so i saw that video going around of wikie pushing keijo onto the slide out and people were wondering why she was doing that.

well, i think this is the reason.

these are photos of sharkan, wikie’s mother, pushing wikie up onto the slide out when she was a calf. i think wikie is only doing what her mother did. after all, female orcas learn how to take care of calves by watching their own mothers or other females. i bet this is just what she thinks she’s supposed to do as a mom.

Ugh. Reading this really made my heart sink..

From Gary Sutton, captain of Wild Whales Vancouver:
"Here is a shot of some L’s yesterday. That’s L106 "Pooka" the foreground followed by L110 "Midnight", L83 "Moonlight", L115 "Mystic" and L95 "Nigel" just about to break the surface in the back. We did see a lot of L86 “Surprise” and her family but unfortunately no sign of the newest calf, L120. Around 50% of new calves will not survive their first year as moms milk can be high in toxins such as PCBs and PBDEs. It would be such a tragedy if L120 is officially missing. It was the first calf the southern resident community has seen since August of 2012 (J49).”
I can’t bear the thought that L120 could be missing. It makes my stomach hurt to think about…

L120 is missing!
:(

EXCUSE ME WHILE I SCREAM. THIS IS 39483094830 KINDS OF NOT OKAY. 

If the dolphins at the nursery at seaworld had this much concrete space they would be doing this. They constantly beach themselves there. And when I say constantly i mean constantlyyyyyy

:’(

It’s very highly disturbing that they’re beaching themselves in the first place, but what made me sick was how much they’re moving and flopping against the concrete.

This is what you fucking support, pro-caps. When are you gonna get it???

"Don’t worry, after that the trainer came in and pushed the dolphin back into the pool." Yeah just so the dolphin can beach his or herself again. And again. And again and again for the rest of their miserable lives.
