There, the group says, she remained for 10 minutes."One would never see this bizarre behavior in nature," said Richard O'Barry, Dolphin Project founder and an animal activist who once trained dolphins for the TV show "Flipper," in a statement."We are grateful that these kind students are spreading the message that orcas belong in their ocean homes - not in small chlorinated tanks." The petition describes how Sea World confines orcas - who swim up to 100 miles a day in the wild - to tanks that, to them, are the size of a bathtub.To cover the same distance in captivity they would need to swim 1,208 laps around the perimeter or 3,105 lengths across the longest part of the park's largest tank.Captive orcas gnaw on the metal bars and concrete walls of tanks out of stress, anxiety and frustration, sometimes breaking their teeth resulting in dental drilling without anaesthetics.PETA - whose motto reads, in part, that "animals are not ours to use for entertainment" - continues to urge all marine parks to retire the long-suffering orcas they hold captive to seaside sanctuaries.The killer whale sits atop a concrete platform at a Canary Island aquarium, belly squashed and head slowly bobbing for three minutes of grainy footage.The Dolphin Project, the nonprofit animal-advocacy organization that released the video, says the whale -- a captive female orca named Morgan -- slid out of the water after a performance at Spain's Loro Parque aquarium.
For example, in the region of Valdes, Argentina, there is a group of orcas that has learned to hunt the cubs of sea lions in the shallow waters near the shore."In general, when whales strand themselves -- especially en masse -- it is a phenomenon without scientific consensus.
Pupils have been awarded a special award following a petition to stop Sea World keeping orcas in captivity.
The Year 6 students from Bushey Heath Primary School set up the petition after learning how to letter write in their English class and now they have been given a Compassionate Action Award from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) charity.
In less than a week the petition has received more than 1,000 signatures and PETA wanted to congratulate the students who were raising awarness of the suffering of captive orcas at Sea World, Florida.
Mimi Bekhechi, the director of international programmes for PETA UK, said: "Kids naturally love animals and are eager to call for orcas' freedom once they learn that these sensitive beings suffer in captivity.
