Sea World is hurting orcas. My first reason is I think that sea world is hurting orcas because they won’t let them go after they have healed from there injury. My first evidence is “Orcas in the wild have an average life expectancy of 30 to 50 years—their estimated maximum lifespan is 60 to 70 years for males and 80 to over 100 for females. The average age of death for orcas who have died at Sea World is 13 years old”, from 8 reasons orcas don’t belong at sea World.

My second reason is orcas don’t have enough room to swim in and have the correct diet. My evidence is that from 8 reasons that orcas don’t belong in sea World  says “All captive adult male orcas have collapsed dorsal fins, likely because they have no space in which to swim freely and are fed an unnatural diet of thawed dead fish. Sea World claims that this condition is common—however, in the wild, it rarely ever happens and is a sign of an injured or unhealthy orca”.

My third reason is some orcas have to live together which can cause some serious damage to the whales health. My third evidence is from 8 reasons orcas don’t belong in Sea World says “Orcas who are not compatible are forced to live in tight quarters together. The resulting anxiety and tension cause fights between orcas. In the wild, orcas have strong social bonds that may last for life, their social rules prohibit serious violence against each other, and when fights do occur, they can find space to flee. In captivity, there’s nowhere for them to go, which leads to injuries and death.

Do you think that Sea World is hurting the orcas?
