Beck was a real friend
I got mad and made a thing.
What the fuck, of course captivity is a problem. If you’re going to tell others to devote themselves to causes which help the well-being of cetaceans then don’t be a hypocrite. YOU need to have some compassion and see that keeping an animal in captivity is in no way acceptable. It is absolutely ridiculous and ignorant to believe that a healthy animal is better off in captivity than it is in it’s natural habitat. I read through your blog quickly and saw that you support both captivity and artificial insemination and also say that it is not possible for certain orcas to be released. You say that artificial insemination is important because it ‘solves a lot of inbreeding issues while keeping captive pods together’ when it has only ever been successful twice with orcas lol. Not to mention that captive pods are really just a bunch of random orcas chucked together and aren’t family (unless they’ve been bred in captivity). The only reason that they do use artificial insemination is because they’re no longer able to capture orcas from the wild. On your point that some orcas can’t be released back into the wild, it is possible for them to be kept in sea pens which would be much, much better than the bath tubs that they are in now.
How can people learn more about these animals by studying them in an unnatural environment? How does keeping cetaceans in captivity help environmental conservation when people are seeing them in a man made environment rather than their natural habitat? I don’t know about you but if I went out to the ocean and saw orcas I’d feel a much greater connection to them and to the environment than if i was paying money to watch through a window as they swam in circles. It’s good that you recognise there is improvements needed in the industry because yeah, there definitely is but ideally the industry should not exist at all. And in regards to you saying that the keeping of cetaceans in captivity creates a lot of jobs, that’s yet another problem. They should not be exploited to make money. They are conscious beings who deserve freedom.
tl;dr you’re a hypocrite and this is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen

you sit down to watch the lion king with me. i point out that leafcutter ants do not live in africa within the first five minutes. you begin to realize that you have made a horrible mistake. i continue to point out every usage of a tiger’s roar in place of a lion’s. you are at the door, but it is locked.
