🐘Elephant riding is a popular tourist activity in Asia, do you know how these elephants are tortured for the men behind to make money? 💰In some Asian cultures, elephants are treated as domestic animals, young calves are taken away from their moms and tortured until their 'spirits are broken' and show complete obedience to humans 😢 If you want to get a closer touch with elephants, instead of riding them, you can visit an ethical elephant sanctuary, spend quality time with them, listen to the stories of these rescued elephants, and learn about the cruelty behind elephant riding. Love them, don't ride them🤗❤️🐘 📍@elephantnaturepark #noelephantriding #endanimalcruelty #asianelephants #animalsarefriends #animals #elephants #wildlife #elephantsantuary #thailandig #chiangmai #thaielephant #loveanimals #anticaptivity #vegan #veganism #plantbased #gogreen #veganhk #hkig #hongkong #compassionforall #nevertoolatetochange #weforvegan #純素 #純素主義

Swimming with dolphins is a popular tourist attraction for people who love animals. However, the captive dolphin industry is far more cruel than most people might think. • Bottlenose dolphins swim an average of about 18 miles every day in the wild, but can very well swim 100 miles in a day. They can hold their breath for about ten minutes and dive to incredible depths while playing and hunting for fish. Even if a dolphin is bred in captivity, their wild instinct and basic biological needs are still present. No tank can accommodate a dolphin’s biological need to roam, explore and hunt- basic activities which dolphins need to perform in order to thrive physically and emotionally. Captive dolphins often display zoochosis, a psychological condition common in animals who do not thrive in captivity. Common symptoms include floating listlessly on the surface of the tank and swimming repetitive circles out of frustration. • Dolphins have complex social hierarchies. Just like humans, they often get into disagreements. In the wild, dolphins can swim distances away from their families when they get frustrated (just as you might want to go for a walk to clear your head when you get in a fight with your family). In captivity they are constantly forced to be in close quarters, so when disagreements happen, frustration is taken out on each other physically. Most captive dolphins can be seen with “rake” marks covering their bodies- this is the result of frustrated and angry dolphins raking each other with their teeth. • Though wild dolphins use sonar to locate prey, in captivity dolphins’ sonar bounces back at them off the tanks’ glass walls, creating a disorienting “house of mirrors” effect. Dolphins are also intensely sensitive to noise pollution, and aquariums are full of the sound of gates clanging, loud filters, music, and humans talking. Seaworld even launches fireworks every summer! • In addition to all of this, captive dolphins’ lifespans are a fraction of their wild counterparts. These complex, intelligent, social animals live lives of deprivation, frustration and boredom when held captive. Be a responsible tourist and leave captive dolphins out of your vacation!

Here is another picture of one of the Alaskan Resident Orca I was able to meet while I was in Seward, Alaska. AD22 born 1993, Skana, male, likely brother of AD8. We caught up with this family just outside of Resurrection Bay, into the Gulf of Alaska. They were very spread out, far in to the Gulf, but we got tons of great looks at Skana here. He reminds me so much of Salish Sea Southern Resident J1 Ruffles, I miss seeing him, with the waves in his dorsal. So cool. Stay tuned for more Alaska pictures to come as I am very close to finishing editing. #whalewatching #salishsea #salishwhales #orcas #killerwhales #whales #family #pnw #pnwonderland #pacificnorthwest #pnwphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildandfree #anticaptivity #canon #canonphotography #hobbyist #hobbyistphotographer #pugetsound #justanotherdayinwa #sji #sanjuanislands #ilovewhales #caniworkhere #seward #sewardalaska #alaska #srkw

Today we had a film crew with us, filming for a documentary about life on the North Sea. We had to do a few things differently to get the perfect shot, but haven’t come across any animals yet. Felt weird being on camera, and I probably went a bit “Chandler Bing”! We will see... . . . . #marinemammalresearch #marineviologist #ecology #scotland #northsea #videographer #soundtech #marinemammal #letthembefree #anticap #anticaptivity #seaworldsucks

White killer whale “Mama Tanya” (C0210) has just been sighted in Russia’s Commander Islands! She was seen traveling with a group of regularly colored orcas. C0210 was first seen in 2009, several times again in 2010, but then not for many years. The Russian killer whale research team is delighted to encounter her doing well! “Mama Tanya” is not albino, nor is she the same individual as “Iceberg,” the famous white male orca. . Regrettably, “Mama Tanya,” “Iceberg,” and all other killer whales who pass through Russia are in immediate danger of capture. Russia’s government set a quota for up to 13 killer whales to be commercially captured in 2018 in the Sea of Okhotsk. Since 2012 (only 6 years ago), at least 20 killer whales have been captured there for aquariums and marine parks in Russia and China. The size of the wild population is not even known. Due to the rapidly growing captivity industry in Asia, Russia recently started capturing belugas and orcas from the wild, and is the only country to currently be doing so. The demand for new aquariums has been fueled by the decades of success and profitability in the United States, Canada, and Europe. As toothed whale captivity starts to fade in western countries, it is only just beginning in the east. Please do not buy a ticket where captive dolphins or whales are held; doing so incentivizes investors to build more marine parks. . Caption: @sevenseasoffreedom Images & info: @russianorca

