Millions of people visit marine parks like SeaWorld every year. They pay to come ride the roller coasters, visit the polar bears, pet the sting rays, and see the dolphin shows. There is one animal there, however, that seems to be at the center of everyone’s attention, and that is the killer whale Shamu. The big black and white whales captivate audiences with their size, power, and striking coloration. Ultimately, SeaWorld’s mascot is the orca and star of the show. However, after the show is over and everyone goes home, not many people give a second thought to what happens after the stadium is empty and the lights are turned out. After all, the animals seem happy to perform for their daily audiences, but are they? After the release of the documentary Blackfish, which examines the lives of orcas in captivity, many people are beginning to ask that exact question.
Winter is a tail-less dolphin that lives at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium in Clearwater, Fla. In 2005, she lost her tail after getting caught in the buoy line of a crab trap and was forced to rely on her human rescuers to survive. That changed in 2007 when scientists fitted her with a remarkably designed artificial tail. Today, her infectious enthusiasm and good spirits are an inspiration to countless human amputees who come to visit her every year. The aquarium has established a program that allows amputees to visit for free.

News from Pimentel, Chiclayo - Perú
On the shore we saw dead jellyfish and a dolphin’s head — discarded on the wet sand. The scene was really depressing.
Last year, more than two thousand marine species were found dead along the beach. The Institute of Peruvian Sea Investigation claimed they died from natural causes.
A few days ago I read a short article about dead dolphins, turtles, sea lions and jellyfish strung across the Peruvian shoreline. Our Institute of Peruvian Sea Investigation is testing the water determine the real cause of death. I expect that the Institute will write that the sea denizens died of natural cause.
I do not know why they will lie or for whom they will falsify the cause of death. We know the answer: pollution and petroleum that is drilled out of the sea.
Governments need to be cautious and work on laws that protect our natural resources. If we continue destroying them, there will be nothing for our future generations.
Small steps, like picking up rubbish in front of people who throw it away and teach them to do so. It may not be a big thing compared to all the trash that litters this world, but at least it will be one step towards saving our planet.
“We are the environment. The world is literally one biological process. The trees are our lungs. Look at the Amazon River system next to a human cardiovascular system, look at corals or trees and look at our lungs, you literally cannot tell the difference. They’re the same. So when we destroy our environment, we’re effectively destroying ourselves.”
