Rethinking Relationship with the Environment

Having watched the documentary the Blackfish, I am at a loss of deciding whether man is friendly with nature or whether he always to does those actions that will be pleasing only to his interests. The documentary shows how SeaWorld has been trying to domesticate Orcas to fit in to the life of man. These orcas are locked in at specific rooms and they are used for entertainment by performing shows. On notable occasions, despite them been referred to as docile and friendly, these orcas kill the trainers who are human beings and still they are allowed to perform and carry on to their roles.

I agree with the presentation of the video. In as far as we may try to domesticate these animals, they are wild creatures and they need to be in their niche. The documentary makes it clear that in as far as these animals bring a lot of revenue, they have been reason to death of so many trainers and performers and all that money cannot amount to their loss. The documentary also falls in line with the sociological concept of man and the environment that even if we may want to curve the environment to suit to our needs and our interests, still, there are limits on how human beings can do this. The contents of the movie raises a lot of thoughts on whether man has the right at all to take these animals from their natural environment and lock them up in tiny spaces just as it has been shown in the documentary. Blackfish also begs the question, has man gone too far with trying to make the environment around him suit to his life?