🐬🐬 From @oceanadvocatenews on Facebook: UPDATE: We went to check in on Katina today. Although she seems to be improving, her dorsal fin definitely has permanent damage. Here are the updated photos. Also pictured is Malia, who is still suffering from some type of skin disorder. She has had these markings since January. #seaworldsucks #captivitykills #stolenfreedom #slaveworld #abusementpark #anticaptivity #dontbuyaticket #emptythetanks #blackfish #freedommatters #seaworld #animalrights #livevegan #veganactivism #vegansofig #animalliberation #choosecompassion

I love Alaska. Fin whales in Resurrection Bay!! It was amazing. We were hanging out with two humpbacks and off in the distance we see some spouts. Once we start getting a little closer I realize they they are not humpbacks at all, but rather fin whales.

Today we saw 5 harbour porpoise, including a new born. We returned to the harbour, and just as we went to pull in we heard a report of a bottlenose dolphin. So we turned round, and found 5 bottlenose travelling. At least 2 of them were recognised from the Southern Firth, meaning they have travelled a couple hundred miles. Really puts into perspective how restrictive captivity is - I could never support it. . . . . #dolphins #bottlenose #dolphin #wilddolphin #wilddophins #cetaceanresearch #cetaceans #crru #anticaptivity #anticap #wildandfree #scotland #scottishdolphins

It completely saddens me to share @emptythetanksworldwide newest update: . . Terrible news today. Despite public outcry the Russian government is allowing the wild capture of 13 orcas in 2018. They will also allow for wild belugas to be caught this year. These animals will be taken from their home and families in the ocean and be sold to marine parks. We still have a lot of work to do to end this cruel industry. #emptythetanks Stay tuned for ways to help. . . Via Dr. Naomi Rose's FB page: "Bad news, everyone. Despite overwhelming public opposition, the Russian government appears to have approved a quota for 13 orcas to be captured in 2018. There have been no legal captures for orcas for at least the past two seasons.The authorities have also apparently approved a quota for belugas (whose capture was also suspended), but I don't have numbers yet for them. I will post them when I do . . The Russian government does not recognize ecotypes nor does it have a decent population estimate (they claim there are 3000 orcas, all one population, in the Sea of Okhotsk). The orcas that are targeted in the Russian capture operation are mammal-eaters and may in fact number as few as 200-230 or so animals (based on the work of independent Russia researchers). That makes a quota of 13 about 5-6% of the population, which is clearly unsustainable (let alone traumatic and inhumane)." . . THIS IS FUCKING UNBELIEVABLE. IT'S 2018 & THESE FUCKERS ARE ABOUT TO STEAL 13 WILD ORCAS & GOD KNOWS HOW MANY WILD BELUGAS. THESE POOR ANIMALS ARE ABOUT TO GO THROUGH HELL & THEY HAVE NO CLUE. . WHY DO HUMANS THINK WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO THIS???? I AM BEYOND FRUSTRATED & FUCKING ENRAGED!!!! . . PLEEEASE DON'T BUY A TICKET TO SEE THESE ANIMALS CAPTIVE. BY GIVING YOUR MONEY TO THESE ESTABLISHMENTS YOU DIRECTLY FUND THEIR MISERY & SUFFERING. PLEASE USE YOUR HEART & NOT YOUR EGO . . THESE ANIMALS DESERVE SO MUCH MORE💔🐬 . . #iwillalwaysfightforthem #takethepledge #fuckcaptivity #bornfree #theydeservesomuchmore #dolphinproject #saynototheshow #animalslaves #captivity #anticaptivity #savethedolphins #russia #savethewhales #abduction #shameonyourussia #slaves #freedomispriceless #endanimalexploitation

So sorry I have been absent for a few days. I spent a long weekend in Alaska with very little WiFi. Took upwards of 6,000 pictures and I’m just getting through editing in between work days. Here is one Alaskan Resident Orca I was able to meet while I was in Seward, Alaska. AD22 born 1993, Skana, male, likely brother of AD8. We caught up with this family just outside of Resurrection Bay, into the Gulf of Alaska. They were very spread out, far in to the Gulf, but we got tons of great looks at Skana here. He reminds me so much of Salish Sea Southern Resident J1 Ruffles, I miss seeing him, with the waves in his dorsal. So cool.

