Will we never learn

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Business can be tortuously slow during these Winter months.....plenty of time to trawl the internet & I came across this trailer for a movie called 'Blackfish.' It tells the story of Tilikum, a performing Orca that killed several people while in captivity. Its director/producer, Gabriella Cowperthwaite, compiles shocking footage & emotional interviews to explore the creature's extraordinary nature, the species' cruel treatment in captivity, the lives & losses of the trainers & the pressures applied by the multi-billion dollar sea park industry.

Judging by the trailer, Blackfish looks like it will make us think long & hard about why it is us supposed highly evolved human species seem to always screw up big time when we mess with the natural order of the planet.

Why do we think a wild animal head looks better mounted to a wall than roaming free, the magical colour of a piece of coral would look better in our home than the reef it came from, that something as magical as a wild & free whale should be corralled for our viewing pleasure. We will never learn!!

Follow the link there to the back story that inspired the making of the film.  It gives a much broader insight into the whole shameful industry.
