The Necessity of Animal Captivity - Animal captivity is a much discussed issue for both its benefits and detriments to the animals. Many people view animal captivity as a harm and believe that it should be stopped; however, what is not taken into account is its benefits. Animal captivity aids both animals and humans in multiples ways, but the majority of help animal captivity offers is through preservation of animal species, and education benefits that zoos and aquariums represent to man. The preservation of animals must continue so that generations to come can not only benefit from what the animals have to offer for the ecosystems they thrive in, but so that the human race can continue to further its understanding of nature f...   [tags: Benefits, Detriments, Anilas, Captivity]

Whales in Captivity - “… building a tank the size of Rhode Island wouldn’t be large enough for a six-ton male killer whale such as Tilikum, an animal capable of swimming 100 miles a day,” states an anonymous whale expert. Whales have been in captivity since 1861 when P.T. Barnum displayed the first live whale that was captured in Canada. However, Barnum had no idea how to care for the mammal and it died after only a week in captivity. (Animal Legal and Historical Center, 2014) Being up close with killer whales could give us some clues about how they interact with each other, including physical behavior, their dialect, and how their pods work together as a family unit....   [tags: Killer Whales, Captivity, Ocean, Rhode Island]

Wild Animals Should NOT Be Kept in Captivity - It is said that in order to protect the wildlife, we need to be educated about the wildlife that inhabits our planet. As humans, and the superior species on Earth, we put exotic animals, aquatic and terrestrial, in zoos or aquariums where people can go to see them to learn more about them in order to protect them. It just so happens that by putting these animals into captivity, we are causing more damage to them, just as damage is occurring in the wild and more species are becoming extinct. Animals should not be held in captivity; it does not save them from going extinct, but helps kill them off....   [tags: Wild Animals in Captivity]

The Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson - “The Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson”, arguably the most famous captivity tale of the American Indian-English genre, is considered a common illustration of the thematic style and purpose of the English captivity narrative. As “the captivity genre leant itself to nationalist agendas” (Snader 66), Rowlandson’s narrative seems to echo other captivity narratives in its bias in favor of English colonial power. Rowlandson’s tale is easy propaganda; her depiction of Native American brutality and violence in the mid-1600s is eloquent and moving, and her writing is infused with rich imagery and apt testimony that defines her religious interpretation of the thirtee...   [tags: Indian Captivity Narratives]

Conflicting Cultures in Louise Erdrich's Captivity - Kidnapping colonists during the struggle for land in the early centuries of American history was a strong force influencing the images of Native Americans circulating among the Puritan pioneers. During these centuries, the battles between the natives and the Puritans cost thousands of lives on both sides, and countless stories in the forms of captivity narratives revealed truths and myths about the Native people. Although there were countless pieces of literature and propaganda published in this time period, the actual Indian captivity narratives have been narrowed down to works “that presumably record with some degree of verisimilitude the experiences of non-Indians who were captures by Ame...   [tags: Louise Erdrich Captivity Poem native Essays]

Zoos and Aquariums: A Barbaric Institution - The practice of keeping wild animals in a zoo or aquarium is looked at favorably in most aspects but what we fail to realize is that we have placed animals which at one point lived freely in wide open spaces into captivity. Society is assuming these animals are happy to be taken from their natural habitat and placed in pens and cages because they have every need handed to them. David Suzuki asked “What gives us the right to exploit other living organisms as we see fit?” (681). Through selfishness, people have justified zoos and aquariums to be an educational benefit to children, to help them learn about animals, their individuality and where they come from....   [tags: Animal Rights ]

Orcas in SeaWorld - As a child I loved going to SeaWorld to see “Shamu” and his performances. It was a magical place where I could go see one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet wave at me, splash me and even do a small dance.

Today, there are forty-five orcas in captivity with about half being born in confinement (“Killer Whales in Captivity”)....   [tags: killer whales, shamu]

SeaWorld's Orca Whales - The Orca or “killer whale” is the largest member of the dolphin family. Weighing up to six tons the Orca’s power and large size make it one of the fastest marine animals, reaching speeds up to 35 mph. Orca whale societies are pods of up to 40 individuals and all pods use hunting techniques close to what a wolf pack would use, but when in captivity Orcas do not have this freedom. In an Orca society, females are dominant, and many Orcas live with their mothers their entire lives. SeaWorld’s Orca shows should be illegal because captivity causes the Orcas too much stress, they are responding with violence among the others, themselves, and to human beings, and with OSHA’s bans captivity becomes...   [tags: Orca, Killer Whale, Dolphin Family, Sea Mammal]
