“Stop standing up for zoos. Roadside or corporal. They’re
using these majestic creature’s looks and beauty for entertainment and
to put money in their pockets. It’s a shame that the only way to get people to care about
animals is by gawking at them in confinement, according to people who
defend zoos anyway. Paying money to see a wild
animal in confinement teaches people that they are entitled to
entertainment by animals as a commodity. We need to teach each others to
value animals inherently and not because they offer us something nice to
if a marginalized group is “represented” in a form of media & that “representation” makes them uncomfortable then its not representation and maybe you should listen to what that group has to say? just a suggestion
If you haven’t watched Blackfish, watch it now. Watch what Seaworld is doing. Watch the stress they put on these poor animals. They’re not saving them, they’re using them, killing them, ruining them. Watch Blackfish and witness the corruption. Do it for Tilikum.
seaworldcares why was I blocked for asking genuine questions using your #askseaworld hashtag, like you invited the general public to do? So you just answer the questions that can be responded to with nice clean PR speeches, but block accounts asking you questions you don’t have pretty answers for?
RIP to Tilikum, who died after living a life in captivity. An innocent animal that was used for entertainment in a tiny pool, then isolated for killing one of the trainers (even though whales are not meant to be in captivity). He spent the rest of his remaining life alone. Rest in peace to this innocent creature who deserved to live his life in the sea, free, with the rest of his species.
