Despite a rise in popular sentiment against marine mammal parks, these parks are still legally allowed to use wild-caught or captive-bred orcas for performance and entertainment purposes.

I am always happy to support this type of petition. What we can also do is to avoid visiting this type of display ourselves but also tell friends that are thinking of visiting how cruel they are. I recently showed a video posted on Care2 to a neighbour who changed her plans and is now taking her children to another theme park.

It is a sin against nature to pen wild creatures up. You have to be pretty damn conceited and self centered to believe our enjoyment and entertainment is worth anything even close to that. Selfish people wrapped up in greed and overblown egos.

TO keep them in these pools is like keeping them in boxes. What land do people liv win that they think animals can be kept in small enclosures? I feel the same about birds. they re meant to fly and some just spend their lives sitting on perches. Orcas live in vast oceans and shouldn't be in little pools. Sure they can move but it is nothing compare dot what they do in their natural habitats.

Thank you for proposing this bill, it is definitely needed to protect orcas, as they do not belong in captivity. I am in total support of this bill (though it would be even better if it also included dolphins)
Thank you for taking a stand and I stand with you.

As if the movies 'The cove' and 'Black Fish' haven't already exposed what really goes on in aquariums. I would like to ask everybody to stop visiting Seaworld or any other marine park anywhere in the world. That's the only way that in the future, these intelligent mammals will be able to swim freely in the oceans, which they deserve and where they belong.

Please sign the care2 petition 'Protect Dolphins from Cruel Tank Cleaning' as well:
