I think Killer Whales should not be in captivity because, of the injures they can get in their tanks, how they get stressed out and they are better in the wild. The first reason why I think should not be in captivity is of what happens in their tank. The first piece of evidence from the PETA practical “Aquariums and Marine Parks” is that since the tanks for the orcas are usually small for them, they get insane because of the echolocation they use. This makes me think that since their fin sometimes curves, that they would get injured while swimming. In addition, this might make the whale die faster than what they are supposed to live to.
People shouldn’t kill or disturb Loggerhead Turtles. We should save all the Loggerhead Turtles in the world and then we can have them as pets. One main reason for Loggerhead Turtle death is because of fishermen nets. We can save them by going Scuba diving. We can also save Loggerhead Turtles from reckless drivers by Scuba diving because of the debris.
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
When kept in captivity, these whales have much shorter life spans, there are consequences for not having enough room to swim around, and it creates stress and depression for these whales when they are isolated from their pods. Discontinue going to marine parks, and you will help the orcas kept in captivity be released . There are many other ways to be entertained, and each person that stops going to marine parks, will help the orcas. If enough people cease, the captivity of orcas will rightfully
Although some have been discovered, they are too virulent to use near other species. The newts and other native animals in the lake now have to compete with the crayfish for food, crayfish have even been known to kill newts at times. The park’s aquatic biologist, Mark Buktenica, says "You can hardly turn a rock over without finding a juvenile or adult crayfish." Scientists and researchers are trying to quickly find a way to install barriers that wouldn’t be visible to park visitors, but will keep the crayfish separate from the native
You might be saying, “well they have rehabilitation center inside the parks to help the animals when needed.” This is true, but no matter how much medicine you give them cannot cure their animal nature of wanting to be free in the ocean and stop their sadness of being enclosed. This is why the animals of SeaWorld are suffering by being inside
Southern sea otters were put on the national fur seal treaty for protection and were no longer hunted to the brink of extinction. Their aquarium helps many different species rehabilitate in their aquariums until they are ready to go back into the ocean and fill their niche in the environment. By nursing otters back to health and having them released back into the wild has helped the population stay in the thousands, “they 've slowly expanded their range and grown in number to nearly 3,000. As of 2014.” (Monterey Bay Aquarium: Sea Otter Article). The aquarium while also helping wildlife gain a healthy state on earth, they also of course, run an aquarium for people to view the animals in their
People should be allowed to use Antarctica as it has the largest store of fresh water in the world. This water could be given to countries such as Africa where there is a not a lot of clean and fresh water, thousands and millions of people die every moth due to drinking dirty water so this fresh water could save lives in the future, and this can improve the amount of people
They are wild predators and threatening to some. But we should also understand why some opt to adopt them despite understanding its dangers. By implementing a law, we can make sure owners are responsible for it and thus provide adequate care for their own pets. We can make sure neighbors feel comfortable and accept these “special” friends. Last but not the least, we can make sure the animal is safe and free from suffocating cages and insufficient food.
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.
They do not seize healthy animals for captivity. Many people will argue that SeaWorld trainers are performers rather than biologists, when in reality, they must now pass a certain amount of tests and examinations before coming in contact with any animal. They also only care about the fact that SeaWorld keep Orcas in captivity, but will have no problem with a zoo. This is hypocritical and unfair, as, just like zoos, SeaWorld contribute
This is a problem because sometimes the fish just sits and waste and sometimes they can have fish for a party not all the fish could be eaten so sometimes people give food away to others and maybe they won’t eat it and it goes to waste we should only take what we need and no more or one day we won’t have any fish and we will have to live without it and we are going to wish we never took so much and just let it go to waste. So that is what I think about over fishing in Hawaii and why I think it is a major problem and how I believe we can prevent all our fish being taken before it is too late, so now I hope we can all come together as an island and work together a keep our fish population going up and not down and I think we can do it we just need to work together and take care of our
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
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.
Hannah Ton Mrs. Braun Honors American Literature 1 November 2015 SeaWorld Orca Breeding Should Not Be Continued When Dr. Heather Rally, a veterinarian who specializes with marine mammals, visited SeaWorld, she witnessed an orca with a severely collapsed fin and asked an “educational” guide why its fin was bent. The guide replied that it was a genetic trait just like curly or straight hair. However, Rally knows the truth, scientific evidence suggests that the high rate of dorsal fin collapse in captive orcas is due to conditions of captivity. These include spending an abnormally long time at the surface in direct sunlight and continuously swimming in tight circles. Recently, a law was passed by the Coastal Commission to allow SeaWorld to expand
