Imagine you are stuck in a jail cell, blindfolded. You are forced to do ever anyone says, and you do tricks for other amusement. That’s how a whale in captivity feels all the time. Whales shouldn’t be held captive because whales are taken from their families, whales are forced to do shows, and most importantly whales have to live in to small tanks which can be harmful to the whale. One thing Seaworld isn’t telling us is that they take whales from their families in the wild.
The main purpose of Blackfish is to answer why a captured whale would become so aggressive and turn on its trainers. To answer this Cowperthwaite frames the documentary around Tilikum by interviewing experts in the field such as Lori Marino (Director of Science with Non-human Rights Program), and former SeaWorld trainers, such as John Hardgrove who recall capturing young orca 's, like Tilikum, away from their families and placing them into solitary confinement. One of the most emotionally gripping parts of the film is a heartbreaking
In Life of Pi, Pi is the protagonist of the story. Pi is trapped on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific with four animals. They kill each other in order to stay alive. On the lifeboat, they have no food and water, so they are hungry and thirsty. Orange juice is a peaceful orangutan, but she becomes violent when facing the hyena.
It is true that sharks are one of the animal kingdom’s most vicious predators; however, it is important to note that humans were not naturally included to the sharks’ list of preys. Encounters between sharks and humans only became disastrous when the latter had trespassed and disturbed its domain so as a result, the sharks perceive humans as a threat to them or to their pups if they are nursing. In some ways, “Jaws” provided justification for humans to slaughter sharks, henceforth; it had received some negative reviews from other spectators and critics. Unfortunately, the number of sharks in the wild is decreasing globally. The movie had encouraged resorts owner near the beaches to show the brutality of the shark instead of imposing the advocacies that would protect these sea creatures such as limiting the passage of people where sharks were known to thrive.
The pain he is feeling is killing Santiago, which is an internal feeling but the creatures he is killing keeps him and many others alive causing an external feeling or condition. Hemingway portrays the old fisherman as the crucified saint when the sharks arrive to strip away the marlin. When Santiago uses the harpoon, the shot is similar to the sound of the nails being driven into the hands of Christ. Moreover, the marlin creates a feeling of redemption to the successful fisherman, ending his unlucky streak of eighty-four
The vivid thought of dreams illustrates Amir’s outlook on personal issues. When Amir witnessed Hassan get raped, he felt guilty for not helping, and his guilt grew on him. In correspondence with the haunting experience, Hassan had a dream of himself and Amir in Ghargha Lake. No one swims in the lake because a monster is said to be in the lake. Amir jumps into the water and Hassan follows; “”But no one was swimming because they said a monster had come to the lake.
After the expository phase of both the movie and novel, the shark attacks its first victim--a drunk woman named Crissy. The kill set off a bloodlust instinct in the shark that made it hungry for more, and that there is more food for him at this beach; This is why it keeps coming back, because normally sharks to not attack humans unless they are in distress. Unfortunately for the Crissy, she was swimming in an unconventional way which made her appear to the shark as prey. Throughout the rest of both the story and novel the shark proves as a nuisance to the mayor, Chief Brody, and the people of the town. After the death of the guy in the pond, and near death experience of his child, Brody seems to realize that this is a pressing issue that needs to be resolved now.
Jaws (Spielberg, 1975) follows the police chief Brody (Rob Schneider), along with oceanographer Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) and shark hunter Quint (Robert Shaw), in their attempt to protect the town of Amity against a Great White shark that is terrorising beachgoers. It was adapted from Peter Benchley’s 1974 novel of the same name. The production of Jaws went past schedule and over budget, and there were malfunctions with the prosthetic sharks that were intended to be used in the film. As a result of this, Spielberg decided to only suggest the appearance of the shark as often as possible, as opposed to showing the prosthetic body during all attacks. This sparing use of the prosthetics, and primary focus instead on creating suspense and dread
Zoos generally hold a variety of animals for public display, also known as “zoological parks.” On the other hand, aquariums and marine mammal parks also known as “sea-parks,” hold fish and amphibians. These parks that exhibit animals are inhumane and barbaric. Vulnerable creatures are being abused daily and few seem to care about this issue because it is an issue in which animals cannot advocate for themselves. Zoos and sea-parks should be banned and closed for good because they force animals to live in tiny enclosures, which consequently leads to abnormal behavior in most animals. As a matter of fact, zoos and sea-parks do not serve as conservation and education as they solemnly swear they do.

Everything about placing orcas in captivity is wrong, and it all starts at the capturing of the whales. Its not just the fact that people are taking them from their natural environment, but it 's how the people do it. Pods are located and then hunted down in a quite aggressive manner. Pods are chased into coves with bombs, aircraft, and boats until captured in a corral made of net. One by one, the babies, who are supposed to stay with their mother their entire life, are picked out and kidnaped from the pod.
Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful. Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine.
Even though Sea World has stopped all their breeding programs, and will not be acquiring any new orcas, the question is what will become of the orcas that are currently living at these marine parks. Many may say the right answer is to set these animals free into the wild and completely end this issue. But the problem with this is that these animals have lived in, and for many of them grown up in, a captive environment so they would likely not thrive or even survive in the wild. So if we are now taking such as strong voice for these animals why are we letting those that are in captivity remain in this
An autopsy completed by Dr. Joshua Stephany, a medical examiner, determined the injuries Brancheau had sustained after Tilikum had pulled her into the pool. When he was shaking her violently in his mouth in front of a crowd of viewers, her jaw, part of her vertebra, and several ribs were fractured., her left elbow and knee were dislocated. According to the autopsy, the orca was so violent that a portion of her scalp was “forcibly torn from the head” before she died of blunt force trauma to the head, neck and torso, and drowning when the Tilikum yanked her into SeaWorld 's pool Feb. 24, 2010. She had a “complete avulsion of the upper left extremity,” in other words — he tore her arm off. Are a few moments of entertainment really worth all this
This film about these extremely diverse mammals shows true footage of the whales and what they are capable of in captivity. It also talks about a lot of wrongs that are done to the whales in captivity by people who were there and done it or witnessed it themselves. The film gives out a lot of good information and statistics that have been proven by others as well. Because this source focuses on captivity and the poor treatment of whales, as will my paper, It will come to great use when the time comes to use
