Last month The New York Times released an article where SeaWorld claims that they did not contribute to the decline of the Southern Resident orca population.
-
Let’s get one thing straight. The Southern Resident orcas, with 100+ individuals before the capture era, are endangered because of SeaWorld and other marine parks, and remain that way due to the lack of Chinook Salmon. Captures carried out by marine parks, including SeaWorld, removed up to 40% of the population, leaving just 70 whales by 1976. According to the Center for Whale Research, 45 Southern Residents were sent to marine parks around the world with most going to SeaWorld. By the time the Marine Mammal Protection Act was passed, 58 young Southern Resident orcas were captured.
-
SeaWorld states in the article “This population of orcas peaked in the late 1990s.” The Southern Resident orcas only stabilized for a few years as more female orcas became reproductively mature, however it was not nearly enough to rebound from the captures. If the young orcas were never removed the breeding pool would most likely be more genetically diverse. Because of the captures an estimated total of 45 animals were not born to the community. Added to the 45 captured orcas, this brings the total loss to the population to an estimated 90 animals. 
SeaWorld also states that they’ve donated money in order to help save the Southern Resident orca population... donating money will not save an entire population. With such a big influence they could be doing more than the bare minimum. They go on to claim that the research done in their parks help to better understand how to sustain wild orcas. SeaWorld’s breeding program has produced 28 hybrid orcas which lack both scientific and conservational value, therefor they cannot be accurately compared to genetically natural wild cetaceans.

A study has begun in New South Wales to determine whether or not the last five dolphins at Coffs Harbour's Dolphin Marine Magic can be retired to a seaside sanctuary. The findings of the feasibility study are likely to be announced by early 2019.
-
According to Jordan Sosnowski, the advocacy director of Action for Dolphins, “It will be netted off, it will be a very large area, and the dolphins can forage on the ocean floor, they can feel the ebb and flow of the ocean tide, and hopefully really learn to hunt for fish again.” Depending on the location of the sea pen, the dolphins may be visible to the public. Having the seaside sanctuary open to the public would help keep up the running costs. Surprisingly, the marine park is supporting the study stating "At the end of the day, it's the dolphins' welfare that we have first and foremost, and if the sea pens are a viable proposition, then obviously that will be a good environment for them to go into.” This study could have a global impact.

Killer whales often follow herring fishing boats, a learned behavior that the whales have acquired in order to get a free meal.

The stranded melon-headed whale found on the beaches of Indian Shores has died during rehabilitation at SeaWorld Orlando’s rescue facility.
-
According to Jon Peterson, the manager of SeaWorld Orlando’s rescue operations, tests revealed that the whale had parasites on its brain. Two weeks after the rescue the whale showed signs of lethargy, wouldn’t eat on his own, and could barely breathe. He was euthanized on August 3rd.

J50 Scarlet swimming alongside her pod mates J42 Echo, J16 Slick, and J36 Alki near San Juan Island. This video, taken August 9th, shows the severity of J50’s peanut head.
-
While very small and malnourished, she managed to keep up with her pod. Vancouver Aquarium’s veterinarians were able to conduct a visual assessment as well as obtain a breath sample to help asses any infections. They were also able to inject J50 with antibiotics through a dart. It has not yet been decided if they will provide J50 with live Chinook Salmon, but will be determined soon depending on the conditions and location of the whales.

Biologists, veterinarians, and other whale experts took stock on Thursday of what they know about the condition of J50 Scarlet, the juvenile female Southern Resident killer whale that has been seen in poor condition. They also discussed what other information they need to inform next steps.
-
Sightings indicate that the whale is emaciated and is sometimes lethargic in the water, but still has periods of activity, including feeding.  Analysis of a small sample of her breath did not definitively indicate an infection or illness, although it does not rule one out either. The scientists who have observed the whale agreed that she is in poor condition and may not survive.
-
Endangered Southern Resident killer whales are critically endangered, now numbering only 75 animals, the fewest in more than three decades. NOAA Fisheries has been working with partners to implement an action plan addressing the three main threats to the whales: availability of prey, vessel traffic and noise, and contaminants.
-
Experts agreed during a conference call on August 2nd to focus efforts over the next few days on obtaining better photographs of the whale and conducting a veterinary health assessment to better track her condition and evaluate a white patch behind her blowhole that may be a symptom of infection. They will also try to obtain fecal samples and possibly a breath sample if there is an opportunity, which could help identify the cause of her condition. That would better inform a decision on whether biologists could or should take any further action to help or treat the whale.
-
The experts on the call convened by NOAA Fisheries will confer again as new information is collected over the next few days. We will continue to provide updates as they are available.

