Transcript of Sea World and Animal Cruelty

Physical description
All cetaceans share a number of similarities:
Fusiform body.
Paddle shaped front limbs.
Vestigial hind limbs.
Absence of protuberances on their body.
Internal organs adapted to water pressure.
The main differences are:
They have teeth.
Asymmetrical skull.
They live in huge schools
Most of them are carnivorous
The main differences are:
They have whalebones.
Almost symmetric skull.
Diet based on krill.
The dark side behind the aquariums
Sea World and Animal Cruelty
What's animal cruelty?
from 1970 to 2000 there have been about 35 attacks in different water parks, but not all attacked coaches died.
Recorded Attacks
Wildlife vs Captivity
Cetaceans' captures
What's a cetacean?
Cetacean is an order of marine mammals which includes whales and dolphins.
The net is then closed around the animals and pulled very tightly at the bottom, trapping the animals in a “purse.” The animals thrash around and may become entangled or drown. They are then manhandled into slings and hauled on board a capture vessel or herded into shallow sea cages.
Sea World and Animal Cruelty
The Dark Side behind the aquariums
Animal Cruelty is the human activity of suffering or harm upon non-human animals, for another purpose other than self-defence or survival.
Why have we chosen this topic?
We discovered it at Peta.org, and we though that it was a topic that people should be aware of.

There are several different techniques for capturing cetaceans, depending on the species and the depth of the water. The most popular capture method is by seine net.
A large fish net that is positioned vertically in the water column with weights at the bottom and floats at the top. The seine is used in conjunction with a high speed boat or boats to chase a pod of animals into shallow waters and encircle them with the net.
Capture Methods
On February 24, 2010, the orca Tilikum killed Dawn Brancheau, an experienced trainer, at SeaWorld Orlando. SeaWorld officials confirmed that Tilikum grabbed Dawn Brancheau by her ponytail and pulled her into the water, drowning her. Eyewitness trainers and audience members, however, stated that Tilikum dragged Dawn into the water by her forearm, near the end of the show. The autopsy determined that the trainer died of "multiple traumatic injuries and drowning". Tilikum was involved in two previous fatalities. See bullets February 20, 1991 and July 5, 1999.

Male blackfish can live up to 60 years and a female can live 90.
In captivity, they live an average of 20 years.
The diet of a black fish is based on:
Polar bears
Small whales
The diet of a blackfish in captivity is based on:
Frozen fish.
Vitamin supplements.

We think that no one should go to sea worlds, and so we contribute to cruelty cetaceans. These animals should be free and not trapped in small spaces and in bad conditions.
