33. Lara
Lara is the second killer whale born in captivity in Japan, the first being her older sister Lovey. Being born to wild captures Bingo (father) and Stella (mother), Lara’s DNA is 100% Icelandic.  In captivity, Lara played a role very similar to that of a wild female orca. For example, Lara assisted her mother and sister during their pregnancies and while giving birth. Her caretakers at Sea World refer to Lara as an outstanding aunt to her niece, Luna, and nephew, Earth. In the wild, this pod of whales would live as a close family their entire lives. In captivity, however, Lara’s mother, father and two siblings were transported to a different marine park.

This is an assignment done for one of my classes, we had to do a charity/organization poster! It was a very fun process. I’m not very good at type but my roommate helped me out ;v;
I chose to do a poster for WildAid!

Underwater Viewing, SeaWorld of Florida, 2013

Anyone able to identify who that is that’s being attacked? (Also, who the aggressors are would be pretty cool.)

Procaps, It’s okay to change your mind. 

I was a SeaWorld supporter for a long time. Then I looked honestly at myself and realized I was visiting those parks for my own enjoyment more than anything else. I was being selfish. Yeah, it sucks to admit it. 

You truly think you love those animals. You love being able to go the park and watch animals that you can identify by name. You feel like you know them.

But what you actually love is being close those them. Which is not the same thing. To truly and unselfishly love those animals, you need to put their needs above your desires.

Anticaps say all the time: “You get to go home at the end of the day. But they don’t.” Have you ever thought about what that actually means? Yes, most of those animals were born in captivity, and captivity is the only “home” they’ve ever known. But as you leave the park, off to have dinner with your friends, or go literally anywhere else, those animals are still circling the same barren tanks over and over again again (or logging at the surface). This makes up the vast majority of their life - outside of shows and the occasional toy tossed in their pool. Is that fair to them?

Do you want to support a company that supports the Taiji slaughters under the table?

Do you really want to support a company that inseminates female animals whenever they see fit, even if the animals are not physically and mentally ready for a pregnancy? 

Do you want to support a company that doctors facts about wild animals to make captivity seem acceptable? A company that has a whole list of buzzwords in the education manual because theyknow the reality of what they’re actually doing and want to hide that reality from the public?

Do you want to support a company that flat-out refuses to own up to the awful things they’ve done in the past? A company that acts as though the hatred being spewed against it is completely unjustified?

Do you want to support a company that has proven over the last several months that, without a doubt, they care more about their public image than about the animals in their “care”? (Would these new tank plans exist if Blackfish had never come out? Absolutely not).

If you truly love animals, you should do the unselfish thing and stop visiting these parks.

I think it's funny that procaps will say Keiko's death indicates we shouldn't release captive whales and it's impossible, but when you bring up the dozens of whales that died after only months in captivity they say it's okay, it's a learning curve, we know better now.

Hey Pro-Caps….This is what your precious money pays for whenever you go to an aquarium!!!

Do You feel Guilty yet?

Watch THE COVE!!!

"SeaWorld said they don’t support Taiji!" "SeaWorld takes care of their animals!" "SeaWorld doesn’t buy dolphins from Taiji!"

Hello again! So my question for today is this: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? ~Your Halloween Santa

I would probably go to London. I’ve been there before but I really want to go again! It’s so beautiful

Does anyone know If this is true?

Does anyone know If this is true?
