#quote from #blackfish.

One of the reasons aggression is so common amongst orcas in captivity is because SeaWorld mixes transients and residents together.

#Transients and #residents are genetically distinct. They even speak different #languages. Some scientists have even argued they should be classed as different species. Yet #SeaWorld just throws them all into a sterile stressful environment together and calls them 'families'. This results in conflict and aggression not commonly seen in the wild. They can't escape this aggression. It has resulted in death before, in the case of #kandu5.

SeaWorld mixes transients and residents in their breeding programme too, this is highly unlikely to happen in the wild. Due to this, these mixed offspring are not representative of their wild counterparts and have no conservation value.

freedomforwhales MYTH: Marine parks help to conserve orcas and dolphins through breeding programs.
TRUTH: The marine mammals most commonly bred in captivity are not threatened or endangered species, so continued breeding in captivity exists to produce the next generation of park entertainers and to ensure continued profits. Aquariums have no intention of returning captive-bred animals to the wild. In fact they claim that the success of such an endeavor would be unlikely and vehemently oppose release efforts.
Real conservation efforts focus on protecting habitat and the animals’ place in that habitat.
