This photo always breaks my heart.
This whale once swam free in the waters of Iceland. He was a truly wild being. Until one day humans barged in. They ripped him away from his mother, his family, from everything he knew. He now lives in a prison disguised as an educational and family-friendly destination. Does he miss his mother, I wonder? Does he long for the cold, fresh seawater of Iceland? Does he think about the endless ocean, the place he is meant to be? My heart breaks for you Tilikum. I wish you weren’t stuck in man’s clutches. I wish you were with your mother in Iceland. I wish you were free.
reblogging again for fightingforwhales’ comment… it again breaks my heart to think of what Tilikum has endured…. </3
