Intelligent, sentient animals like orcas are enslaved in SeaWorld's facilities where they are deprived of living anything like a natural life. Orcas in captivity cannot live in family pods and socialize as they need to. While orcas in the wild often swim up to 100 miles a day, they simply cannot do this when confined in a tank, the equivalent of a watery jail cell. They are only let out to perform menial tricks -- which SeaWorld depends on to make its profits -- that are an insult to their intelligence.
It is too clear that SeaWorld cares little for the welfare of the animals who help it to meet its bottom line!
Months ago, artists like Willie Nelson, Martina McBride and Barenaked Ladies cancelled appearances at SeaWorld after many protested. Please tell Alan Jackson and Kid Rock to cancel their performances at SeaWorld on February 1 and February 2!
