Kitson Jazynka’s purpose in writing Saving the sea otters is just part of her normal day at work is to recount the fact that saving underwater animals are important. Underwater sea animals are dying faster and going extinct,they need our help. Anything that can affect the otters can affect us humans as well and we can help eachother out with this fact. We think that it is important to discover the remains of the dead sea animal, because we care and want to reveal a bit more maybe even discover a new species. Lastly we need them because a species can tell us a lot of information.
Humans were not around at the time the monk seals arrived, and the monk seals are more commonly found in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands that are less inhibited by people compared to the Main Hawaiian Islands with a larger human population (Lowry et al, 2011). The Hawaiian monk seal population has been in a rise and fall ever since the discovery of the monk seals by a Russian explorer in 1805. Due to its discovery, the monk seal population virtually died out by the mid 1800’s due to the commercial seal hunting and being killed for food by sailors and whalers (Lowry et al, 2011). Until the mid 1900’s, the seals were never seen and thought to be extinct because they were never seen by hunters or sailors, but the first beach count survey was taken in 1958, showing a slight recovery (Schultz et al, 2010). Another decline was also seen during the 1960’s-1970’s that showed a 75% decrease in number of monk seals seen on the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands (Gilmartin et al,
Do you remember that day that you and your family took a trip to that one park? That one that you got to see many different types of sea animals, dolphins putting on shows, and getting to even interact with the sea animals in a great learning experience. That park is SeaWorld. When you were there, you might have not noticed the stuff that was happening behind the scenes. Lately, the animals have been very sad and not living healthy lives.
River Otter Though not commonly observed in the wild, the river otter, Lutra canadensis, is a fairly familiar animal to most people. Its original range covered most of North America. It is one of the larger of the weasel tribe, its recorded weights running over twenty pounds, though I do not have at hand weights of the large Alaskan sub¬species. The otter is agile, fluid in its movements as the water that is its favorite element.
In order for SeaWorld to have a business, they of course would need animals. SeaWorld has been proven to have kidnapped their orcas from the ocean. In just 1970, over 90 orcas were kidnapped from the ocean. SeaWorld would have a crew herd orcas into areas where they couldn’t escape, and capture them. They would specifically hunt for the mother orcas, because they would be with their children.
The monk seals are a rare tropical animal that lives on the Caribbean and the Hawaiian Islands. Monk seals live in warm waters and spend about two-thirds of their time at sea. However, they also spend time on land as they breed and carry-out their “pups.” Coral reefs provide the seal as a great habitat for them to dive, swim, and for food such as fish. It may seem that monk seals spend most of their time at sea, but they also love to rest on shore on the beaches.
Oysters filter out the water and purify it. Throughout the Bay there have been oyster farms that are protected by the county to help filter the water. Keeping these vital creatures safe could be the key to saving the Bay. If we work together, slowly, Chesapeake Bay could return to a clean and
To this day, zoos and aquariums are not banned, but that has not stopped people from fighting for the freedom and rights of animals. The debate between whether zoos and aquariums should banned or not has become an ongoing issue and still is today. Although zoos and aquariums do contribute to the economy, they should be banned because animals in captivity suffer from starvation and health issues, often die prematurely, and can easily cause harm to people due to be kept in confined areas. Many people argue that zoos and aquariums are beneficial because they contribute a great amount of income to the economy. According to the “Zoo and Aquarium Statistics” by aza.org, the statistics state, “Accredited zoos and aquarium contributed more than $22.5 billion to U.S. economy in 2016”
To where have all the black-footed ferrets disappeared? The black-footed ferrets have been endangered since 1967 in the southwestern corner of North Dakota due to loss of habitat and a depletion of their prime food source. First of all, the prairie dogs and the other animals that lived in their homes were the ferrets prime source of food. Secondly, the ferrets, like many other animals, used the prairie dogs’ burrows as homes.
Being held captive leads animals to have abnormal behaviors that unfortunately can lead to the deaths of people. Although zoos and sea-parks claim they are all about educating the public and conservation we know its
The aquarium is a place to show your kid the wonders of the sea. If we give animal rights they would take the fish and put them back in the ocean. Blackfish is documentary on how we treat killer whales in captivity and we take care of them shows why they might send them back in the wild to die. The memories of them will die out since their will be no generation of it. It will be in history books the animals of zoos and aquariums will be set free due to the new animal bill of rights.
SeaWorld has been in the spotlight for several years now. Whether it is negative or positive publicity, someone is talking about SeaWorld; from the new animal births at their facility, killer whales attacking their trainer and the sudden unexplainable deaths of many of their animals. In 2013 the documentary “Blackfish” explained how SeaWorld’s animals and staff are really treated. Since the release of Blackfish, SeaWorld’s image and attendance has gone down the drain. SeaWorld San Diego’s attendance is down 12% and SeaWorld Orlando is down 8% (Weisberg, 2015).
