  • I take the position that it is safe and unharmful to include killer whale shows in aquariums.

    I know this because in the last four years Seaworld has spent over $70 million on their orca's habits after the death of Orca trainer Dawn Brancheau. Another example to support my claim is in the last 50 years Seaworld has only lost 14 of their Orcas this, this shows that they are treating their Orcas fairly and are keeping them healthy. Plus as Sophie Scardina quoted "the Orcas are treated humanely". Also, Orcas are not only used for entertainment but also used so that scientists can study them up close the more we know about Orcas the more we can help them. Next after the film Blackfish, many became angry they felt that Orcas were not being treated fairly but no one really knows were Blackfish got their information so no one can confirm that any of it is true to add to that Seaworld also is currently trying to please costumers by building a bigger pool it will be 50 ft long and 350 ft wide, this is the largest pool made for Orcas in history. Another example is many aquariums are building tanks in the ocean so that the Orcas can feel more at home plus the tanks in the ocean are much bigger than the ones Orcas would be kept in otherwise. Currently, there are no laws prohibiting the captive display of Orcas. Seaworld has also increased safety measures to better protect both Orca and trainer. The Orca shows inspire many people to care more about marine life. Also, Orca shows can create a bond between Orca and trainer that can reduce the risk of loneliness and depression. This is why I take the position that it is safe and unharmful to include killer whale shows in aquariums.

  • Killer whale shows should be banned

    Separation from family.They could attach out of anger/fear scared of too many people when they use echo location they could think the boat is food or a predator . They could have sharp teeth and could hurt someone. They can't live freely if pool of water. Only be captured if hurt or need help

  • Ban the shows

    The tanks are small, their family is sepertaed, they get scared esiar they dont get the oppertunitys to live life free like we do ban the shows and let them live life like we do they need freedom if they dont let orcas go then we wont let them go.

  • They just need to change their ways

    All I think is that they can change the way that they are using them they should only capture them when they are hurt or need help and since they can not put them back in the wild they can use them for show but make the tanks much bigger because i the wild they go 100 miles per day and they should feed them way more food because they are not being fare with what they feed them every day

  • Entertaining and Educational

    Sea World is constantly raising awareness for conservation and provides rescues to many animals. Some animals would not make it in the wild or would be killed from environmental forces or human hand. It is hypocritical to want to ban an animal in a tank when you have a pet in a yard or small apartment for the majority of its life.

  • One word, Insecurity.

    How insecure would you feel if you were taken from your home, the orcas can bite the cage bars and break their teeth to free them selves, also the orcas can kill the trainers from insecurity like tilikum, he killed one of the trainers by biting them and dragging her into the water so he can be free.

  • I hate CAPTIVITY

    I want the whales to be free since, the whales in SeaWorld have been crammed in tiny tanks and then they get frustrated then start trying to kill people. Another thing is that when they get depressed in their tiny tanks then they start committing suicide which is really sad...

  • The Orcas Suffer...

    I know this because these orcas live their live in tiny tanks and swim in circles. Plus captive orcas live up to 15 yrs but wild ones live 30-200 yrs, this is a sign that they are suffering in captivity/Seaworld. There should be no more orca shows anymore today, ever!

  • I say No

    Because they're taking them away from their natural habitat. After what happened in 2010 with the killer whale in Sea World, I think it's bad for them and any animal. They should be in the wild and living free from civilization and people. We should think more of nature's creatures

  • Killer Whales aka Orca should be banned from show because it mean and cruel

    Whales who live in the wild have a longer life span because it the ocean not a giant pool.Would you like it if someone or something kept you in a cage or pool for your whole life.When the killer whale do not swim enough mile every day they will get frustrated.That is the reason why a killer whale kill Dawn

  • Free the whales

    The whales will be killing people! Who wants to get killed? These animals are only for entertainment purposes where they are. Amusement parks just want money for these shows. They don't care about the poor animals. Please, come together and help us free the whales. They may be entertaining, but they are just like us and deserve a free life.

  • They just need to change their ways

    All I think is that they can change the way that they are using them they should only capture them when they are hurt or need help and since they can not put them back in the wild they can use them for show but make the tanks much bigger because i the wild they go 100 miles per day and they should feed them way more food because they are not being fare with what they feed them every day

  • It is shameful

    Keeping animals such as orcas in captivity is downright cruel. It is one thing if they are recovering from injury in a safe place before being returned to the sea, but it is just wrong to keep them for our entertainment. They need to be able to swim freely in order to stay healthy.

  • Free the whales

    If the circus can retire their elephants, SeaWorld ought to retire their orca population. It is unacceptable to have intelligent, active creatures confined so unnaturally and so cruelly simply for the entertainment of a handful and the enrichment of a few. Put the executives in black and white suits and have them jump through hoops from a tiny pool if the revenue is that critical.

  • No, they should not.

    The Orca shows at Sea World are explotative of the animals, and the conditions that they live in are cruel and shorten their life spans. Although the shows are entertaining, Sea World does not have a good track history for the way they treat Orca's and these shows need to stop.
