In the film Blackfish by Gabriela Cowperthwaite, the scene in which Seaworld trainer Kenneth Peters, almost died when he was repeatedly pulled and dragged under the water by the killer whale kasatka, was by the most breathtaking and disturbing footage presented throughout the film. Based on this scene, the director is arguing that the captivity of Killer whales is inhumane, because the emotions humans contain and express are equivalent or inferior to those of animals, which can lead to extreme mental instability. Similarly Mark twain also touches upon the ideas of animals being equal or superior towards humans in “The Lowest Animal”. Furthermore, Twain brilliantly and satirically describes the animal kingdom and the placement of humans on it. He argues that Animals are the lower species when he states that “ the higher animals have no religion.
There is no better way of explaining it, Peterson and Vocano makes the viewer feel like they are experiencing everything with the crew of the U-96. It impossible to watch without empathizing with the men on board. The almost documentary-like shooting of the film is augmented by the use of cinematic audio. The sounds of the ocean underwater, the haunting sounds of the sonar, the sound of steel crushing and bolts bursting from the water pressure, are only a few examples of sound utilized in Das Boot that put the viewer as close as they can get to naval warfare without actually being involved in it. A supposedly legendary captain by the name of Thomsen remarks in the beginning of the film that the young enlisted recruits have the "belief in our Fuhrer in their eyes” and then says "they will know in time."
The next time you go to the beach, don’t go too far into the ocean. If you see a curved fin, you’ll know that it’s a shark. But not all sharks are scary and dangerous. In fact, only 4 types of sharks are known to attack humans. But, they all have something in common, in that they are all very interesting.
Octopuses In the ocean they 're is a multitude of different species of marine life. These differnet species range from simple plankton all the way up to sharks. Although the common perseption that sharks are at the top of the food chain there is a fierce competitor with the sharks and that would be the octopus. The octopuse has a variety of characteristics that are all commonly known , for example it is common knowledge that octopuses are able to produce and thick black ink that they can use to blind predators who try to attack them. Because of people thinking that the octopuse is a passive marine life creature due to its constant running the octopus is able to use the purpose of all 8 of its legs and other unique traits to either confuse trap or just over power its prey.
Also, it was evaluated the time of the day when accidents occur. The lambent light of the wind effect on the surface and possibly greater turbidity might vaguely the view taking into consideration when humans were attacked. There was studying the feeding habits of sharks and the time the attacks occur. Measure the deepest of water in which the incidents occurred (8 inches to waist deep) The incident involved persons who were paddling, and because of the conditions of light and wind, the shark maybe did not detect the target which was out of water. Finally, it was possible to examine that the shark confounded for a fish a man 's foot or calf.
Have you ever been stuck 47 Meters Down on the ocean floor with hungry sharks swarming around you? I’m sure that most people haven’t but in this movie that I am reviewing that is what happens. 47 Meters Down is a good movie and I would suggest watching it. This is a movie for people who enjoy thrillers and shark movies. I would rank this movie as one of the best thrillers that I have watched.
Dolphins are wild creatures of the sea, intelligent animals that shouldn 't be living in captivity. Captivity isn’t their regular habitat, their normal life is chasing fish on the sea. We capture them to A life in a small tank which is not healthy for dolphins. They have been slaughtered on the coast of Japan, Taiji. So after seeing what conditions some dolphins are capture and kill by Japanese fishermen on The Cove, it made me question the situations of all the dolphins that we currently saw in dolphinarium making acrobatics in captivity because money can buy everything but happiness and freedom.
You can catch largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, yellow bass, rock bass, bass etc. In my opinion bass aren’t that fun to catch. Although bass can be really big monsters. The give a little fight but not a huge fight. Next up is the marvelous muskies.
What is shark finning you inquire? Shark finning is the evacuation of a shark 's balance then the remaining parts being tossed over the edge alive. The shark is frequently still alive when it is tossed into the water, finless. They can 't swim without balances thus they will sink to the sea depths to be eaten alive by other fish. Finning of sharks happens adrift as it is just the blades they require, shark meat is a low esteem and is unneeded.
A shark net is a submerged net placed around beaches to reduce sharks attacks. on swimmers It does not always stop shark attacks, but it does help reduce them. A shark net is normally about 6m tall and 200m wide and floats below the surface of the water. They stop and capture the sharks in the net. I believe that we should use shark nets more, because it keeps people safe and also keeps the sharks away from the swimming beaches.
In 2013, a documentary called Blackfish was released to the public. This film was produced, written, and directed by a lady named Gabriela Cowperthwaite, as a way to show the world how poorly whales are treated and why they do not belong in captivity. Blackfish also shows how little people really know about the beautiful and highly intelligent orca whale itself. Her film was seen by many, and touched the hearts of a lot people, taking the debate of the topic to a higher level. The movie hits on a lot of main issues about captivity, told by reliable people, along with proven statistics to go along with them.
They just seem to be, especially with horror music. People shouldn’t even be afraid of them, sharks are actually very interesting. The only attack people for protection. From all the horrible things we do to them. Eat, use skin for leather, liver oil as medicine, teeth for jewelry, sports, or accidentally trap them.
How is this process allowed or encouraged at SeaWorld when they are kept in a concrete pool? Each animal enclosure needs to be updated to meet the specific necessities of each animal. One risk posed by the current habitat for killer whales, is how long these animals spend at the surface in captivity. The whales can become sun burned and two killer whales have died from being bitten by a mosquito (Lewis, 2013). This is unheard of in the wild because the killer whales are able to swim away from pests such as mosquitos.
The tongue biters have seven legs, with claws on each one that makes them all the more strong and sharp. This species lives wide-range from seaweed, to trenches and even in back gardens. I learned that the job of this insect is to latch onto a host and crush and tear at their flesh which over time eventually kills that host. Tammy Horton explains that when a marine Biologist finds a species like this it is a joy feeling because they are so rare. As oppose to a couple buying fish to eat and coming home finding a gross parasite latched to the fish’s tongue isn’t the best site to see and usually grosses most people out.
