    • 8 Pages

    Based on the ethical, educational, and conservation values of SeaWorld, should it continue to operate? Ethical, Educational, and Conservation Values of SeaWorld Ferris Jabr’s “The Secret Life of Plants,” articulated heavy themes of survival of the fittest. Survival of captive versus. wild animals shares distinct similarities to those themes, especially because of SeaWorld’s recent announcement to end its orca breeding program. Life on a Medieval Barony, as well, discusses how peasants were bound to the land, much like how the whales are bound to the SeaWorld corporation. There is a clear connection between Blackfish, a documentary exposing SeaWorld of its treatment to its animals, and Frida Kahlo’s Self Portrait Between the Borderline of Mexico and the United States.

In…
