Tilikum - 7/31/14
For those of you wondering how Tilikum was today, I couldn’t really tell you. I was there all day (again) and this was the max zoom on my camera from the stadium seats. They were about to do the “splash” section of the show and I honestly feel like he thought he was supposed to perform that part but he didn’t get to. I visited UWV several times and never saw Tilly or Trua.

Whale whale whale I LOVE ORCAS
kamaliisea said: I always try to make a note that I’m aware I’m anthropomorphizing when I do it, I know you shouldn’t but sometimes its a good way to explain something. (Or Trua is just being a ham) (: lol
I don’t even mind if people do it, like I’ve done it these are smart animals that…
It’s okay for pro captivity people to call the whales silly and talk about how happy they are when they are with x whale, but I say corky is grieving the loss of her calves and OH MY GOD STOP ANTHROPOMORPHIZING. I mean, come on. I agree, they’re so intelligent and social and it’s really ignorant to think that they may not experience similar scenarios(like the death of a family member) and emotions as humans. They definitely do. I’m not a scientist and I never will be so I anthropomorphize them all the time. Whatever, sue me!
I’m transitioning to being vegan. I’ve cut every animal product from my diet but eggs, and I still hate vegan jerks saying everyone who reblogs a post against animal cruelty “better be vegan”. That type of shit is why people think all vegans are assholes. If you really want everyone to go vegan (which would be fantastic), try being fucking nice.

Today was a very tense day in the Feroe Islands.
From Captain Paul Watson’s facebook page:
"Sea Shepherd Crews Brave Nasty Conditions to Save an Entire Pod of Whales in the Faroes
A pod of 20 pilot whales, many with young calves entered Haraldssund Fjord between the islands of Kunoy and Bordoy in the Northern part of the Faeroe Islands this afternoon spurring the local whale killers to make ready to slaughter them.
But with the weather turning nasty they did not launch their boats feeling certain that the pilot whales would remain in the Fjord until the morning. The Grind was not officially launched meaning that Sea Shepherd volunteers did not break any laws by driving the whales back out to sea.
Lamya Essemlali however was able to get two of her small fast boats, the Thor and the Mike Galesi to the Fjord and despite the stormy conditions, they were able to drive the whales back out to sea using the same techniques the whalers use to drive them onto the beach.
The boat crews (three crew per boat) were working two miles off the shore.
Needless to say the local whalers are not happy. However the Sea Shepherd volunteers are indeed satisfied that the risks they took weathering the conditions paid off with the whales escorted to safety.
The pilots of the two small boats Jesse Treverton from the U.K. and Bastien Boudoire from France did an extremely competent job in a very dangerous situation. The whales were driven far out to sea and the boats have returned safely.”
We feel relieved for the moment but we are still alert.
This is so important what they are doing.