NOAA is marshaling an emergency response team to help J50 Scarelt, a member of the endangered Southern Resident killer whale population. This plan will include feeding J50 live chinook salmon dosed with medicine.
-
Earlier this week NOAA obtained a blowhole sample from the starving 4-year-old orca. The initial results revealed pathogens but not an infection or illness. J50 Scarlet is extremely emaciated and has lost 20% of her body weight this past month. She also has a severe case of peanut head, a sign of malnourishment. The loss of J50 would be devastating to the Southern Residents as she is a future breeding female.
-
NOAA has obtained the necessary permits and will continue to monitor J50 to determine the best route to take while keeping their methods as natural as possible. This comes after the loss of J35 Tahlequah’s newborn calf, who died shortly after birth. J35 is still carrying her deceased calf 11 days after the tragic loss.

Do not support Marineland!!! This is a photo of Zeus, a walrus at Marineland of Canada. As you can see, he is malnourished beyond recognizability of what a healthy walrus SHOULD look like. Cruel treatment of animals like this is unacceptable.

On July 31st, 2018, Kevin Sweeney uploaded a video to YouTube showing the aftermath of one of @SeaWorldOrlando’s dolphins jumping out of the tank.
-
The incident took place at Dolphin Nursery, where it is common for young dolphins to jump out of the tank. Shortly after the dolphin jumped out of the tank, SeaWorld employees closed the exhibit and instructed guests to move away from the area.
Luckily the dolphin was safely returned to the water. It is unknown if the dolphin sustained any injuries during the incident. This is not the first dolphin to jump out of it’s tank at SeaWorld. In fact one of SeaWorld’s bottlenose dolphins jumped out of its tank in 2013.

Un classique d’enfance 🐬🐋

Un classique d’enfance 🐬🐋 @niagarafallsontario
Loro Parque released a 6 minute video full propaganda and lies. Come to find out, Chuck Tompkins, the man in the video is the corporate curator of animal behavior for SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment... he’s also the man that claimed Dawn was responsible for her death.
Two statement stuck out to me during the video...
1) “Morgan is thriving”
2) “Loro Parque’s social structure is good”
It seems that he has forgotten about quite a few incidents so I figured I’d remind him.
-
Slide 1:
• A video emerged in April 2016, of Morgan slamming her head against the gate to the point where the noise echoed through the stadium.
-
Slide 2:
• In June 2016, Morgan beached herself on the slide out for 10+ minutes which could be dangerous as cetaceans are not built to be on land for long periods of time. Morgan supposedly beached herself to avoid an attack from her pod mates.
• A second video emerged in June 2016, of Morgan beaching herself in one of the back pools during a performance on February 22, 2016. In the video Morgan was on the slide out for approximately 9 minutes.
-
Slide 3:
• Photo shows 1 Morgan attempting to avoid an attack from a pod mate.
• Photo 2 shows Morgan being rammed by one of her pod mates, Skyla.
• Photo 3 shows Morgan being rammed by two of her pod mates, Skyla and Kohana.
-
 Slide 4:
• One of Loro Parque’s orcas, Tekoa, is the poster child for excessive aggression in captivity. As seen in the photo above, Tekoa is covered in rake marks.
-
Slide 5:
• In 2006, Keto attacked Kohana, resulting in the injures shown above.
-
General facts:
• Since her arrival at Loro Parque, Morgan has been inflicted with more than 320 puncture and bite marks (all documented by photographs).
• Over a 77 hour period, 91 aggressive events were documented, all involving Morgan.
-
It is very clear that Chuck Tompkins’s statements are nothing more than lies and propaganda.
The rest of the video can be debunked upon request.

