I was watching a documentary called Blackfish about SeaWorld and how they treat the whales.
Here's a trailer:
If you don't want to watch it, I'll sum it up.
Basically the film is about how a company called SeaWorld abuses the whales. They'd take the baby whales away from their mom to take to SeaWorld. They'd throw bombs in the water if the couldn't capture the whale.
Once they are brought to SeaWorld the whales are put into these small dark modules that's only 20 feet wide and 30 feet deep and they stay there for years until they are old enough to get put in the SeaWorld aquarium.
Trainers started getting killed/injuried because the whales started getting stressed out about being in captivity. SeaWorld blamed the workers even though they did everything right.
The whales started doing abnormal behaviors. The whales don't get fed if they don't do a trick right. Their top fin is bent over which it isn't supposed to be. The aquarium is too small for them and etc.
I don't know if other countries have a SeaWorld, but if you don't know what it is it's an amusement park that has whales. The whales performs tricks.

I dont support sea world im in the ocean everyday and live fairly close to sea world I've seen many creatures out at sea where they belong and its beautiful but i do think that if sea world just up and released all the creatures it would do much more harm then good, the ocean can be a harsh world and most of the animals in there would not last very long out in it. I like the movie blackfish but i believe its a bit one sided i know that there are people that work there that devote their lives to helping sea creatures but if i were to run sea world there would be absolutly no more entertainment shows or captivity for future animals it would be a rehabiltation for wounded and sick animals due to human harm and a place to share knowledge and respect for the ocean!1
