A Man Among Orcas - Wildlife Documentary

  • Published on Jun 3, 2017
  • Enduring raging winds and icy waters with minimal protection, he enters the intimacy of elephant seals and orcas using clever ethological analyses and gets them used to his presence. Then comes the extraordinary: meet a man who communicates with penguins with body language, calms young seals and turns them into live pillows, lies underwater with 8 ton orcas or mature male seals...

    I think it is funny that it is a documentary not just about nature, but about a guy doing a documentary about nature. A crew filming a guy filming wildlife. Just thought it was cool.

    Somehow it started out as being a documentary about orcas but ended up being more about elephant seals... Good video either way though.

    41:05 I would never be able to be on a wild life documentary crew, I think after a minute of listening to that baby seal cry I would break and be well on my way to putting some fish in a blender to feed him a bottle of fish smoothie milk and then take him home to be my water dog... actually now that I think of it a seal would be a sweet pet, someone needs to get on domesticating seals. They can get around on land ok, they bark, i feel like a seal would almost be better than a guard dog (no ones going to fuck with the insane guy using elephant seals as guard dogs). And instead of just going for a boring normal walk, you take your seal on a leash to the beach and go snorkeling, or he could pull you on a tube or kayak, or could be like a hunting dog for going spear fishing, and they live longer a wild harbor seal lives 25 to 30 years in the wild so well over 30 I would think under human care... how has no one thought of this?

    If I didn't live in the mid-west where both the east and west coasts are over 1000 miles away I would be all over creating a domesticated breed of seal, I guess we have otters though... ugh not really as good as seals, I would need like a sled team of 10 otters to pull my kayak, plus the Mustelids are the most untrustworthy mammals in the world, they're all a bunch of weasels

    That these animals don't attempt to eat a human in the water is actually incredible. Why not? It makes no sense at all. We're obviously edible. They eat so many other animals, warm blood animals too. Why not humans? Do they somehow sense sentience and intelligence? They owe us nothing. How do we repay their true act of respect? We trap them, steal their babies, lock them in concrete tanks and make them perform stupid tricks and we slaughter them. Humanity has been improving but we really need to step it up and close down those amusement parks.

    • Mariah
      Mariah 22 days ago +1

      Magindeed They weren’t called killer whales till poachers and other humans along those lines started calling ORCAS that. There is NO reported cases that ORCAS hurt any human in the wild. Perhaps for another reason they’re called killer whales is because well obviously they’re predatory animals, and what do they kill? Primarily seal and fish.
