The park will have its final show Sunday, but the whales won't completely stop doing tricks.

Nor will they end the cruel, sterile, stressful life in captivity for these marine mammals.

An obituary for Tilikum, SeaWorld's saddest orca

http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/tilikum-orca-seaworld-blackfish-dead-confinement-peta-a7515721.html

"Tilikum may be gone, but there's still time for Katina, Kasatka, Ulises and Corky – the other orcas at SeaWorld – to be transferred to sea sanctuaries which can provide them with some semblance of the life that they've been robbed of for so long."

"If we are to honour Tilikum’s memory, we must stop at nothing to ensure that his death is the last one inside SeaWorld’s walls. That can be his legacy."

That's not what THIS thread is about.
It's about actually learning and be proactive about the suffering and cruel, tragic conditions these creatures must endure, over their lifetime, because stupid people "love" them and sentence them to lifelong captivity for profit and greed.

Read "The Case Against Marine Mammals In Captivity by the Humane Society International and the World Society for the Protection of Animals:
[www.humanesociety.org]

"The Humane Society International and the World Society for the Protection of Animals have stated that they believe that "the entire captive experience for marine mammals is so sterile and contrary to even the most basic elements of compassion and humanity that it should be rejected outright."

Orca Found Dead with a Stomach Full of GARBAGE!

http://www.theinertia.com/environment/orca-found-dead-with-a-stomach-full-of-garbage/#modal-close

Last month, a dead killer whale washed ashore in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, with a stomach full of trash. According to researchers, the whale had almost no real food inside of it–instead, it had plastic containers, the sole of a shoe, and various food wrappers.

Clearly, it wasn’t a painless death. For over a week, the orca swam in the relatively shallow waters of the bay while residents of the area kayaked out to look at it. Although orcas generally swim in pods, this one was alone, and scientists believe it was sick and separated from the group. Once in the bay, the whale ate what it could find, but there was something very wrong. “We’re not sure whether it’s cause or effect, but she might have been trying to pick up anything she could,” said Dr. Gwenith Penry, Plett Stranding Network coordinator. “Or she swallowed something earlier on and it blocked her passages, so she felt full, but wasn’t digesting.” When the whale eventually beached itself, volunteers kept it wet with buckets of water until crews managed to get it back into deeper water. Then, three days later, it was found dead.

It’s no secret that humans are royally screwing up the planet. The irony is that what’s screwing it up is our efforts to make our own lives easier and presumably better–but in the age of convenience, we’ve created a thoroughly disposable way of living, and it’s one that just isn’t working. Unfortunately, the kind of changes necessary require a shift on a global scale, involving governments and citizens alike. A few days ago, a report came out stating that if we continue the way we’re going, the ocean will have more trash in it than fish by the year 2050.

“The best research currently available estimates that there are over 150 million tons of plastics in the ocean today,” the study says. “In a business-as-usual scenario, the ocean is expected to contain 1 ton of plastic for every 3 tons of fish by 2025, and by 2050, more plastics than fish (by weight).”

We’re currently letting just under 10 million tons of plastic into the ocean every year. If you break that number down into a more understandable scale, it works out to a garbage truck full of plastic every single minute of every single day. It’s no wonder, then, that the only thing the starving whale could find to eat was our garbage. According to The Dodo, the whale was taken to the dump, where it was dissected.
The orca was taken to a dump to be dissected.

While there are a few efforts to begin fixing the problem–Boyan Slat’s ingenious Ocean Cleanup Array, for instance–they are few and far between, and for the most part, only serve to make the tiniest dent in a problem that is getting bigger with each passing day. The killer whale’s death is yet another indicator that we need make major changes to our way of living, and we need to do it as soon as possible. Hubert Reeves said it best: “Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible nature, unaware that the nature he’s destroying is the God he’s worshiping.”
