Remind you, guys, that I made a chronological page about captive russian orcas (x) and profiles of each captive russian orca (x).

I’m interested: do you want to see info-pages about every facility where russian orcas are being kept?

Ladies and Gentlemen….
These people are my top 4 art inspirations. They inspire me each and every day. I stay up hours and hours a night studying their ways of art. And you notice something about all of them? they all have their art as their Icon. I strive to be that good. I will one day. I will get there. I am so close. Thank you

You 4 are my biggest inspirations to art and you continue to teach me. Even if it’s not verbally or physically, your art helps me mentally. Continue to do what you do best.

omg, I’m in this list! Never knew that me and my arts can inspire someone. 
Thank you! :3

Do you, anons, think that this is fun? 41 message, every one with the same text. It’s not fun. Every week the same.I’m not related with people who capture orcas, I don’t know who they are. I’m just a blogger, who is looking for news about captive russian orcas and then posting it here for those, who interested.I want to leave Tumblr, really.

This is ridiculous, and if they spent as much time as they did doing this reading your blog they might see that. I’m sorry you’ve had to deal with these assholes/that asshole.Please don’t leave tumblr your posts are so valuable, if you don’t want to turn off anon I use this website to keep track of traffic on my tumblr page. Which you can use to see who this anon is.
Anons are complete cowards - and in this case this anon is an incredibly ignorant coward.

Thanks for your support.
I actually don’t want to turn off anon questions, because sometimes people sends me questions about orcas and I always want to answer them, to share information with them. And now I have this anon who sends me 30-50 messages per week with almost same text. It wouldn’t be annoying, if it happened not so regularly.
And yes, I already use this site, but it don’t give me any information about anon, except he/she (or maybe they) is from United States.

It should also give you their IP which you can block from accessing your page X (I have tested it and can successfully block my own- it bounces you straight off the page to the directed one) Hope that helps :3

Oh, thank you thank you thank you! C:I hope this anon-hell will ends.

Via Erich Hoyt:

STILL NO RUSSIAN ORCA QUOTA for 2014: Despite reports and rumours that the Russian government has already set the killer whale capture quotas for 2014 at 10 individuals, the fact is: NOTHING has been decided yet. Yes, there have be recommendations for a quota of 10 from “experts” in Russia but at least one of the experts has recommended zero quotas. Until the “expert” consultation is complete, we won’t have an official number. No Russian company can apply for permits to catch killer whales until a quota is allocated.

Anonymous asked: Have you ever seen an orca? Will you go to the aquarium to see Narnia and her mate when it opens?

No, I’ve never seen an orca, only on pictures and videos in internet. :( One of my dreams is Whale Watching!

I don’t want to go to Moscow Aquarium, don’t want to give any money to this business. I really hate places which keep cetaceans or any other animals (especially wild-caught) to display them in show for the money purposes. I will go to that hell only if many-many people will ask me to document all this horror, no more.

Anonymous asked: Hi ciorano thanks for all your information you provide about these 2 Russian orcas. The next time you go do you think you could get video recordings of the splashes and breathing? And have you tried to ever get into the tents to get further pictures or is it to dangerous with the security around the place? Once again thanks again for this info you are pretty much the only source of information on these 2 orcas. Ben

Hi, Ben
Thanks for your message.

I think yes, I could record all the sounds. Hope, my cam will record it ok.
As for pictures from the tent: there is the only one gate to get to the tanks and this gate is guarded by 2-3 security guards. Also, as we know, they have a candid camera somewhere, so even if I will try to climb over the fence: 
1. The fence is really tall and while I (or whoever) will try to get on it, I will be noticed by guards;
2. If I even will come to the tanks undetected, I will need to get out, but the only way to get out of this place is gate (as I already said) which is guarded by 2-3 security guards. The chance that I will be able to escape from there undetected or at least safe, is only 1%. I think that the whole dome is guarded by more than 5-6 guards.

I actually thought about it, but I really afraid that will happen if guards will catch me. :/ They’ll hand over me to the police or maybe something worse.

lorkassa asked: It's me again: do you know when they planning to open Moscow Aquarium? Also, don't you know how deep SeaWorld's pools or Marineland's?

In April new general manager of All-Russia Exhibition Center said that Aquarium will be opened by the end of this year. But I think that they’ll finish only in the first quarter of 2015, imho.

As for depth of SeaWorld’s or Marineland’s pools - I don’t know, you should ask other blogers or search in Google. I don’t know much about other marine park’s pools. :/
