These Orcas can have a chance to live longer, and trainers would no longer have to risk their lives training them. If oceanarias are worried about losing profit they could try redesigning orca enclosures to satisfy a Killer Whales’ needs better (Rose, 10). However, for change to happen it needs to bring attention to the media and public. Raising awareness of the dangers of captivity is surfacing more, documentaries like The Cove and Blackfish showed the public what really is going on to these creatures. Due to those films SeaWorld’s profits have dropped and more companies have broken ties with them. Slowly it is becoming accepted that Orcas cannot live in their current tanks, in the future they could have a better living condition whether in a marine theme park or in the…

Not with dinosaurs, obviously, but rather having a huge park where animals could roam freely with other species of animals. It could give a real life like sanitary for people to visit, while still providing safety for the animals with veterinarians on staff. The amount of room available is a problem for every…

For each panda that a zoo has, it cost them one million dollars per year plus another six hundred thousand dollars every time a cub is born. On top of that, the money that the zoos make annually is not enough to cover the cost of the pandas (Washington Post 2). Pandas are not worth one million dollars a year, simply to look at. There…

In exchange, humans serve as a safe haven for the injured and ill animals that wash up on shore as many countries have several rehabilitation centers for animals.
