Release Confined Orca Whales to a Sanctuary

SeaWorld has been abusing orca whales for years. These whales are separated from their families, confined to tiny tanks, forced to breed, and then used as props to entertain gullible audiences. Urge SeaWorld to release its orcas to an accredited sanctuary now.

Better PR Will Not Solve SeaWorld’s Problems

The Earthist Chronicles

Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 9.51.39 AM

SeaWorld already doubled down on its killer whale captivity model by pledging to invest tens of millions of dollars in bigger tanks. And now it is doubling down on the idea that better PR can defuse growing doubts about using killer whales for entertainment:

SeaWorld is working aggressively on improving its image as it continues to fend off criticism over its whales in captivity.

The company is disputing animal-rights activists online, soliciting fan support and trying to call more attention to its work with animals — such as rescuing underweight orphan manatees.

SeaWorld is making these efforts amid declining attendance and lingering controversy intensified by last year’s anti-captivity “Blackfish” documentary. The company said in an earnings report last week that negative publicity contributed to an overall third-quarter attendance decline.

“I think we’ve just realized we have to do a better job of telling our story, sharing the good work we…

SeaWorld San Diego President says SeaWorld has “no intention of allowing anyone to close all zoos and aquariums”

Stop SeaWorld

Unfortunately SeaWorld is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary. John Reilly, the President of SeaWorld San Diego, says that SeaWorld is not “backing down,” and that he’s “very proud.” He claims that the animal care at SeaWorld can help animals, that would otherwise be threatened in the wild, “flourish.” I find it hard to believe that the animals at SeaWorld “flourish” while they are in captivity. Do you?

Pressure for American Express to end partnership with SeaWorld

The Sum of Us organization has a petition to get American Express to cut all ties with SeaWorld. American Express and SeaWorld entered into a multi-year partnership earlier this year, making it the official card of SeaWorld. After the controversy of Blackfish, Southwest Airlines ended their 26 year partnership. Is American Express next?

Blue World

Stop SeaWorld

SeaWorld has announced that they are expanding their pools. This costly alteration, named Blue World, is not expected to be opened until 2018. The expansion is said to be caused by the profit decline the company has been facing since the film Blackfish. With the change, it seems that SeaWorld is admitting that the environment is clearly unhealthy for the whales and they need more space. SeaWorld is still denying that Blackfish has anything to do with their decision, but with the rapid decline of ticket sales, they had to attempt some damage control. Although they are trying to make the space for the orcas more comfortable, they are still in captivity. As long as SeaWorld continues capturing and keeping animals in captivity and using them for entertainment purposes, they will be facing backlash.

SeaWorld Hopes New Orca Habitats Will Stem A Tide Of Criticism

Visitors watch an orca performance at SeaWorld in San Diego this year. The company has seen attendance slip in the year since the release of a documentary film critical of the company's captive whale program.

Sea Shepherd’s Open Letter to SeaWorld: More than Bigger Tanks, Orcas Need the Ocean

Dear SeaWorld,

Your stocks are dropping by the day. You’re bleeding financially in the wake of the powerful documentary “Blackfish” and, more importantly, the public’s growing realization that confining intelligent cetaceans to cruel and small tanks and forcing them to perform is just plain wrong. As the backlash continues, there is a better move forward – and a better use of your money – than your plan to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to build bigger orca tanks.

SW1

As a company responsible for the care of animals, with any steps that you take, you should be asking yourselves “Would this change be better for the animals? Would they want this,” as Sea Shepherd’s Founder Captain Paul Watson says. Yes, bigger tanks, giving these massive orcas more room to swim, would…

Could This Penalty Spell the End of Killer Whales Swimming With Trainers?

Miami Seaquarium, the last U.S. aquatic park to let employees work in the water with whales, was hit with a fine for putting workers at risk of death.

July 25, 2014 By David Kirby

David Kirby has been a professional journalist for 25 years. His third book, Death at Seaworld, was published in 2012.

The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration has issued the Miami Seaquarium a citation for allowing killer whale trainers to come into dangerously close contact with its sole orca, Lolita.

OSHA made a similar move against SeaWorld Florida after the 2010 killing of trainer Dawn Brancheau by the 12,000-pound whale Tilikum.

Though Miami Seaquarium could challenge the violation in court, the penalty could herald the end of trainers performing water shows with killer whales in the U.S.
