The Simple Stats (USA)
Recent polling data, HERE, shows that only 21% of the American public support keeping killer whales in captivity; 50% oppose; and 29% are undecided.
Maybe there’s a reason there are no pro-captivity research papers…
Hmmmmm. Imagine that!

I’ve been on Tumblr for alomst 3 years now and so is this piece of……oh dear lord heaven and earth. I need a moment off tumblr. Also just read the last reblog fromderangedhyena-delphinidaeand I just wow to that orcinus dude …some people really need to recognize when they need some serious mental assistance. See a doctor. Humans are scary.
“I have been grabbed by the arm up to my elbow in their mouth (just like Dawn was by Tilikum) on over a dozen occasions by those same four Orcas when they were inviting me into the water. I am unhurt, whole and alive and not a trainer nor had any “special training for interacting with Orcas”. Apparently the trainer you speak of had no idea how to properly deal with Orcas despite the “special training” they had.”
I’m done now. Apparently Dawn wasn’t such a special snowflake like him and this why she got killed.What the fuck is thisthemidnightclub teamorkid

"everything you say is because SeaWorld forces you to believe it"
You do realize SeaWorld hasn’t gotten involved in the captivity debate, until before blackfish right? You do realize that 9/10ths of the arguments used in cetacean captivity debates aren’t even used by them when defending themselves in recent months. SeaWorld forces no one to believe anything, stop living in a dream world, wake up and visit a park before you make such a ridiculous claim.
SeaWorld doesn’t need to get involved in the captivity debate at all. They make claims about dorsal collapse, “natural” behavior, tooth drilling, etc. and they incriminate themselves with those claims. These are the claims that the public believes because SeaWorld is hugely influential in public opinion on killer whale captivity and they have been for 50 years. see: *brainwashing*
It’s okay to want to be a trainer. It’s okay to want to care for animals who live in a zoological setting. It’s not as selfish as many people make it look, you literally dedicate your life to caring for another being, it’s not about the captivity debate, or the negativity surrounding the animals life, but it’s about providing them what’s needed to sustain their lives. It’s okay to want to be a trainer my friend.
Is it okay if I want to be a dolphin trainer at some run-down facility in Podunk China? I’d show up on time and I’d work 24/7 if that’s what it took. Of course I’d want to get PAID for it, but really, I’d be dedicating myself to keeping the company’s assets alive and well in the tank so they can live to work another day. Have you ever heard of such a noble endeavor?! And yeah, you and lots of other people might not agree with the facility I work at and what goes on there. Hell, even I might not agree with everything they do! Management could tell me to separate a mom and baby!…but I can just close myself in a little bubble and ignore that negative shit like my job depends on it…because it does…
