END CAPTIVITY- DON'T BUY A TICKET

The capture, trade, and captivity of dolphins and whales is cruel, there is no doubt about that. Help end the captivity of these beautiful and wild animals. "A dolphin's smile is the greatest deception. It creates the illusion they are always happy" - Ric O'barry

These two beautiful orcas (Hugo and Lolita - Miami Seaquarium) were living in the same tank, smaller than the legal size for one orca, at the same time. That is, until Hugo became so depressed he committed suicide by basing his head against the glass until he suffered an aneurism. Still think that picture is cool? No. It’s cruel.

it was also cruel when miami seaquarium placed hugo’s body in the county dump after he took his own life. 

This picture makes me sick. The Whale Bowl isn’t even big enough for Lolita by herself, how did these two bear it for ten years like this? 

My heart just broke a million times over…

Not suitable

NOT ok.

Why was this even allowed to happen? We should never have been allowed to put such beautiful creatures into a hell of our own making

I have been combing idly through newspaper archives, don’t mind me. This is from 1976 also. I figured it may be relevant to some to see that that the rhetoric here is almost identical to what we’re seeing right now with AB2140.I would highlight bits, but the whole thing’s of interest.

"SeaWorld has the potential either to earn the support or the opposition of conservationists. It has the potential for conducting genuinely educational work, but the evidence to date suggests that the business rather than the educational interests are dominating the management decisions."
Would you look at that. Not a single thing has changed since 1976.

Ops, I thought Kshamenk’s pool filters had been “improved”? This pool still looks terribly dirty to me. Picture taken on November 28, 2013.
According to this article (Spanish), 90% of Argentinian zoological facilities do not follow WAZA regulations, Mundo Marino included.

"Yesterday, La Nation consulted several zoos on this survey, but got no response. The Oceanarium Mundo Marino in San Clemente, confirmed it had received the report and is analyzing it."
