SYLVIA EARLE: MY WISH: PROTECT OUR OCEAN
Mrs Sylvia Earle (78) (TED Talk: My wish: Protect our oceans 2009) living legend is an oceanographer, explorer, author and lecturer with a deep commitment to research through personal exploration.  Has spent the past five decades exploring the seas. During that time she has seen a sharp decline in the number of ocean life and biodiversity - and a sharp increase in the number of oceanic dead zones and oil drilling sites.  
Netflix has an original doc Mission Blue on the life and work of Earle. you should see it.

Between 1950 and 2014, has died the half of coral reefs of the oceans (by multiple reasons)

Between 1950 and 2014, Pacific bluefin tuna, sharks and North Atlantic cod  were caught to near extinction.  Between 5% and 10% remain

Dead zones are hypoxic (low-oxygen) areas in the world’s oceans and large lakes, caused by “excessive nutrient pollution” from human activities coupled with other factors that deplete the oxygen required to support most marine life in bottom and near-bottom water. In 1975, there was ONE documented dead zone. In 2014, there are over 500.

Oil drilling in the Gulf Coast does not start and end with the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster of 2010 But the practice started more early than you think. In 1947, there was only one oil drilling site. In 2014, there are more than 30,000.

I knew I matured when I realized every situation doesn’t need a reaction. Sometimes you just have to leave people to continue to do the lame shit that they do.

I watched The Cove last night for the first time in a few years, and as usual, this statement jumped out at me. We all know our world is full of tragedies and injustices. We may disagree on how to prioritize them, but we know they’re there. So the question is, do you want to stand up, get involved, use your voice, and be part of the solution? Or do you want to close your eyes, plug your ears, and sit idly by? 
There is no in-between.

Every pro-captivity argument has been either they won’t get to see the animals when they go to an aquarium/sea world, or it’s too expensive to see them in the wild, or they want to be a trainer and now won’t be able to get in the water/swim with them if they’re freed. Every person for captivity of orcas and animals in general are supporting it for their own gain. They are under the assumption that these creatures are on this Earth to serve us, and be under our control.

They aren’t. Get that through your head. They owe nothing to us. If anything we owe them everything since we are those going into their home, disrupting their habitat, and taking them away. It’s sick what we’ve done to them.

Honestly, get over yourself if you support captivity. We aren’t gaining new information about these animals being held in our possession. Nothing positive is coming out of it except self-serving people being pleased by seeing animals in (way-too-small) cages. I’ve kept my opinion in for a while, and frankly I’m sick of seeing people defending companies like SeaWorld because they want to see these animals when they visit. Animals don’t have any obligation to us.
