Wildlife photographer Dafna Ben Nun, braved temperatures of minus 2 degrees to capture the beautiful creatures in the White Sea, north-west Russia. She even got kisses! She spent almost an hour in the water with the two female whales who were very curious and funny. Beluga whales are currently critically endangered in Alaska and numbers has been severely reduced in numbers over the last several decades [Article] [Video]
It is absolutely wonderful to see these Belugas in their natural environment, where they belong! Look at how happy they look!
Just FIVE days til Blackfish airs on CNN!!!
Hosting a Blackfish Party is a great way to get friends and family to see the movie, and will help spread the truth about cetacean captivity!!
Don’t support Macy’s until they stop supporting $eaWorld
A day in the life of Kshamenk.
Seriously just the way he doesn’t even move and just surfaces for air. Imagine standing in ONE PLACE for nearly your entire life.
This is horrific. So sad.
every ticket to Seaworld supports this
It galls me that people actually take their children here and show them that this kind of mistreatment is okay.
How can anyone look at this and think it is okay? It is NOT okay.
Kshamenk can barely move around because his tank is so small. How can anyone defend treating an animal this way?
If you think Kshamenk is happy you’re either stupid, in complete denial or both.
He’s aggressive, frustrated and lonely. Earlier this year he was so close to getting his freedom back, but unfortunately the release plan was dropped. People have however not given up on giving Kshamenk his freedom. If you too are disturbed by the (mis)treatment of Kshamenk then please sign this petition for his freedom.
and now Kshamenk serves as breeding bull for Seaworld… MM spent the money on a video screen. Not on Kshamenk.
I found that pretty appalling that they basically spent the money on a tv for the orca shows…
BREAKING: an organizer from Marineland Animal Defense has arrived on site at Marineland in Niagara Falls Ontario and will live in this bathtub for the next 3 days. There is no difference between his confinement to the tub and an orca in a tiny tank inside this facility.
Solidarity from Marineland Animal Defense for all animals held captive.
If you are in the area, please drop by and show some support! We hear they would really appreciate a warm drink and a few high fives. The tub will be on site and occupied for the entire closing weekend.
Wow! I’m pretty sure this guy is sitting with the same picture that a bunch of pro caps razzed me for posting!!
