SeaWorld just got busted by a US government agency for violating the Animal Abuse Act — and we may have a rare chance to end its animal cruelty for good
In a surprise move, a Californian congressmen has just introduced a law to make it illegal to keep orcas in captivity. This could change everything — but SeaWorld is already mounting a vicious campaign to defeat this congressman’s brave move. We need to tell the State of California that the public won’t accept SeaWorld’s imprisonment of orcas any longer.’
Enact the Orca Welfare and Safety Act to make it illegal to hold orcas in captivity for performance or entertainment purposes.
Sign on to stop SeaWorld from imprisoning whales for profit.
HOLY HECK: This is actually SUPER close to meeting the goal!
Come on! Let’s spread it like wildfire!
If you don’t know why this is important, BLACKFISH* is available on Netflix and you will learn why this is kind of a big deal. Yes, it’s certainly biased, but the evidence it presents in favor of its argument does a good job speaking for itself.
Even if you’re not the smooshy animal-loving type of person, the fact that SeaWorld is actively breeding an animal involved in the deathsof three people is evidence that responsible practices are not taking place.
* There is some hella disturbing stuff in there, mind you.
Okay this is great news and really fucking important. Seaworld perpetrates animal abuse on a massive scale and can basically go fuck themselves.
