ORCA LEAPING OUT OF TOILET
Banksy’s Orca Leaping Out of a Toilet Bowl at ‘Dismal Land’ Is Possibly the Best Anti-SeaWorld Art Created
Banksy, the renowned anonymous street artist just launched his biggest show to date. The project titled “Dismal Land,” a “Bemusement Park,” has been staged in a run-down site home to a former outdoor pool in southwestern England’s Weston-super-Mare and includes works from Banksy, as well as art galleries featuring some 50 international and British artists including Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, David Shrigley, James Cauty, and other lesser known artists.
This simple, yet effective piece of art is yet another powerful punch delivered to the already suffering SeaWorld.
As the film “Blackfish” captured, orcas do not belong in captivity at theme parks like SeaWorld where they are trained to performed ridiculous tricks to entertain people. Orcas are incredibly social and intelligent animals and living in concrete tanks does not provide them with the stimulation, exercise and enrichment that is naturally offered in the wild.
Just think about it … how can it possibly be okay to keep a twenty-thousand-pound orca that is used to swimming an average of 100 miles per day in a concrete tank that is smaller than the parking lot for visitors at SeaWorld?
This is the unfortunate reality for captive animals across the board – whether in zoos or marine parks, and making orcas perform tricks for our entertainment is literally as unnatural as trying to get a whale to jump out of a toilet bowl into a kiddie pool.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit … more amazing art work”
Get familiar with the facts about the life of Orcas in captivity vs. the wild and spread the word so that marine parks like SeaWorld that keep animals captive for our entertainment eventually become relics of the past.
IT’S ALL HERE
A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~
“IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’

Also wanted to say that I love Dismaland, and would love a chance to go there! That entire “amusement park” is amazing.
