The Blackfish DVD Extras

Welcome to Voice of the Orcas blog. If you've found your way here from the Blackfish DVD, you're in the right spot. There are 8 great new interviews that supplement the movie, including one with Gabriela Cowperthaite, the films director, and Dr. Naomi Rose, a leading killer whale expert. 

Gabriela has a new interview on the movie DVD 
Below are three of the papers linked to in the DVD extras, and other supplemental material that help to shed light on the practice of keeping killer whales (Orcinus orca) in concrete enclosures for profit. This practice will end at some point, and our goal is to get information out and accelerate the process. 

To dig in deeper, please consider visiting our primary website, which has a more robust collection of Q&A videos, photos & a science page with dozens of references and links. 

All of the material below can be downloaded and printed.

  1. My comment is not about the Blackfish DVD extras---which are wonderful, by the way. Everyone should view the bonus features on the Blackfish DVD.

    My comment is about dolphin "branding" at SeaWorld. Someone online commented that the dolphins at SeaWorld San Antonio were "branded" (like cattle branding) up near their dorsal fin and that they were bothered by the sight of it.

    I had never heard of this before. I asked the person if maybe the dolphin they saw was branded somewhere else before it came to SeaWorld. The person said that it wasn't only one---it was many of the dolphins.

    I can't imagine SeaWorld or any other owner making ID marks on dolphins that are visible to the park guests.

    Can anyone at VOTO please tell us what this person might have seen and what it is all about?

  3. "First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a
    quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

    I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!"무료야설

    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
