OH MY GOD WHO IS FORCING THAT PREGNANT ORCA TO SIDE BREACH??? DON'T THEY KNOW THEY ARE FORCING HER TO DO UNHEALTHY THINGS THAT WILL HARM HER BABY?!?!?!? oh wait this isn't Sea world, this is the wild, gosh darnit silly me.

The pregnant orca argument is just so stupid. I the wild, they breach and whatever it is orcas do on their free time. In SeaWorld however they are sliding over the ski drivers and just staying there and going into the slideouts and crushing their baby. That’s what happened to Gudrun. Sorry the whole argument makes me so angry. Obviously, it doesn’t do anything to the orca baby when they breach. It’s the slide outs crap that bothers me.

What the hell iphone? Stupid autocorrect.

Hi! I love your blog. I watched blackfish the other night for maybe the tenth time and i still cannot believe how animals , marine life in particular are treated in captivity. I live in Australia though and i guess i was wondering if you knew of any ways i can somehow help out with rights activism is any way? If this doesn't make sense or is pointless i completely understand. I hope you have a lovely day! x

I’m so sorry this took me forever to answer. But thank you! That made me smile ear to ear.
Yeah, I can’t imagine living in a country/continent where I can’t really actively protest. What you can do though is donate to research facilities like the WDC or the Whale Museum or The Sea Shepard that protest places like SeaWorld and put that money towards research. You can always always spread the word by putting up fliers getting people to watch Blackfish and The Cove. The chances of a tourist seeing those fliers or whatever is strong and they could go back to wherever it is they live and protest from there. I have never been asked this before so forgive me I am not of much help. But I hope it did. Does anyone want to add to this?

Good suggestions!
I usually donate to The Whale Museum (they do a lot of work helping the Southern Resident orcas, who are endangered because of lack of salmon and SeaWorlds capture methods way back when), and Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project/Earth Island Institute to help the fight against the Taiji dolphin slaughters.
You can also help by spreading the word. Have your friends and family watch Blackfish, start a blog, post stuff on Facebook. You can never raise enough awareness!
Lastly, beach clean-ups are always always a good idea, unfortunately our trash is killing ocean creatures and since you’re in AU, you can do a lot of good by visiting the beach every now and then to pick up litter!

Thank you tokitaee. You can also stop buying products from companies that sponsor SeaWorld. For example, Coca-cola.
