Just off the Russian coast, 11 orca and 90 beluga whales are being held in tiny, cramped, and probably illegal enclosures that are being called “whale jails.” Many fear that the marine animals will be illegally sold to Chinese water parks and aquariums.

The situation is horrifying. Please sign this petition demanding that Russian authorities investigate and shut down these “whale jails,” and hold those responsible accountable!

According to reports, the four companies that own the pens holding these whales have been caught selling whales to China in the past. They had been given permission to capture wild whales for educational purposes, which is legal, but secretly sold them to aquariums in China, which is illegal. One orca sold for more than $1 million.

These companies are profiting over the torture and abuse of these amazing creatures. Trapping dozens of whales in tiny pens and then selling them for a life of misery in an aquarium is absolute abuse. Those responsible must be held accountable.

Whales deserve to be free and wild. Sign now to urge authorities to get to the bottom of this and save these whales.Photo: Masha Netrebenko/The Siberian Times
