"It [One Ocean] is though more educational because of the music and the short pause for a trainer to say something about saving animals, but it still doesn’t give the trainers a better way of showing affection towards the animal."
Oh wow, cool music and a trainer saying some shit about saving animals? I am SO impressed! Seaworld has really made a turn around, where else could you get quality education about cetaceans like that? That is really some groundbreaking stuff.

It’s so sad though that there are no more opportunities for the trainers to “show their affection towards the animals.” Now THAT’S where the real education is. Who needs info about wild Orca behavior and teaching ways to save them when you can watch a performer in a flamboyant wetsuit stand on an Orca’s face and make googoo sounds at them? Psh, safety, who needs it, right?!

Repeat after me, kids: “Orcas are NOT TV characters.”

It’s so sad that we consider captive female Orcas who are in their late 30’s-40’s to be “old.”

Like

They should be in their prime. In the wild they would have had a few babies, and they would be an active functioning part of a pod. They wouldn’t be old and frail and…

Don’t forget Corky.

Keiko.
His story is used to discredit any effort to rehabilitate another captive orca.
But 158 deaths to date somehow do not discredit captivity.
Try and figure that one out.

When Keiko died, pro-caps were quick to say that the whole project was a failure. They said that releasing captive killer whales was a bad idea. But don’t you think it was better that Keiko died in the wide open ocean as a free whale instead of a prisoner in a concrete box? He got to experience the wild again. He knew what freedom felt like. He even got to swim with pods of wild whales! He swam from Iceland to Norway by himself. He got to live the life of a true killer whale again. In my book, that is a compete success.
