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.
Finning of sharks happens adrift as it is just the blades they require, shark meat is a low esteem and is unneeded. Any shark will be taken regardless of what its age, species or size. Shark experts trust 100 million sharks are slaughtered every year only for their blades. There are various effects on shark finning. The waste and devastation of shark populace everywhere throughout the world.
The Taiji fishermen on the other hand unnecessarily slay thousands of dolphins by bombarding them with agonizingly loud noises. These sounds panic the adults and babies alike and forces them to be driven to the shore where they are promptly slaughtered. Dolphins have a much higher intelligence than other whales and should not be subjected to
When we went to catch them there shells would rip through the nets. Most people would say it 's all in our heads and to leave it alone buts its a serious issue. Last but not least, it’s hard to get rid of these species because they 've been here for so long they multiplied scenes then. In conclusion to, this is why i think zebra mussels are the worst invader species.
Luci had heard on the news that there had been an increase of illegal shark fishing in his area. He felt himself being dragged up to the surface in this harsh net. Suddenly, everything in his beady eyes went dark. He could have sworn he felt the water turn frigid and black clouds form in the sky above him. He sensed the net starting to cut through his skin, and he grimaced from the pain.
Haline Penaloza April 28, 2016 Hello humans, I’m a non-threatening hammerhead shark writing this letter for you humans. There are many things wrong in this world and one of the biggest issues would be the killing of my kind. Around 100 million of the shark species are killed each year and very well be gone in the next decades. We are getting killed by greed of people while our existence plays a huge role in the ocean ecosystem. We are really amazing creatures.
According to the article, Shark populations healthy but still at risk, study finds, by Timothy Hurley, overfishing is the main cause of the population declining. Numerous sharks have been caught and thrown back after their fins have been cut off, the process is known as finning. For this reason, fins are used for soup, a delicacy known as shark fin soup. The dish supposedly offers various benefits to our bodies. However there is no scientific fact to support it.
These things really are happening in the world, its called ocean pollution. Because of this marine life is constantly dying, innocent fish are mistaking plastic for food and becoming sick, and eventually all that plastic will kill everything beautiful in the ocean . Ocean pollution does not only kill marine life, but it is also is killing birds and coral reefs. Would you like
My first question is if erosion is the biggest problem to ecosystems. I learned that (at least for Hurricane Matthew) erosion was one of the main problems. Another question I have is whether deep ocean creatures are affected by hurricanes. Deep sea creatures that are territorial or are slow-swimmers are guaranteed to be dead but some creatures can swim away. The final question I have is: How are deep sea creatures affected by hurricanes?
They are actually close to extinction. This is because people are going deep-ocean trawling. This means that a net is being drug along the ocean floor, sadly the blobfish gets scooped up as well, and even though it is often tossed back into the ocean, by then it is already too late. In 2006, nature conservationists from all over the world gathered to propose the restriction of bottom trawling on the high seas, but were unable to reach an agreement, leaving the fate of the helpless blobfish greatly uncertain, especially since the deep trawling fishing fleets of Australia and New Zealand are very active, and the blobfish isn’t found anywhere else in the world. The blobfish has become famous because it has been called “cosmetically challenged”.
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.
They use footage from different sources, showing trainers in the pool with the orcas and on the background a 911 call plays while these scenes are shown. Here Blackfish is raising the audience’s tension to believe that was the moment of that trainer’s demise. Various former SeaWorld trainers are then interviewed, and say the incidents with the trainers happened due to the aggressive behavior of the whales trying to harm the trainers. Dr. Dave Duffus also states that these attacks were a cause of the rigorous training the whales go through, making them aggressive towards the trainers. On SeaWorld’s response they state that these events were accidents, and that the cause of death was not due to the whales, but because of the trainers’ negligence.
They knew Tilikum was dangerous because in his profile information it states, “Sometimes lunging toward control trainer” 70 plus killer whale trainer accidents but no one talks about them. Only why the trainers have close relationships with the whales because they are feeding them fish. All whales in captivity are traumatized. (Blackfish) The campaign is called “Meet the Animals” that involves introducing their
Tilikum was a killer whale in every definition to the word. According to the documentary Tilikum was a very depressed killer whale. While at sealand of the pacific Tilikum grew very aggressive due to horrible living conditions. Tilikum grew very aggressive due to horrible living conditions. Tilikum was confined to a twenty by thirty foot tanked at night.
There have been multiple incidents at SeaWorld when killer whales have attacked people. The most popular killer whale attack is the death of Dawn Brancheau by Tilikum, the largest male orca captive at SeaWorld Orlando. This was just one out of three deaths that Tilikum was involved in. He also played a part in the deaths of trainer, Keltie Lee Byrne, and park visitor Daniel Dukes. An autopsy completed by Dr. Joshua Stephany, a medical examiner, determined the injuries Brancheau had sustained after Tilikum had pulled her into the pool.
