The new Gibraltar baby is not even a month old and already shows its playful and independent side under the watchful eye of its mother Corsica (Oo_Gib_018)! :)

I would like to see somebody go to SeaWorld and ask children there who participate in their programs and interactions whether or not they’d like to be a SeaWorld trainer/work at SeaWorld or be a scientist.
My guess is a majority of them would say trainer.
Southwest Airlines and SeaWorld Entertainment are ending their 25-year-old marketing partnership, officials with both companies said Thursday, as the airline has been urged by animal rights activists to terminate the relationship.
(don’t worry, we’ll be back to your regularly scheduled ninja turtles programming soon)

Recently I’ve been reading extensively about Marineland Canada, a place I used to really enjoy visiting and whose animals are dear to my heart (Ontarians all know the “Everyone Loves Marineland” ear worm commercial!). Recently, after a lot of a research (and not being 13 any more) my stance on whale and dolphin captivity has changed significantly, where I no longer support it and don’t believe these animals, with all their self-awareness and smarts, do well there at all.
Marineland’s a prime example because Marineland, it turns out, is a literal whale death trap.
Man, I forgot how many whales Marineland used to have.
Some beautiful photos of Russian orcas! I got a waterproof camera for my birthday, and if I had the opportunity I would SO take it out and try to get some underwater shots of killer whales!
