Does this picture shock you? It should. These men, 26 of them, I believe, slaughter between one and twenty thousand dolphins at Taiji cove each year. The annual “dolphin drive” runs between September and April, with more than half of the dolphins caught being killed for their meat and the rest being sold to marine parks where they will spend their lives in captivity, performing tricks in order to be fed.
This barbarity NEEDS to end. Educate yourself about it. Help put a stop to it.
This is what you are supporting if you go to any marine park. Say no to abusement parks.
If you are unconcerned with the murder, exploitation and kidnapping of cetaceans you can go fuck yourself. I have zero interest in knowing anyone who supports whale and dolphin captivity.

The term ‘Orca sanctuary’ is used many times in discussions around orca captivity. A refuge for orcas that can’t be released into the wild. But how will this new home for retired orcas look like? We created an artist impression of such a sanctuary. A natural setting in a protected bay, closed with nets. No entertainment and shows and no breeding programs. People can watch the animals up-close without disturbing them. Does that mean a better life for ex-showorcas?
What is your opinion? Orca Sanctuaries: the perfect solution or complete nonsense?
I saw the documentary ‘Black Fish’ on CNN and all I can say is EVERYONE should watch it and ‘The Cove’ before going to a park like Sea World. They disgust me now, I’m ashamed to say I went when I was younger. These are just SOME of the whales Sea World has kidnapped, inbred, let die, etc. PASS IT ON!
I start by saying I mean no offence with using the term Auschwitz in this post. Its more to drive the point home and I apologize for any offence. What happened in that place, and any place like that including California’s past Japanese citizen “encampments” is not okay. Not one intelligent nor helpless creature should have to suffer that.
Now anyone who knows me can describe me as a Daddy’s girl. I love my Dad. More then anything really. I idealize him and strive to be as amazing a person as he. The tragic thing about that is that I’m a Daddy’s girl whose father was suddenly taken from me at the age of ten. Now the connection I make is I cherish memories with him above all else.
One of the few memories I have of him is one of the only two family vacations we were able to take. My Mom and Dad pack me, my sister, and my medically sensitive brother into the jeep and we made the drive from Ma to Fl. We did everything we could, Disney, orlando , and SeaWorld. I loved SeaWorld. I can remember it the most vivid. Maybe because it wasn’t a 30 second spinning ride. But I remember it.
Now I’m 23. Still adoring and idealizing my father who I never really got the chance to know. A little over a year ago I heard of the death of Dawn. A gifted sea mammal training who worked at Fl SeaWorld for years. Maybe she even did the show when I was there over a decade ago. If so, she was amazing. All there trainers are really.
Its not them I have a problem with but SeaWorld. Its bile. My Dad would spit at the way they treat there animals.
Sea world cheapened and took some very precious memories from me by selling my parents my naive joy for profit.
After watching the documentary Blackfish, along with hours and hours of my own research on the internet YouTube, countless documentaries on special cases like Luna the orca, whom lived among people from a very young age in a harbor I believe in Canada . Sadly while still very young a tugboat motor killed him. But not before we psychologically tortured him by thinking we knew what was best and some even hated him for daring to mess wit their expensive boats while board and lonely.
I’ve even branched out into stories of 52 hertz. A wild whale who can’t communicate with others, so he travels the oceans forever calling for a mate that can’t hear him.
Sometimes dubbed the loneliest whale in the world.
I think the captive sea mammals, the orca in general are even more alone.
Some kidnapped from their families, other mass breed from what I can only refer to as The Mad King Orca. Tilikum. The infamous orca that has been “responsible” for at least three deaths. Who was stollen from his mother as a cafe. Then kept in a tank with other orca that I can’t only theorize and explain as not speaking his language, or dialect. As a male in a highly female ruled species forced into a living space under 1% of their normal living space Tilikum was unwanted in a way and bullied by the two female orca that didn’t know him.. Also cut off from the social and all audio world they know. Then with their highly train hearing have crowds scream and yell at them like some mythical gladiators. They don’t live the same glory. Far from it. And SeaWorld is sadly the nicest mantained of the amusement parks.
Dolphins are now none human personas in multiple countries. This means that the capture, forced imprisonment, and all other unwilling acts are illegal. The killer whale orca is infact the largest of the dolphin. Does this carry on to them?
If so then how is this any different then the horrors that went unnoticed by the mass in…well any war. We take these intelligent creatures from the homes they know. Then we starve them so trainers can use fish as a positive reward, they are kept in tiny small areas, they are not taken care of. Even their teeth are drilled in a horrible similarity to what the Jewish people went through.
There isn’t a happy way to end this. Its an ugly ugly truth. I for one will never buy a ticket to SeaWorld ever again, and I will make sure everyone I know who touches the subject is corrected.
