Mass dolphin murder is one of the many issues that are happening in our world today in the 21st century. The Documentary Called “The Cove” would make the viewers open their eyes of what this world actually is and the secret Taiji, Japan is trying to keep. This situation would show us why these activists struggle so hard to stop this social issue. One of the reasons being, the mass murder by the fishermen, and the captivity of the dolphins by the Sea World’s organization. Dolphin meat is sold illegally and people are buying it, unaware of the health risks.
Throughout the history of the United States the citizens have always been afraid of Communism. Since the first Red Scare the government has passed laws such as the Espionage or the Sedition Acts to prevent the spread into the United States as much as possible. Ironically While everyone is trying so hard to prevent this they are being greedy and selfish, two emotions that Marxism would help fix. The same problem persists in Jaws directed by Steven Spielberg, after the first shark attack, the police chief wants to close down all the beaches until they know more but the mayor insists they keep the beaches open to increase revenue. The shark represents the stimulant for change of the town because it has grown too selfish and greedy.
A killer whale named Tilikum was placed in Sealand and he was expected to perform tricks that he had never done, and if he performed them incorrectly all of the whales were withheld food. “This annoyed the others, so they would rake him with their teeth, causing him to bleed” (Lewis). In the wild, when a dominant orca begins showing aggression the other orca has thousands of miles to swim away and flee the scene. However, these animals are in pools where they do not have that option. Living in these tanks are essentially giving killer whales the image of being monsters.
The idea of a shark coming up from the underneath and ripping off a limb or two is very terrifying. The use of the teeth is to give the audience the idea that this shark is harmful and will do anything to hurt anyone. Another example of how the designer used fear to drive emotions is by the use of darkness. Many of people are afraid of darkness, and in this poster, this huge shark is emerging out of the dark blue ocean showing that it is evil and mysterious.
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
The Reflection Paper on the “Sharkwater” The Sharkwater is a documentary created by Rob Stewart in 2006. The movie raises an important question about the survival of sharks, one of the most ancient creatures on the planet. It makes people look on these creatures from different point of view. I cannot say I treated sharks only like monstrous characters from films like Jaws or Sharknado before I saw this documentary.
This is only half true, the other half being calm and elegant creatures. They represent how violent the natural world can be, and the pervasive and remorseless reality of a terrifying and agonizingly painful death (Florman int). Like the unsympathetic ocean, the sharks have no benevolence for the men: only hunger. The sharks, and the mortality they represent, are a major contribution to why Mac’s fortitude, his ability so survive, was so undermined. Louie’s imagined treaty with the sharks emphasizes their meaning as a specifically natural violence.
Bull sharks are territorial and is likely the cause for human attacks. When encountering a bull shark, you will most likely see a remora attached. Bull sharks are near threatened. Did you know that the possibly oldest shark may never be completely known? There are shark-like scales dated from 455 million years ago, but there is a debate on whether they are truly shark scales.
Blackfish By Kirstin O’Neill The blackfish article and the movie are arguing about the captivity of the whales and how they harmful and how they are not. So the documentary had said that the whales are more aggressive in captivity than in the wild. The article claims that whales live longer in captivity than in the wild.
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.
This essay will be exploring rouge sharks and will be expressing an informed opinion on why they should be conserved in most of the situations. In this essay points that will be discussed will be not limited to how sharks kill a relatively small amount of people, that sharks do not enjoy eating people and that. The main point that I would like to get across is that sharks do not like to eat people, after one bite they generally don’t come back for another taste as we as people don’t have enough fat or flesh on our body for a shark to bother eating us along with the fact that we are very bony compared to a sharks regular prey such as seals, smaller fish and even other smaller sharks which means that the sharks have evolved to digest those animals with small bones or hardened cartridge and not our big thick bones.
