You can tell that the majority of procaps really are a selfish as we thought when their response to the end of captive breeding is “Being a Shamu trainer was my dream! Why SeaWorld???” And “Now future generations don’t get to see them up close at SeaWorld!”
And then there are those that act like it’s such a travesty that eventually there will be an orca alone like they haven’t ignored Kiska and Kshamenk and Lolita for years.
And then you have the ones that are arguing for how important breeding and raising calves is to their lives. It’s “unnatural” to not let them. Because an unnatural environment, unnatural health issues, unnatural breeding, unnatural behaviors and more is o.k.
It’s about you - it always has been and it always will be.
