Target: Joel K. Manby, President and CEO and Director, SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment
Goal: Drop lawsuit challenging ruling that SeaWorld can only build new park for orcas if it agrees not to import or breed them.
The California Coastal Commission (CCC) heard our plea and handed down a compromise deal to SeaWorld, allowing the amusement park to build its Blue World Project, an enhanced environment and amusement park for orcas, but only on the agreement that it would not import or breed orca whales. SeaWorld has filed a lawsuit against the CCC in response.
This legal action confirms SeaWorld’s true intentions behind its Blue World Project, and that to, as PETA accurately reflects, subject orcas “a lifetime of deprivation, loneliness, and frustration by breeding them.” It’s time to stop this monster of an “entertainment” company once and for all.
Demand SeaWorld dismiss its frivolous lawsuit against the CCC and stop containing and breeding orcas. Its continued abuse of sea life for profit is repulsive, and it must discontinue its orca breeding program and release its captive orcas into seaside sanctuaries.
Dear Mr. Manby,
The California Coastal Commission’s (CCC) ruling on SeaWorld San Diego’s Blue World Project is designed to protect California coastline resources and animals. Its ruling also protects orcas already in captivity at SeaWorld San Diego and prevents SeaWorld from abusing more orcas. Your lawsuit against the CCC’s ruling only confirms your true intent, and that is to continue to abuse orcas for profit.
It’s time SeaWorld throw in the proverbial towel. We know you aren’t interested in the humane conservation of sea life; you’re interested in abusing sea life for your profit. Your frivolous lawsuit is proof. You and your organization are not animal conservationists, you’re animal abusers. Dismiss your ridiculous lawsuit, stop importing and breeding orcas, and release your captive orcas into seaside sanctuaries. Have you no conscience whatsoever?
