Should cetaceans be in captivity?
July 7 2017
After I made my Blackfish vs. SeaWorld video, it wasn't long before I wanted to make another. I started this one in June, so it took me over half a year of going back and revising, changing here and there. I'm a perfectionist, and made a few factual mistakes with tat other video, so I wanted to make sure I got this one right. This one is much more exhaustive but I'm not done with this subject yet. I say in the the beginning that I'm doing this with no agenda but only offering up the facts. One may argue it is biased because I begin with the myths about captivity being bad, and (more or less) disprove them. But still, I refrain from drawing any conclusions of my own in this video, it's simply the facts. The title is made to provoke and grab attention, as I don't think the "should" argument will get us anywhere. There's a lot of things we maybe "shouldn't" do because they're "unnatural", but that doesn't make them bad. The "should" question is thus a silly question that doesn't belong in any rational argument. The data for my calculations comes from here: http://cetacousin.com/captive/orca/allorcas.html (And it's also free for anyone to see where all dolphins in the world come from - no Taiji dolphins in the US, except for one FKW captured in 1987, before import was illegal.)
