Free the Blackfish!

Anti-Cap. Quite simply- orcas belong in the ocean, not tanks.

fightingforwhales:

So I see lots of new people have joined the whale community here on tumblr lately, and I’m curious to see how many pro-caps, anti-caps, and neutral-caps we have. 

If you are anti-captivity, please reblog this post.

If you are pro-captivity, reblog this post. If you are neutral, reblog this one.

Here are some wonderful facts about Sea World’s orcas!
The average lifespan of wild orcas ranges from 30-50 years, although some females can easily make it past 80 (a wild orca named J2 or ‘Granny’ is 103 this year!). The lifespan of a Sea World orca is around 25 years, the median age being 9. But at least they put on a good show!
Don’t worry, collapsed dorsal fins are a common condition, although in the wild only sick or injured orcas have collapsed dorsal fins. All of Sea World’s males and some females have it, it makes them look unique! 
The size of Sea World’s tanks compared to an orca is about the same as a human to a bathtub. Lot’s of room to stretch and move!
Wild orcas swim 100+ miles a day, they would have to swim around their tank 1,400+ times a day to achieve that. But that seems like a lot of work, and you may see the animals hanging out near the surface of the water or on the bottoms of their tanks for hours. That’s a lot more relaxing than swimming all those miles!
Sea World gives their orcas a Valium-like drug to stop the whales from acting aggressively towards each other and to numb their minds from their vastly uninteresting concrete tanks. Buying a ticket to Sea World is an excellent way to help them pay for these drugs that they pump their animals full with!
Many captive orcas show abnormal behaviors like head bobbing, chewing on concrete, and self mutilation by banging their heads into the side of the tank. Obviously just temper-tantrums! Silly things.
In the wild, there has been only one orca attack. Bad orca! While in captivity, there have been over 100 attacks and 4 deaths. These animals just need more training, it couldn’t possibly be related to their confinement! 
Food is used as reinforcement for tricks. Do a trick, get your dinner. Don’t want to do a trick? I guess you don’t eat tonight you stubborn thing! 
See? Sea World isn’t as bad as people make it out to be! Oh, one more fact: for every $1,000,000 Sea World makes, about $600 goes into conservation efforts (about $0.5 a ticket). I’m so glad they care about conservation of the ocean! Amazing work!

If you haven’t realized it yet, this post is 100% sarcastic. It should be obvious, but not everyone understands sarcasm…

Vegans are like the most vile hypocrites »

themidnightclub:

If you truly want to avoid all things derived from animals, then fucking don’t take any prescription medication. Just taking them supports the FDA and their rules requiring animal testing for all pharmaceuticals and the pharmaceutical companies that use animal to develop and derive new and current…

Nothing worse than a damn vegan who claims superiority over non vegans.

  • seaworld supporters: seaworld cares about the environment! they want to conserve the planet and teach people to be more environmentally conscious!
  • seaworld: *breaks water use laws in 2 states and wastes water by using sprinklers during a drought in california to prevent protesters from protesting*

You don’t have to love animals to be vegan. Hell, you don’t even have to like them. It isn’t a question of love or compassion; it is a matter of basic decency.

But you have to be vegan to love animals? I’ve heard THAT too many times.
