Whatwould it be like to be surrounded by enclosed walls, very cramped enclosuresand not having freedom? This describes life as an animal in a zoo or aquarium keptin captivity. Some debate and characterize aquariums and zoos as being“captive”while others feel the marine and land animals should be let out into the seaandexperience what freedom is really like. However, animals that are taken in havein most cases suffered an injury or illness from being in the wild. These captivedisplays of the animals are an educational experience and show on lookers whatit looks like to be down in the sea with the other animals, what all theaquatic life looks like and in zoo cases what’s it like to be in the animalwild.
The only time they really get to swim in a straight line is when they are changing holding tanks. Not only are the enclosures small, they are overcrowded as well. Many marine mammals such as Orcas, or many breeds of dolphins are put together in areas with others that aren’t part of their family group. The lack of space and unfamiliar company causes stress and outburst of violence among the animals and towards the trainers. Dolphins and Orcas have a sort of pecking order to keep each other in line and when an animals falls out of line the higher ranking
The IWC is an international committee of representatives that help conserve a variety of whale species by eliminating the practice of commercial whaling. Although, many different species of whales are protected under the IWC, dolphins are not included. Consequently, it is legal to slaughter dolphins in many parts of the world. The director attempts to show these devastating consequences by provide footage of dolphin killings. Personally, I will never forget the clicks and screams these dolphins filled the entire cove with.
Dolphins usually hunt during the day. However, when fish begin migrating, fish automatically become their prey to dolphins. Dolphins also search for squid which are active at night. The predators are some big shark species as like tiger shark, dusky shark, great white shark, and the bull shark. The dolphin can defend its self but with the skills of the shark, it’s not rare for the dolphin to fail.
She succeeded in getting me to think analytically as well as inversely about orcas and going to SeaWorld in general. While watching the emotional film I felt sympathy for the intelligent, sentient creatures being held undeserving imprisoned. As well as unsettled, the thought of these mammals being snatched away from family and their children and enslaved to do tricks for fish. With orcas being so friendly and harmless to humans in the wild, then to attack humans because they are suffering from psychosis in captivity
These lion ﬁsh prey on all different types of animals, such as: crabs, shrimp and smaller ﬁsh; and have very little amount predators giving them the place in the higher levels of the food chain. Since it is so high in the food chain and preys on almost anything, it has managed to survive in the Atlantic Ocean perfectly. In the Atlantic, lion ﬁsh are deﬁned as invasive species, which means, "a non-native organism that has intruded into an area and may have serious detrimental effects on native organisms, the local economy, and human health". sadly many accidents have led to the invasion where the lion ﬁsh has spread all across the Caribbean Sea and up North in places like Rhode Island. It is hypothesized that the origin of the whole problem came from only six lion ﬁsh that were accidentally released from an aquarium to the Atlantic Ocean in 1992 during hurricane Andrew.
Whaling has been around on since prehistoric times, they were hunted by chasing the whales, and throwing a harpoon into them. Whaling and fishing in the late nineteenth and twentieth century became a tragedy of the commons where fishermen had little incentive to allow some fish to remain to only be taken by others. Countries around the world were putting whales on the brink of extinction through any means necessary. By not taking young fish, this would allow future fish to keep the population stable, but by not taking the younger fish, the fishermen would lose these to other fishermen. In the 1800s and 1900s whales were found to be quite practical and useful.
Many of wild animals cannot cope with situation that they are taken from their natural habitats and placed in captivity. They cannot carry on their normal activity like in the wild and become listless and inactive in zoo. They also lose their natural abilities such as sprinting and hunting when placed in captivity. According to Virginia McKenna, the founder of Born Free Foundation and wildlife campaigner of United Kingdom suggested that freedom is a precious concept, and wildlife suffers mentally and physically from the lack
The man thought that he could catch and abundant amount of fish but instead he caught the manta ray, and for the first time the man had felt like the prey. The man underestimated nature and believed that the fish were weak and helpless, but in the end, he became the prey instead. Based on the evidence shown, humans should work to respect nature and not belittle it as it could be more devastating than anyone could think
Is Human Right In Keeping Killer Whales In Prison? In recent years, people start to care about the environment and animals. A lot of laws and actions are applied to improve the habitat which they destroyed so much before and protect the other species all around the world. In some countries, the captive situation of killer whales – the large marine mammal – is one of the most important problems. From the second half of 20th century, theme parks caught orcas from the ocean and keep them to organize entertain shows.
