
Arguing from this perspective, I believe that, had the paddlers not motivated Luna’s haphazard swimming behavior, the captors’ efforts of capturing Luna would not have been thwarted. In that case, the process of relocating him to his original habitat where he had been alienated from his orca family for unknown reasons would have been successful, and Luna would not have been killed. Probably Luna would still be alive. Even so, I still sustain that humans are not to blame entirely for Luna’s ill-fated demise. Apparently, CBC News confirms my belief by declaring that it is confirmed that about 60% of whales die from interactions with humans (para.
The Whaling Ban Issue Globalization University of The People In order to preserve their cultural activities the Norwegian and Japanese people are opposing to the whaling ban which has been issued. Some villages’ main income was based on whale hunting and the ban is making the life of locals difficult. From a cultural activity that finds most of the world opposite, the people of these areas were providing for their families depending on the particular hunt. After pausing for a second on the dilemma; Norwegian and Japanese peoples’ income, or living whales? I would say that I definitely disagree with the position on permitting the hunting of non-endangered species of whales as a cultural exemption.
Another instance was when he asserts that the "the whirling turbines could every year kill thousands of migrating songbirds and sea ducks” which has the dual purpose of refuting Broadhurst’s point that the wind farm will not kill any bird and really persuades the reader that the wind farm is detrimental if it will cause the death of wildlife. In addition to imagery, Kennedy also employs repetition of the words us and we in order to bring a sense of alliance against the wind farm, and to include himself as well. A final point is that Kennedy utilizes powerful anaphora. For example, he asserts “I wouldn't build… Nor would I build…”, which show that he is building up his ideas and showing the audience what he believes in and criticizing his critics and presenting the extent of his knowledge of wind farms . Another example of anaphora in which a condemnatory tone is used is when “I (he) invite (invites) these critics… I (he) urge (urges) them to…”
The Japanese Sea lion in the 70s, and The Baiji Chinese River Dolphin in 2006 have been victim to our careless actions. Let’s not make sharks the next. World leaders, I am not here to just tell you about the demise of sharks, but to ask you to take action to halt their demise because this problem is on all our hands. As we speak ships are carrying fins to destinations across the world to your country. Currently, there is no international law to prohibit the selling of shark fins.
Besides Tilikum recently on September 20th, 2015 on of San Diegos Orcas named "Nakai" hit his face with a portion of the pool during show time despite the whales injury they kept the show running. Later on they found a piece of his chin at the bottom of the pool. Another thing that I noticed is that SeaWorld has lied to us and there are also some interesting thing we did not know about SeaWorld; For starters When the orcas get sunburn they cover it with Black Zinc Oxide, Some of SeaWorld orcas where kidnapped but the once that were not captured they were killed, The trainers at SeaWorld are not biologist but performers, The Orcas in captivity don't live has long as they are supposed to and the collapse dorsal fin is not normal. SeaWorld say they prioritize there
In particular, the Planet Earth series provided me with stunning cinematography. The documentary Blackfish made me realize that perhaps animals should not be kept in captivity. I realize that perhaps in some instances (in terms of conservation) it is necessary, but the whales at seaworld should be in the ocean. Last year, I watched the documentary, Merchants of Doubt. Prior to watching this film, I did not understand how people, including my mom, could dispute climate change.
However, this is certainly one issue where world opinion is certainly overwhelmingly supportive of the conservation of whales. It could even be argued that certain aspects of traditional Japanese culture is supportive of Whale conservation as according to tradition Whales are deemed to be “gods of the sea”. To in that respect a modernization of Japanese culture moving away from Whaling altogether could be argued as having minimal culture impact. Therefore, the Whaling argument on both sides is certainly be a divisive topic for the foreseeable future. Word count
The bull whale’s suicide was a sign for us to remember our culture. I felt worried about the future of my people since, the ancient whale meant everything to us. If he dies, we die and if he lived we live. He is our strength. If we are able to return it back it will proof that the oneness is still with us and if not, it means we became weak.
III. Though whaling has been generally globally banned, some countries such as Japan and Norway still whale for scientific purposes. Do you think this is necessary? Do you think nature advocates such as the International Whaling Commission should allow this? Why or why
