I drew a thing today, this is for Lolita/Tokitae. 43 years in an illegally small pool is too long. Her family and her mother have been located in the ocean, and I do believe that she is a perfect candidate for release; if only the Miami Seaquarium would let her go.
I’m doing a short animation this year, entering it in Manchester Uni’s Animation14 and even if I get runner up, the video will be shown to about 1000 people. That’s got to make a difference somehow. I just hope I can do poor Tokitae justice. She deserves so much.
A baby dolphin (Probably Estuarine dolphin aka Boto Cinza Sotalia guianensis) was rescued on Friday,15 Nov. after getting stuck in a plastic bag near the Fort Itaipu, in Praia Grande, on the coast of São Paulo. The little baby was found by fishermen..
Fisherman notices that the baby was in trouble with a bag, they approached the animal and managed to pull it with a net. By bringing the baby into the boat, and quickly got it rid off the fucking plastic bag.
Upon being returned to the sea, the dolphin quickly jumped out of the water, as in a gesture of thanks to the fishermen.
Nothing gets me upset like trainers surfing on the whales and dolphins during shows. These animals already go through enough from being confined, they don’t need you to dominate them even more by standing on their backs and having them cart you around. The lack of respect is outrageous.
This needs to stop.PERIOD!
This is what you are supporting if you go to any marine park. Say no to abusement parks.
If you are unconcerned with the murder, exploitation and kidnapping of cetaceans you can go fuck yourself. I have zero interest in knowing anyone who supports whale and dolphin captivity.
im curious about the makeup of people involved in whale things on tumblr so here’s a little informal poll
put an “X” under the category you identify with
oh and here’s a smiling false killer whale to represent my thanks
