The Water. The Animals. The Mysteries. The Adventures. The Freedom. <3
An orca calf cries as its taken away from its mother to be sold to a marine park. Think of this sound when you’re standing in underwater viewing feeling like that whale loves you and wants to be around you. Wild orca captures are still very real.
Reblogging for new followers because I feel this is so important.
This is what Corky, Ulises, Kasatka, Katina, Kanduke, Kenau, Tilikum, Lolita, Hugo, Gudrun, Kiska, and all the other wild-caught orcas went through when they were young. It is traumatizing. It is violent. It still happens. And supporting any park that holds these animals captive ensures that it will continue.
Oh my god I can hear it’s little voice shake, it’s actually crying like how when we’re upset and we try talking we shake and crack. I feel like it’s human almost, I may have cried.
