In my first blog on this topic I talked about how all animals have a fight or flight trigger and how I'm going to research the difference between the fight or flight trigger in Captive vs feral animals. The reason why I feel like researching this is because I feel like marine animals in marine world or six flags or any other amusement parks are being treated poorly. I've also noticed how marine animals are becoming far more aggressive with their zoo keepers and themselves. I wanted to to do an experiment to find out if certain environments affect a marine animal in its habitat.
So first off, both me and my partner agreed that we don't want to be testing on animals because we believe that that's bad for the fishes and we truly believe that what we are researching is not meant for a fish to be in the environment and we don't want the fish to die. So what I am thinking is; how can I show that an animals environment is not suitable for it to live comfortably without hurting an animal? So this is how i am going to do my experiment; I am going to get sand and water from different bodies of water to see first off what type of habitat is a fish living in right now? Then I am going to test the water that the animals are in at marine world to see exactly how safe it is for the animals natural health. I am doing research on how they live but I am also researching what type of water they are made to live in.
After I have collected my data I am going to post it all on my blog as my final project to project it for the world to see and especially the companies that use sea animals in this way.
