Hey, thanks for following me! ♥
No probs, great to meet you :)
Hey, honest question! Without captivity... people will have to go out to the ocean to see wild whales in order to gain respect for them, right? But, is this gas and noise pollution from the boats any better for the species than keeping a minority of them in captivity? I'm neutral on this and just wondering what you think.
I still stand firm in my belief that you don’t have to see whales in person to love them. I’ve never seen pilot whales or pacific white sided dolphins but they’re some of my favorite cetaceans. So no, people don’t necessarily have to go see them in the wild in order to respect them. I love Tsuchi the wild orca to death and I’ve never seen her.
Obviously boats and pollution are issues. But whale watching, when done correctly and responsibly, is not harmful. There’s spots on land that you can see orcas from, and kayaks are silent and product no pollution. You don’t have to use a boat to see wild whales!
Hi have to agree , but it is much better to see our ocean friends in the wild. The way in which the captive industry obtain there performance Dolphins is a barbaric ritual, which means taking them from the wild to live a life of slavery. Seeing them in the wild, while following few sensible rules is much better for the Dolphins and Whales in our oceans ..
