Blog: Ending SeaWorld Slavery

Reese Halter

Finally, SeaWorld San Diego has been banned from breeding and trading animals in captivity. This is tremendous news for our friends the dolphins.

The ruling was handed down last Thursday by California’s Coastal Commission, which has begun the process of ending animal slavery at dolphinariums.

Did you know that when Orcas — the largest and smartest of all dolphins — are mistreated, they suffer from severe dental trauma, including grinding their teeth?

It’s time to empty the tanks at SeaWorld because marine mammal cruelty is unacceptable.

Please support the crucial conservation work of Sea Shepherd because they’re protecting the doctors of the sea — the dolphins.

Love is the solution.
