@Calum5SOS Hi my name is column
To the average person, seeing an orca in captivity is a truly amazing sight. A huge black-and-white creature, totally dominated by their diminutive trainer (usually a good-looking girl), must be a visual treat. But to my mind, if you are going to teach people about ducks, you don’t show them a Donald Duck cartoon. Orca in captivity are not a true representation of orca in the wild. They are a caricature, a comic strip – only it’s far from funny – of the real thing. It isn’t educational to teach people that it’s okay to mistreat animals and keep them in inappropriate cages without social, mental or physical stimulation. Showing people being ‘rocketed’ through the air on the end of an orca, or surfing an orca around a tank isn’t educational. Entertaining, no doubt. Money-making, for sure. Amazing to watch, absolutely. Educational, definitely not. Yes, some institutions make an effort at educating their audiences about the animals, but this is often out-of-date, extremely ‘filtered’ information which is superfluous to the ritz and glitz of the show.Visser, Ingrid.
