Dreaming of Orcas Archival Posts

On the main page for my book, I feature the last few notes from my research. They are always very brief and express a singular thought. Some of these are hot takes and others are just plain nerdy, so enjoy!


There has been a recent Tik-Tok video circulating about a dolphin attack at SeaWorld Orlando. While this may be disturbing to watch, it is important to note that whales and dolphins use physicality as a form of communication. The narrator did a good job at handling this situation. A general note: animals in captivity are observed more than animals in the wild, especially in public spaces like marine parks. It's important to acknowledge the inherent availability heuristic before making any claims of animal mistreatment.
