By now you’ve probably heard of the documentary ‘Blackfish’. Yes, I may be ‘jumping on the bandwagon’ by writing about Blackfish but I really do think that it is important and if I prompt even one more person to watch it then this has been a success. Everyone should watch it before they even think about entering Seaworld or a similar thing (i.e. swimming with dolphins etc). NETFLIX are supporting it by featuring it and promoting it on their site which is simply brilliant and it has gained a huge audience. If you have not seen Blackfish yet I highly suggest you do because it’s a real game-changer and will really open the eyes of even the biggest animal-hater in the world. It truly is a work of art. Basically, it tells the story of what Seaworld and some other similar brands have done to Orca whales and showcases the torment that these Orcas are put through in their lives in captivity. Perhaps why the film has gained such a significant audience is because it goes rather in depth and shows footage of the famous Orca attacks at Seaworld from which people actually lost their lives which Seaworld attempted to cover up as ‘accidents’.
Many celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and Ariana Grande have taken the pledge never to go to Seaworld or support it in any way after seeing ‘Blackfish’. You can take the pledge too here. I have and so have thousands of others. Be sure to watch the film first though, believe me, it’s worth while.
Basically, GO AND WATCH BLACKFISH PEOPLE!!! (and then tell everyone you know to do the same).
