Translation.....

With the recent release of the documentary film "Blackfish" in theaters has learned a wide audience of the huge welfare problems caused by the attitude of the captivity of Orcas. Therefore, I advocate to your company to readjust his position and stop the display, breeding and keeping of Orcas.

I acknowledge that Orca trainer like their animals and do everything for their well-being. But killer whales suffer the cramped conditions, boredom, an artificial composition of groups and resulting frustration and aggression. Many captive Orcas have a strongly curved dorsal fin - the result of an unnatural frequent swimming close to the surface and a symbol for the inadequate conditions in the water basin. Orcas are not suited to keeping in captivity; the presentation of tricks to it, not do justice this intelligent and highly social animals.

The captivity of marine mammals is inhumane and irresponsible. For smaller species such as bottlenose dolphins and belugas especially the animal welfare problems in the foreground, while the enormous security risk for their coach is in Orcas. Captive killer whales killed four people have come so far - three by Tilikum in the United States and one by Keto at Loro Parque, Tenerife. Dozens more attacks are documented – some of them with serious injuries.

Animal welfare and safety reasons I urge--politely but firmly you to end the demonstration, breeding and keeping of Orcas! Set an example and act responsibly.
