Stop Keeping Orca Whales in Captivity

Target: Dr. Jane Lubchenco, Administrator – National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)

Goal: End the captivity of orca whales and allow them to live out their lives in sanctuaries.

Orcas kept in captivity are often forced to live their lives in small, barren tanks, which can cause physical and mental distress. In addition, the loud noise levels and confined spaces in these facilities can have negative impacts on their health and well-being.

To combat the captivity of orca whales, it is crucial to raise awareness about the harms of this practice and push for the adoption of more humane alternatives, such as sanctuaries, which provide more space, stimulation, and natural environments that better mimic their natural habitat. Sanctuaries also allow for the safe release and reintroduction of orcas back into the wild when possible.

Sign the below petition to urge Dr. Lubchenco to take action to end the captivity of orca whales and ensure their well-being and protection.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Lubchenco,

I am writing to urge you to take action to end the captivity of orca whales. The practice of keeping these magnificent animals in small, barren tanks is inhumane and can cause physical and mental distress. In addition, the loud noise levels and confined spaces in these facilities can have negative impacts on their health and well-being.

Sanctuaries provide a more humane alternative for orca whales, where they can live in more natural environments with more space and stimulation. These sanctuaries also provide opportunities for them to be reintroduced back into the wild when possible.

I urge you to end the captivity of orca whales and allow these animals to live out their lives in more humane and natural conditions. Thank you for your attention to this important issue.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
