Could you step into the life of an animal at SeaWorld for just 30 seconds?
SeaWorld, which owns all but one of the orcas held captive in the U.S., has a long history of mistreating animals. Orcas are intelligent predators with unique dialects who, in the wild, work cooperatively to search for food. In some populations, orcas rarely leave their mother's pod, but at SeaWorld, they're often separated. Free-ranging orcas are among the fastest animals in the sea, and they swim up to 100 miles every day. But at SeaWorld, they can only swim in endless circles and float listlessly in small barren concrete tanks.
Wild male orcas live an average of 30 years and up to 60 years, and females live an average of 50 years and up to more than 100 years. But the average life span of orcas at SeaWorld is only 13 years.
To help the orcas, dolphins, penguins, sharks, polar bears, seals, and other animals held captive by SeaWorld, please don't ever buy a ticket to SeaWorld, visit its parks, or support it in any other way.
