Having read through the proposed bill, i don’t see much that i don’t agree with - it’s rather well thought out heres a few main points and my opinion on them:
1- Stopping orca’s being held for entertainment or performance purposes.
- Well i already did a post recently on my opinion on these performances - see here
2- Stopping breeding
Though i still don’t really see how this part is plausible- they are animals after all - do orca’s have birth control? but i do agree with stopping AI’s 100%.
3- Rehabilitation for orca’s currently held, returned to the wild if possible (to whales who can be) whales who can’t be are to be held in pens open to the public for educational purposes.
Seems like unlike a few posts i have seen this is a case by case senerio. If they are ruled unfit for release they won’t be. If they are they will. I think they have forgotten the ones who can’t even go to a sea pen unfortunately but it does say in the next point…
4- Until a facility is established Orcas are to stay in their existing enclosures.
and perhaps too sickly orca’s can stay?
Performance purposes means:
"any routinely scheduled public exhibition characterised by music sound effects choreographed display or unprotected contact. Holding an orca is not necessarily mean it is for those purposes. "
- So in my opinion this means that shows like ‘One Ocean’ (i pick that one since i see the name a lot) would stop. But there is no stopping the whales from doing their own thing in the show pool. Much like Keiko used to do (including making his own up) So i don’t think it would be too much of a loss to the whales daily exercise if they are allowed into the larger pool to do what they want. Long as it is filtered out slowly (the shows) rather than a sudden stop….
But this is just my thoughts :)
..Not what I was hoping for
And I can’t fix it till Monday
People should talk to me more and ask me stuff because I’m chronically lonely and love to talk to people

That 50th anniversary special.
The ‘I don’t want to go’
NOPE. NOPE NOPE NOPE.
Yea that was not okay. I had such hopes for the 50th and Tennant’s return and Rose !

NO. NO. NO GOOD NIGHT FOR YOU. NO.
There was so much screaming at the TV I did while it was on I was surprised my other half knew what was going on with my incoherent ‘nope’s and general gibberish while pointing at the TV xD
