Orcas in captivity face premature death, “In the wild they have an average life expectancy of 30 to 50 years—their estimated maximum lifespan is 60 to 70 years for males and 80 to over 100 for females. The median age of orcas in captivity is only 9, and orcas at SeaWorld rarely make it even to the average life expectancy of their wild cousins.”(SeaWorld oh Hurt) Orcas need to swim up to a hundred miles each day but in the parks they are only confined to a tiny pool and forced to swim in the same space their entire life. Being in such small spaces, light has been shed on the fighting between killer whales. “Orcas who are not compatible are forced to live in tight quarters together. The resulting anxiety and tension cause fights between orcas.
The pots were about 3 feet 6 inches and contained two to three dozen good size crayfish weighing about two several pounds. The men said it was about one hundred and fifteen to three hundred feet long. Another eyewitness saw a great white shark the size of a tractor trailer had attacked a person. Many sharks have been clocked out as fast as 1.5 miles and the mega shark could probably swim in a longer distance since this is a bigger shark. Two percent of the ocean has been overlooked by people ant it leaves ninety-eight percent of the ocean for the megladon can swim.
SeaWorld rebutted against Blackfish’s stories on the heartbreaking capturing of Orcas in the wild by SeaWorld with the statement in their new commercial “SeaWorld does not capture killer whales in the wild. Due to the groundbreaking success of our research in marine mammal reproduction, we haven’t collected a killer whale from the wild in 35 years.” In some underhanded way this is true. the company that runs SeaWorld, Blackstone group, has not captured orca whales for the purpose of display at SeaWorld since 1985, but continued to buy Orcas from third party capturers. In addition SeaWorld insists that their whales life spans of 35 years or so is equivalent to that of wild orcas. First of all, the median life span of a SeaWorld orca is only 9 years.
Imagine being taken from your mother at a young age…envision being thrown into a restricted room, no way out and scarcely enough room to move…visualize only being let out to perform preposterous tricks in front of a crowd of people who don’t understand the desolation you are forced to endure behind closed doors. This is what one-hundred and forty-one captive Orcas have had to face, and out of those one-hundred and forty-one Orcas, only sixteen are still alive to date. (WDC) Hm…seems like captivity isn’t the paramount decision when it comes to an Orcas welfare considering that their survival range utterly plummets from thirty to forty years in the wild to only four to twenty-eight years. (WDC) There are some who would argue and say that these captive Orcas wouldn’t be able to survive if released back into the wild…they wouldn’t know how to sustain their life, and would possibly die without ever making it anywhere. Orcas, in captivity, are likely to suffer multiple health problems, not only from disease, but from other Orcas whom they share their tanks with.
The animals are held in tanks, large pools, or fenced off sections in the ocean. Though animal shows featuring dolphins and whales attract many people, it is cruel to capture these wild animals to force them to perform for crowds. Places such as sea aquariums or theme parks, like Sea World, promote the captivity of marine animals, when they should be free in their natural habitat in the ocean. Animals held in captivity lose their sense of self reliance and their natural instincts, because food and care is provided for them. It is cruel and wrong of the human population to enslave animals for the sheer purpose of entertainment.
The populations are becoming so hard to find that fisheries are now catching the fish in estuaries, a place where the juveniles grow. There is also no ban on fishing them during certain seasons. This leads to the capture of pregnant females, and of juveniles. The population has declined so much that many fisheries have gone out of business. The reason I don’t think that the consumption from predators is why the population is declining so rapidly is the fact that these predators have been hunting these fish for hundreds of years.
Koalas do not have a place in this world there's not enough room for all the *****es in this world. So let all the koalas that's in the zoos and ****. Let them go and put them back with their family. If you let them all go they won't nothing except for that's what they was put in this world for. Now you know why koalas aren't important.
Recently after numerous attacks, the Western Australian government stated a hunt and kill policy on any shark that is a tiger, bull or great white over the size of 4 meters. For numerous reasons this should be deemed illegal by the government and stop the culling in Western Australia. Australia is home to more diverse, unique and beautiful animals than any other place on earth, and included in these animals are the three sharks that have been focused on about in the cull in Western Australia. Ever since people have been utilising beaches for swimming and surfing, there have been shark attacks. And sadly on the flip side, ever since people have been swimming/ surfing at beaches, there have been attacks on sharks.
But there was an even bigger surprise. "The distance covered by these zebra was a total shock to all of us involved in the study, as well as to people familiar with wildlife conservation in the region," he says. "Nobody knew that something of this scale, with this much ground covered, was occurring. " Naidoo says the research team in Namibia—scientists from WWF and Namibia's Ministry of Environment and Tourism—had a suspicion that the zebras were up to something, "since animals
What is more, zoos are like prisons for animals as they live in small cages and do not get necessary food. In addition, animals become very aggressive and unpredictable as they get older and often attack zoo keepers and other people. However, most people think that zoos help endangered species survive. But this is not true because most rare animals are extremely difficult to breed in captivity. Besides, in zoos, it is almost impossible to meet the animals’ natural needs.
