#Regrann from @s.t.r.a.y.s - He isn't saying hi. He's saying,"Why aren't you helping me?" Let's talk about SeaWorld.
Slavery was abolished December, 1865, correct? So why are we holding these animals hostage and forcing them to work in the entertainment field w/ no pay? They barely have suitable conditions, will pools 40ft. deep TOPS.
They look fine, right? That's because they're covered up with zinc oxide. Whales in this type of direct sun blisters and burns their skin. Underneath the black coat, they're most likely hurting.
If you know what SeaWorld is, you've probably heard of Shamu. Did you know that Shamu's mother was killed while capturing her? They didn't need her, so they killed her. She was a full grown whale and wouldn't have been good for the job. Not only are they being put into horrible conditions, but the life they're living has shown to decrease their life expectancy in captivity. An Orca's lifespan is usually about 30-50 years, 70-80 tops (rare but can happen)... meanwhile, an orca in captivity is expected to live 10.
Killer whales and dolphins both usually swim up to 100 miles a day, whereas in SeaWorld, their pool isn't even 1/2 a mile long, nor deep.
Please notice in this picture, the whale's fin appears to be collapsed. This could be due to old age, or stress. Since orca's tend to die at such a young age, most cases it's stress. Collapsed fins are unhealthy and show that the whale is suffering.
These whales must be removed. A pool shared with other whales is not the place for them. They did nothing to deserve this.
I call for boycott.

theeanimallover I have nothing against animal captivity in terms of conservation efforts for certain endangered species. I do however believe that captivity should be our very last resort in saving a species. Shouldn't we first try saving their environment? I have nothing against marine mammal trainers, caretakers, or conservation scientists. But I am totally against big corporations exploiting magnificent creatures to make a buck. Take for example marine mammals, and for my purposes I will talk about the exquisite orca whale. Its majestic beauty has attracted the attention of people worldwide. But the orca whale is neither extinct nor truly endangered. So why are we keeping them captive in an area much too small for them to flourish as a species? It would be like raising a child to live in a bedroom, and never leaving it for the rest of its life; never experiencing the world, or socializing with others, or moving freely as they please. Imagine what that would do to the human spirit. Imagine what it does to the whale's. The orca has the second largest brain of all animals, with parts similar to that of the human brain. In particular we share the limbic lobe. The limbic system in humans is associated with emotional life and behavior as well as the formation of memory. The orca's limbic lobe is 4 times bigger than the human limbic lobe. How can we kid ourselves by saying they don't have feelings, or the memory of a life of freedom? The orca is not entertainment. It was not put on earth to serve human curiosity. They deserve a chance at a free life. Please stop the captivity of this, and other marine mammals. They are not a commodity. They are a life with a heart, and a soul deserving of freedom. #animallover#savethewhales#orcas#seaworld#antiseaworld#sadness#stopanimalcruelty#stopanimalabuse#animalabuse#animalcruelty thanks @lipstickandtats for helping spread awareness. 1w
