Ive never been a supporter of captivity although id love to be close to them just as the trainers were or so they thought....I Recently watched Blackfish , I knew their were incidents and one death that was televised but during the film tears slipped past my cheaks not because I cry at every little thing but because it has taken so many lives trainers and orcas...Tilikum mistreated by trainers (starved) if he didnt do a perfect behavior, mistreated by the other whales as he was the only male...

I think we need to keep some in captivity or one day there will be none. Just need to make bigger tanks!

O planeta terra tem lugar suficiente para deixar estes animais lindos viverem em seu habitat. Sua casa e sua liberdade sem ninguém os maltratando nem os matando....eles foram criados por Deus e com certeza são eles os que mais merecem respeito e viver com dignidade...cada um no seu lugar....o homem tem a mania de se meter aonde não é permitido, tem mania de se achar demais, se temos um lugar neste mundo eles devem ter tb, pois somos apenas seres humanos em desenvolvimento, não somos donos...

I saw the documentary "Blackfish" at the Sydney Film Festival about how Orcas kill their trainers because they are severely mistreated in captivity

Sorry to disagree here but releasing these animals into the wild is certain death for them, this has already been proven on one occasion but we seem to forget this as it does not interest us. I am a Marine Biologist and have worked with these an animals for over 10 years, they are well looked after and recieve more attention than most peoples pets.

I am a Marine Biologist and have worked with these an animals for over 10 years, they are well looked after and recieve more attention than most peoples pets. Lets be fair and ask all dog and cat owners to release their pets into the wild, dog and cats used to enjoy enormous amounts of free space and now are restricted to our homes, left unattended for long periods of time and given irregular exercise periods... all for the enjoyment of a few people. At least in Sea World and other marine mammal parks the animals are seen by millions of people each year who otherwise would not get the opportunity to know these animals, and as often said we cannot protect what we do not know! All parks also have education programs and make significant contibutions to the protection of these animals in the wild.
