Because of the seaworld OSHA hearing this week im going to post a water works video every day.
SeaWorld trainers maintain close relationships with their killer whales. Up until February 2010, trainers have always spent time in the water with them. This interaction stimulates the whales, and strengthens their relationships with their trainers. For every new trainer, waterwork is what brings them closer to the whales. A lack of this interaction limits the bond that trainers have with these animals.
SeaWorld trainers know the risks of working with killer whales. That is why they do what they can to keep everyone safe. Until February 2010, new trainers would not begin waterwork until there was enough trust between them and the whales. Today, SeaWorld is working on revising their safety procedures, as well as obtaining new safety equipment in order to prevent future incidents involving orcas and trainers.
In conclusion, OSHA should not keep SeaWorld trainers from re-entering the water with killer whales. Trainers should be allowed to resume waterwork as soon as SeaWorld finishes revising it's safety procedures, and obtaining it's new safety equipment. The orcas have an amazing bond with their trainers, but the lack of waterwork is an obstacle in this bond.