Earlier this year in May, Zhonghong Co. announced that SeaWorld would be opening up their first theme park in China. The park was to be located on Ruyi Island, an artificial island that is currently under construction off the coast of Hainan Island.
-
Due to financial woes such as low park attendance, it was revealed that SeaWorld could not meet their financial obligations forcing them to sell off the island complex where SeaWorld Haikou was to be built. A SeaWorld representative stated “We have no plans to open a SeaWorld park in China and, accordingly, have not made any announcements to that effect.” This statement seems to contradict previous statements by SeaWorld leadership.
-
SeaWorld Parks will be giving their quarterly earnings update on Monday, August 6th. It is likely that the company will be questioned about both Zhonghong and Thomas Cook.

This is my "It's going to be a good day" mug. Why? Because I say it is. Because when I look at this mug I remember when we went to #marinelandcanada and their giant adorable heads were bobbing up and down out of the water. With their chubby faces. And then one spat water all over the kids. That was a good day.  Sometimes in a herd of shitty days you just have to claim that THIS 👇 is going to be a good day. I try to start off every morning with my 'This is going to be a good day' mug and if it turns into something different #wellatleastitried #dbt

Not only has SeaWorld participated in the captures that have pushed the Southern Residents to near extinction, but they’ve also failed miserably to try to help them.
-
SeaWorld has a huge influence yet they’ve shown time and time again how little they actually care. SeaWorld will do what’s best for themselves and jump on any endangered animal bandwagon that comes around just to profit off of it. I’m not here to disregard the (small amount of) money that SeaWorld has donated, I’m simply here to point out the fact that donating money will not save an entire species. If you compare the $1.5 million that SeaWorld has donated, to their revenue, it’s shameful.
-
With their influence, SeaWorld could aid salmon recovery efforts in California, Oregon, and Washington. They could also encourage political leaders to vote for the removal of the Snake River Dams that block the salmon migration paths. Not only that but SeaWorld could develop an educational presentation to teach their millions of guests to reduce the use of chemicals which contaminate waterways. They could join corporate partners like grocery stores and restaurant chains to discourage them from purchasing and selling farm raised salmon. They could also open up a hatchery to help replenish the Chinook Salmon population. All of these options and they haven’t done a single one. How is anyone going to sit here and defend this? Helping save the Southern Resident orca population would be a win for the whales, the environment, and SeaWorld.

More bad news for J Pod and the SRKW
-
According to Ken Balcom from the Center for Whale Research J35 “Tahlequah” (b. 1998) gave birth to a calf yesterday (July 24). Unfortunately the calf died within a half-hour of its birth. The death of a calf is devastating for the endangered Southern Residents who remain at 75 individuals.
-
Tahlequah was seen carrying the dead calf for “hour upon hour” and refused to let her go. The dead calf occasionally slipped off her and sink, at which time Tahlequah would dive down and retrieve the carcass.
-
The Southern Residents have not had  a successful pregnancy in three years. It is estimated that from 2007 to 2014 up to two-thirds of pregnancies were lost. The survival and birth rates of the Southern Residents are correlated with the abundance of salmon and mainly the abundance of their preferred prey, Chinook salmon, which has been extremely low i recent years.
-
They were also able to get a breath sample of J50 “Scarlet” and this will be tested to diagnose if she is ill.
-
Biologist Deborah Giles, said that dispite being almost 4 years old, Scarlet still has the size of a 1-year-old. “In my opinion she is definitely not getting enough to eat.It will be a miracle if she survives.”

According to Ken Balcomb from the @centerforwhaleresearch, J35 “Tahlequah” gave birth to a calf today. Unfortunately, the calf passed away shortly after birth. The death of such a young whale is devastating for the critically endangered Southern Resident orca population. The population remains at 75 individuals among the three pods.
-
This is the second recorded calf to be born to the Southern Resident orca population since 2015. Both calves died.

According to Ken Balcomb from the @centerforwhaleresearch, J35 “Tahlequah” gave birth to a calf today. Unfortunately, the calf passed away shortly after birth. The death of such a young whale is devastating for the critically endangered Southern Resident orca population. The population remains at 75 individuals among the three pods. - This is the second recorded calf to be born to the Southern Resident orca population since 2015. Both calves died.

