O Sew World, é o mais importante show, com golfinhos e baleias do mundo. E o seu fim, será decisivo, para que futuramente, todos os shows com golfinhos e baleias, pelo mundo fora, (incluindo em Portugal), tenham fim, pois o lugar dos golfinhos e das baleias, são os oceanos, livres e em paz e sossego, e não presos/as em instalações como estas, para que pessoas se possam divertir, as custas do seu sofrimento!
The Chinese Zhonghong Zhuoye real estate group recently invested in SeaWorld, and acquired the rights to develop SeaWorld Parks in China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan. Although SeaWorld has agreed not to send orcas to Asia, the company still may send dolphins and other whales. The Zhonghong Zhuoye Group also may acquire orcas from other sources. We must convince SeaWorld and the Zhonghong Zhuoye Group not to imprison marine mammals in any new parks.
People around the world are learning that marine mammals suffer immensely and die prematurely in captivity. “Denied the freedom of the ocean, these intelligent, family-oriented animals float listlessly or swim in circles in small, barren concrete tanks,” PETA President Ingrid Newkirk commented.
As an animal lover, I am horrified by the suffering of captive orcas and other marine mammals. There are numerous accounts of these magnificent creatures chewing on the concrete sides of their tanks, banging their heads against metal gates, and showing unnaturally violent and even psychotic behavior. In China, there are no federal animal welfare laws. For this reason, the abuse of marine mammals imprisoned in China would likely be even more horrific than that which occurs in other parts of the world.
Please sign this petition urging SeaWorld CEO Joel Manby to prohibit the use of marine mammals in any new parks. This petition will also be delivered to the Zhonghong Zhuoye Group – letting them know that people around the globe will not support parks that abuse marine mammals.
This petition supports the work of numerous animal welfare organizations, including PETA, Sea Shepard Global, and the Animal Legal Defense Fund, which have already requested that any new SeaWorld parks not hold animals captive for entertainment purposes.
