Established in 1964, SeaWorld is an aquatic themed park which provides its visitors with close encounters with marine wildlife like belugas, dolphins, and orcas, also known as killer whales.

According to the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, SeaWorld holds the vast majority of the world's captive orca whales which appear in shows. These performances are the current cornerstone of SeaWorld's entertainment model.

Orcas are highly intelligent, social animals. In captivity, they are deprived of the interactions they would normally have within their pod family structure. They often have stunted lifespans and numerous health issues while being forced to perform behaviors and tricks they would never exhibit in the wild. These impressive animals are almost constantly in motion, can dive as deep as 195 feet, and travel as far as 100 miles in a day, a range which no tank or aquarium can offer. Deprivation of natural habitat and social bonds often causes the whales to display aggressive behaviors unheard of in the wild.

SeaWorld's exploitative practices cannot be allowed to continue. Boycott SeaWorld until the company ends its policy of captivity for whales and other cetaceans.

Dear SeaWorld C.E.O. Jim Atchison,

Until SeaWorld ends its policy of captivity for orcas and other cetaceans, I am writing to inform you that I will be boycotting your establishment and will be encouraging my friends and peers to do the same. It is cruel and exploitative to keep these highly intelligent, social animals away from their natural habitat and pods simply for the sake of human entertainment.

Under the stress of captivity, these animals display aggressive behaviors unheard of in the wild. Trainers have lost their lives to frustrated whales lashing out, and countless near-misses go unreported.

If SeaWorld is truly concerned about the welfare of the animals it cares for, it would end captivity for orcas and other cetaceans. Your organization has the unique capacity to play a heroic role in the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of whales rather than using them as entertainment.

I will not support your company's exploitative practices and will encourage my friends to join me in the boycott until you end your policy of captivity for whales and other cetaceans.

Feb 27, 2015 Diana Newton I doubt this will do any good. Money means more to SeaWorld than the animals. That's a given. However, the least I can do is boycott SeaWorld and encourage all my friends to do the same.

Feb 27, 2015 Alice Lundgren There is no need to have Orcas and many other wildlife in captivity, they are only too happy to entertain us in the wild. LET THEM GO.... I will never go to an aquarium that has captive sea life such as this. Inhumane.

Feb 26, 2015 Joanne Paipona If there is a present loving connection with the Orcas at Sea World and the workers, then it is understandable to be gentle with setting them free. All n all, it seems so important for their well being and the people involved, to set them free.

Feb 26, 2015 Lani Wright These beautiful and majestic animals should live wild and free! Not captive in a concrete tank... sad!

Feb 26, 2015 sandra perry Do not understand why SeaWorld thinks its OK to have wild animals kept in captivity!! They deserve to be in their own environment. Not kept in a small enclosure for peoples enjoyment. Disgusting behaviour from a human being!!