It’s orca awareness month! In honor of my all time favorite animal, I will have prints of this guy available in which a portion of proceeds will be donated to Orca Network. Sadly, Russian government just approved the capture of 13 orcas and a number of wild belugas to be sold to marine parks in 2018 alone. These beauties don’t belong in concrete bathtubs. #orcamonth #orcanetwork #emptythetanks #anticaptivity #freelolita #wildandfree #artforacause #primawatercolordt #primawatercolors #decadentpies #endcaptivity #cetaceanrights #animalwelfare #beluga #freethedolphins #freethewhales #orcalove #killerwhale #friendsdontletfriendsgotoseaworld #fuckseaworld #southernresidentkillerwhales #animalrights #whaleart

The new season has begun! I am currently sat at the airport, awaiting my flight to Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿. There I will be working as a field research assistant/volunteer coordinator for the Cetacean Research and Rescue Unit for the third year. I am so excited to get going with this study of Killer Whales. Hopefully this year is much more successful than last years pilot study, and we get some great data on these amazing creatures. I can’t wait to get driving on the boat again - I feel so at home on the sea. The CRRU are taking on volunteers this year, for research assistant 2 week placements. These placements do cost, but they cover food, accommodation, research, AND you walk away a trained and certified Marine Mammal Medic! It is the most fun thing you’ll ever do, and you will see amazing sights - minke whales, bottlenose jumping around the boat, so many sea birds 🦅. If anyone wants any information, please contact me and I will direct you to the correct place, and tell you all about it. For now - I will try to post daily updates of what we have done for the day, to give everyone an insight into how awesome this project is! . . . . #cetacean #research #rescue #marinemammal #marinemammalmedic #dolphin #dolphins #killerwhale #killerwhales #orca #marineresearch #fieldstudy #cetaceanresearch #wildandfree #wilddolphin #wildwhale #freetilikum #freemorgan #freelolita #anticap #anticaptivity #letthembefree

I apologize in advance for the graphic nature of this photo, but it needs to be seen so that others can see what humans are doing to these sentient beings. This is the lifeless body of Hugo, the only companion to Lolita/Toki at the Miami Seaquarium, being lifted by a crane to be dumped into the Miami-Dade landfill after his death by brain aneurysm after repeatedly bashing his head into the tanks walls. I’m calling YOU out, @miamiseaquarium_!!!

Still busy re-photographing a lot of my items (in between a gloss session, gloss restock tomorrow!) but it's worth noting that not all items will be coming back. The shop is undergoing big changes atm and for some items, the ones in the shop now may be the last ones ever. Feel free to ask me if you're worried about a particular piece 🎀

Because of their skull structure, dolphins always sport a smile, even in death. If you truly love dolphins, you should never pay to swim with them or see them in captivity. You shouldn’t fund their suffering. #DontBuyATicket #EmptyTheTanks

Wild and free. The way it's meant to be. 🌍Kruger national park May 2018. 🦁Mommy and cub. There is no better feeling than seeing Lions in the wild. This is where they belong. In the captive breeding world, mothers will give birth and then if they are lucky, get to clean their cubs before they get ripped away. The moment they are stolen from their mothers, the cubs have had their entire future stolen from them. Along with their freedom. Their immediate future is one full of human contact. Being annoyed by humans who want to pet and cuddle the king of Africa. When they get too big, they get sold to zoo's or selected by a hunter, bred for the bullet. #dontsupportcaptivebreeding #cubpettingisnotok #lions #africa #cubpetting #captivitykills #cannedhunting #anticaptivity #dontsupportcruelty #bethevoice #spreadtheword 📷@uncage_the_king

T63, Chainsaw was born in 1978. I had wanted to see him for awhile and I was so excited the second I saw his fin come out of the water as I knew exactly what whale I was looking at without needing to verify in my ID book, obviously you can see why. He has a very distinct fin that gave him his nickname. The cause of those notches are not known (it could have been a boat strike to injury from large prey such as steller sea lion). But he looks massive and healthy and I was excited to see him. #whalewatching #salishwhales #salishsea #orcas #killerwhales #transientorca #mammaleaters #dolphins #whales #sunnyday #calmwaters #oceanlife #marinelife #boatlife #chainsaw #iloveorcas #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildandfree #anticaptivity #canonphotography #canon #ilovewhatido #hobbyistphotographer #pnw #pnwonderland #pacificnorthwest

