My Reflection

Orca-at-Seaworld-in-Orlando-Florida

Just last summer (2012) I went to the SeaWorld Park Orlando, where Tilikum still performs shows. The show with the Orca Whales was very entertaining. I found it so incredible that these animals are so large and beautiful. It did not even occur to me at the time that animals like these do not belong in captivity, especially when they were taken out of the wild for no reason. Looking back to my visit to the marine park, I feel slightly disgusted that I paid to see these animals exploited in shows for entertainment. SeaWorld has given the impression that Orca Whales are these cuddly and happy animals. The documentary challenges this concept and shows these animals for what they are which are intelligent and majestic animals that need to live in the wild.
