Man I’m watching Blackfish on Netflix right now and I am disgusted at what Sea World did to the whales and what they allowed to happen to the trainers
- the original Sea World whales were captured from the wild—hunters separated and removed baby…
Actually, Tilikum wasn’t originally from Sea World, he was from SeaLand, which caught killer whales from the wild. Sea World got him when SeaLand shut down because of animal mistreatment. Tilikum was never trained to have trainers in the water with him- the original owner thought it was too dangerous. So, Tilikum was never trained to do “water work.” Trainers weren’t allowed in the water.
He was kept in a small tank at SeaLand with 2 females, who bullied him constantly. Basically, because of his original owners, Tilikum can’t work with trainers in the water and is just basically a wreck.
Also, one of the people he killed broke into the park and got in the tank with him. Killer whales with new things in their tanks think “toy” and want to explore.
Blackfish is incredibly biased, the trainers they have speaking haven’t worked for Sea World in decades, and they use footage that is out of context and has voice overs that don’t actually go with the footage.
Do I agree with how the whales are kept in captivity? No. But Sea World has made every possible improvement to take care of this whale that can’t be put back in the wild because of how Sea Land treated him and how whales were originally caught.
Jana Romanova a Russian photographer captures couples in their sleep to explore their cultural attitude inside their families. Since she didn’t want them to pose she had to stick around their house till they fall asleep deeply and she would take the picture at 5-6 am. The project was named “Waiting” as they are parents to be.
these make me so happy
