EXTREMELY HUGE FILE if you are going full sized. This is set to an A1 poster sized resolution.
Second in my new series of posters and documents that I am creating to show the truth about the captive industry.
SeaWorld constantly claims they 'care' and what they do is all for the best of animals worldwide. They regularly point to JJ as their prime example.
Truth is, JJ's story was as much mistreated and misrepresented by SeaWorld as any other 'truth' they claim.
Meanwhile, Keiko is constantly downtrodden and claimed to be a failure by both the parks and their supporters.
So, I wanted to create something here, to show a difference between the two, so you can see who truly cared about who they were releasing...
Before you comment, think twice.
I don't care if you are pro-captivity.
This is facts about the animals presented.
Arguing the point of pro-captivity is a pain and I do not care for it on my art. I have had threats and abuse slung at friends and family before and will not tolerate it here.
If you do not agree to this DO NOT COMMENT. It's that simple.
It's fine to have a discussion, but if you are simply going to bash and call it or me things, then keep it to yourself.
Finally, a great big thank you to James, who assisted with this, and everyone else who has assisted in anyway. You all know who you are and I thank you.
Keiko was also taken from those same waters and family when he was two years old. The challenge was finding his actual birth pod because there weren't reports of the various pod types back in those days.
I love orcas, they are smart, social and great predators able to take down whales and sharks, they´re hunting tecnics are a true show , not the show that the parks make them do
Release the orcas on captivity would actully show that they actully care about them, after all Sea World and Loro Parque are just a meaning of slavery to orcas and dolphins, Sea World and Loro Parque only know how to hurt these animals and they say "we care about them" and after Blackfish they just play victim
We´re on 2015 the science change and science, love and i mean true love to these animals could help to release these animals from that tanks and find a way to teach them to be wild animals and also find the way to return them to their families
That said, those facts about JJ are just... Awful D: I hope she's okay out there ;A; (I also knew from the time it was announced that he'd died, HOW Keiko had died, which was something they couldn't help in time. The idea that SeaWorld is calling that a FAILURE, when any wild-born and -raised whale could die from pneumonia without us ever even knowing, is just disgusting.)
If people consider Keiko a big success, which he was, then they may be expected to do the same with their animals.
Hence they spin it to make it seem like he was a failure.
I have heard that the Oregon Coast Aquarium was the only aquarium who would take Keiko in from Mexico because of the PR nightmare. They took him because they were a brand new aquarium and had plenty of room to build his tank and had no idea of the politics involved.
This was before it was decided to start citing sources so I don't actually have the full lis anymore I'm afraid.
