I am looking forward to seeing this documentary, so far I have only found it on Hulu. I recommend it based on it’s director, Louie Psihoyos, the director of The Cove. This story follows activists who take action in Taiji Japan to try to stop the senseless slaughter and capture of some of the most intelligent, sentient animals on our planet, cetaceans (dolphins).

As always, please boycott Seaworld and all other parks that capture healthy cetaceans and put them on display, as these are the places that fund the horrors that occur in Taiji, since they buy live wild dolphins for high prices. Also, please remind those you know to boycott these places. This is one of the most important things every single person can do, because taking away the profits of those places may stop this from happening in the future.

Companies can do the right thing. They can take a stand for ethics and morals and do what is right, all while still being a profitable venture. Social, ethical, and environmental responsibility are things we should all strive for in both our personal lives and professional ones, and they can be compatible with our goals.

Instead of visiting dolphinariums, I highly recommend checking out whale and dolphin watching tours. They educate the public about orcas while allowing them to stay in their natural habitat. This one is in Vancouver, Canada. I hardly imagine it would be much more expensive to go whale watching than it would to go to seaworld in San Diego, Texas, or Orlando. Please consider whale watching as an alternative to visiting seaworld’s parks. Please boycott seaworld, every person can do something by not going to these parks and not supporting their cruelty.

Keep whales wild. Captivity is cruel. Imprisonment does not educate. 

We could educate the next generation with whale watches, observing wild powerful species quietly from their own habitat. We do not need to control them and keep them away from their natural habitat, forcing upon them unnatural circumstances and behaviors, and completely uprooting their beautiful natural social behaviors and cultural structure. Leave them be. Let them be free.

Dr Naomi Rose and Susan Gray Davis defend orca whales (killer whales) against Sea World representatives. I highly recommend people watch this. 

REMEMBER: PLEASE VOTE WITH YOUR WALLET, DON’T GO TO SEAWORLD. PLESE EDUCATE FRIENDS, FAMILY, AND STRANGERS. 

SeaWorld must be stopped. It is horrible that they defend keeping these sentient, intelligent animals in conditions that harm them on top of ripping young whales from their mothers, and doing all sorts of heinous things to them. 

BOYCOTT SEAWORLD!