The big male of the family and eldest child, T49A1. He hung out more closely with his younger brother, T49A3, but still close to Mom and the other two youngsters. The entire group was very playful, rolling around and hunting/feeding as well. It was an amazing encounter with these beautiful animals. #whalewatching #salishwhales #salishsea #orcas #killerwhale #bigbrother #family #sunnyday #transientorcas #transientkillerwhale #mammaleaters #whatsfordinner #sanjuanislands #sji #straitofjuandefuca #harostrait #westernwashington #justanotherdayinwa #photography #canon7dmarkii #wildlife #wildandfree #anticaptivity #wildlifephotography #whales #pacificnorthwest #pnwonderland #pnw

Happy Mother’s Day! Did you know that cows don’t make milk unless they have had a baby just like humans. In the “meat” farming industry animals don’t get the choice to reproduce they are forced to (aka rape), then grow the baby just to have it ripped away, final step for Mom is to be hooked up consistently to a machine for that ever precious white gold (milk) which her baby will never get. Then to make matters worse the baby is killed because the meat is really tender! If you are a woman imagine that happening to you ... repeatedly until you die to only be turned into hamburger meat. Loving cheese does not make this less cruel. Another example of animal exploitation I can’t condone or contribute to is animals in captivity. Especially orcas, they typically will stay with their mothers their entire lives in the wild yet in captivity are separated to fill the parks with enthusiastic patrons ready to watch the “show”. As a mom I could never imagine this life for me or my children so I’m voting with my dollar by not contributing to these industries, as a fellow Mom, woman, human maybe you’ll decide to forego them as well.

Dolphins are highly social animals, forming strong social bonds. Swipe to see a clip of a mother and calf being torn apart for human greed. As you celebrate Mother's Day, don't forget that most captive dolphins were caught this way, being ripped apart from their families. Every time you visit an aquarium, every single time you pay for a swim with dolphins program, you are directly funding what goes on in this clip. How can you help? It's easy, all you have to do is #DontBuyATicket. #TakeThePledge today to boycott aquariums, dolphinariums, marine parks and whatever else they call it. Conservation and research are feeble lies fed to the public to make captivity more palatable, educate yourself @dolphin_project. It's time to #EmptyTheTanks! @emptythetanksworldwide This clip was taken by Liz Carter @bluecovedays at Taiji last year, which is infamous for it's dolphin drives. This baby dolphin is one of the "lucky ones". It gets to spend the rest of its existence on display for human entertainment, performing unnatural tricks in exchange for dead fish in a tiny tank. The dolphins who aren't "pretty enough" are butchered for meat. Dolphin meat has high levels of mercury and is toxic. Learn more @dolphin_project, and check out more videos @bluecovedays

My #puravida bracelets came today. My favorite one being the #savetheorcas : anti captivity bracelet. A portion of the profits are donated to the #whaleanddolphinconservation org. Love repping a good cause and love advocating for beautiful animals. 🐳❤🐬🌊 #puravida #puravidabracelets #anticaptivity #savetheorcasanticaptivity #savetheorcas

Good news! Mexico City has introduced a complete ban on dolphinariums putting an end to the practice within the city’s vicinity. The outright ban follows changes to the Mexican General Law of Wildlife that prohibited dolphin shows, scientific research on dolphins, dolphin assisted therapy and swimming with dolphins programmes. - Dolphin Discovery Six Flags, the only dolphinarium located in the capital, will have six months to relocate the dolphins, as well as any sea lions, or will face a fine of up to 300,960 pesos ($15,000). The animals will most likely be sent to other Dolphin Discovery facilities in Mexico. - This is a great step towards ending dolphin captivity in Mexico and will hopefully inspire other governments to follow suit. - Caption: @inherentlywild

#Repost @chickpeepspod ・・・ What up, ChickPeople, @msevylynch here to tell you a bit about my recent trip to India with Save The Asian Elephants. 🐘 . As most of you will know, animals used in tourism and entertainment is a huge problem for wild animals and the plight of the Asian elephant is grossly misunderstood. 🐘 . People pay for elephant trekking experiences and tiger selfies because they love wild animals, are fascinated by them and want to be close to them. What they do not often realise is they are supporting a lifetime of brutality and exploitation for these beautiful, defenseless animals. 🐘 . I never really understood the extent to which the elephants have been abused to be tamed. They seem like naturally gentle beasts and they are, but there truly is no humane way to tame them enough to endure the stressful, traumatizing situations they are put in for tourist entertainment. 🐘 . We see the elephant walking in the streets placidly among people. We don’t see them chained up for the rest of their lives with no stimulation or company. We don’t realise the stick propped against their body that is used to beat them if they move enough to make it fall. 🐘 . We don’t see the ‘kraal’ cage they are kept in for months until their spirit has been broken. We don’t see the wounds on the backs of their legs from beatings because the mahutes hide them with grey paint. And we need to be aware and educate others about these things because the ignorance of western tourists is the greatest patron of this cruelty. 🐘 . Please educate who think this is a cool cultural experience to have.