In March 1983, SeaWorld applied for a permit to capture 100 killer whales from Alaska and California over a 5-year period, one again showing their lack of concern for wild orca populations, conservation, and preservation.
-
The permit, issued on November 1st 1983, allowed up to 10 wild-caught killer whales to be kept permanently and 90 temporarily for research purposes. However SeaWorld’s permit became void after they refused to do an environmental impact report regarding the wild orcas and follow the guidelines laid out before them in the conditions of the capture permits. SeaWorld stated that it was unnecessary to do the report that was being asked of them to preform, demonstrating their lack of care and disregard for wild populations.

Such great crowds - love how popular the shows are! 🐬 🐳 #marinelandcanada #niagarafalls
Had an interesting time at Marineland today. Since each girl wanted to sit with me on the ride we had to go in shifts. As I was helping lulu to the side (which a wonderful employee assisted) an older guy sat beside my eldest on the ride and even when she politely told him that I was coming back he refused to move and said it was his seat. She ran out of her seat crying and scared. I went back to confront the man that scared her and when I told him that he shouldn’t speak to a young girl like that his response was that he could speak to her anyway he likes.  Such a disrespectful person and angry soul to not let me sit with my daughter when I explained that I was by myself with two kids and I was in line but we were kid swapping as per the suggestion of the employee. So I decided to take this experience and show my girls that one mean person doesn’t have to ruin your day. We went to customer service and gave a glowing review on the two workers who tried to help. Just because one person is a bad seed doesn’t mean that you have to rude as well. #marinelandcanada #kindnessovermeanness #lifelessons

Today, SeaWorld Orlando rescued a melon-headed whale that was found stranded in Clearwater Beach, Florida. The whale was transported to SeaWorld’s rescue & rehabilitation center.
-
According to SeaWorld, “the whale doesn't appear to have external injuries and is able to swim on his own.” SeaWorld also stated that “the whale's treatment includes antibiotics and fluids, along with blood work and other diagnostic tests to determine the next steps in the recovery plan.”

Haichang Ocean Park Holdings acquired four killer whales for the Chinese marine park and housed them in a temporary holding facility at Dalian Tiger Beach (Laohutan) Ocean Park while its construction is completed. Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park’s grand opening is set for September 28, 2018, just 10 weeks away!

This young orca was once roaming free with its family. Now he or she has been reduced to cheap entertainment. It’s truly sickening but this is the harsh reality of what happens when you support this industry. Cut the demand. Don’t buy a ticket.

Signs of fraud, misuse and false information provided by commercial organizations and company executives, prompts Russian authorities to begin an investigation into the 2012-2015 catch and illegal sale of 7 wild orca from Russia to China. Their intentions to use wild orca for "educational" and "culteral" purposes only, is also being scrutinized.

In the last 5 years 19 orcas and more than 200 belugas were captured in Russia and sold to China. New captures are planned to resume this year.

How lucky I am to be able to spend some time with this incredible creature ❤️🐳 #marinelandcanada #orca #kiska
Blinded by the chlorine in their tank, these #seals swim in circles and lie on land with their eyes firmly closed. Born Free USA Senior Program Associate, Barry Kent MacKay, visited #marineland in Ontario, Canada earlier this month. Read his report: bit.ly/marinelandseals

SeaWorld’s involvement in wild cetacean captures: Taiji Dolphin Drives (Part 3 of 3)
-
In 1983, SeaWorld applied for a permit to import two wild caught false killer whales from Kamagowa SeaWorld. This further proves that SeaWorld was involved and profited from the Taiji dolphin drives.
-
Teri and Suki were both captured in Taiji in February 1983, and imported to SeaWorld San Diego in 1984. Not only does this prove that SeaWorld was involved with captures, it also solidifies Don Goldsberry as a former, formal employee of SeaWorld Inc, listed as director of collecting, which the marine park has previously denied.
-
SeaWorld has had 14 wild caught false killer whales in the past. All 14 of those animals are from Japan. The 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th slides are the emails between Kamagowa SeaWorld and SeaWorld Inc.
