Please sign our petition to end Sea-World's aquatic abuse. By signing this petition, you are agreeing that Sea-World is abusing their animals by keeping them in captivity and small confined spaces, unlike their living spaces in the ocean.
1) SeaWorld says they "don't separate mothers from their calves," and they wait until "after they have been weaned." Well great!...Except that in the real world whales stay with their mothers for THEIR ENTIRE LIVES!
2) Only 1% of whales in the real world ("the wild" as others prefer, but to me that can sound negative) have dorsal collapse, while in captivity pretty much every male, and some females, experiences it (not 23%, as pro-captivators would have you believe, a statistic that only applies to whales from New Zealand).
3) Captive whales live to be 25-35 years old. Free whales live to be 50-60 (males) and 80-100 (females).
4) Furthermore, each family of killer whales has their own language. When SeaWorld and other such companies put whales from separate families together, they become aggressive. It would be like putting four 6-year-olds, who speak different languages, together in a small room with limited resources with a few babysitters who stop by every once in a while to make them perform and if one of them doesn't get along with the others (is being bullied), the babysitters put them in another room, making them sit there alone. Oh wait...that is unspeakable to do to a highly intelligent life form like a human! So why do we do it to highly intelligent creatures like the whale?
it is not about education....sea world is about money!!! period!! I am sick that they claim anything else but the truth!!
This capitalistic institution needs to be shut-down!
