Target: Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau in Guangzhou, China
Goal: Permanently relocate Pizza the polar bear to an accredited sanctuary.
Dubbed the world’s saddest polar bear, Pizza has been trapped inside a mall’s aquarium for the past year. His enclosure consists of no sunlight, brightly painted concrete and a window that visitors bang on and cram against to get a look or photo of Pizza. Thankfully, Pizza is getting a small break from this nightmarish life.
While the mall upgrades some of the facilities, Pizza has been moved to the marine park where his parents live. While this temporary break will be greatly beneficial to Pizza’s mental and physical well-being, a permanent relocation is what he really needs.
In just one year, Pizza has shown clear stressful behaviors due to his captivity including excessive pacing, swinging his head back and forth and mouthing at the gate. Sign this petition and demand the aquarium allow Pizza to live a happy life where he can experience friendship, sunlight and a more natural existence.
Dear Guangzhou Ocean and Fishery Bureau,
Recently, a polar bear named Pizza was relocated to a marine park while the mall he lives at upgrades some of its facilities. This will be a great break for Pizza since he has been displaying some serious stress behaviors due to his extreme confinement at the Grandview Aquarium. Pizza has been seen violently shaking his head back and forth, pacing excessively and mouthing at the gate. While this break is great for Pizza, what would be even better is a permanent relocation.
Pizza’s enclosure in the mall denies everything that is natural to him. It is a concrete pit painted an unnatural blue and offers no sunlight. The only window is for people to look at and take photos of Pizza. It is common for visitors to bang on the window to try to get Pizza’s attention.
Please consider permanently relocating Pizza. He deserves to live a happy life where he can experience friendship, sunshine and a more natural existence. A life at an accredited sanctuary would do wonders for Pizza. No animal should suffer a lifetime for a few moments of human entertainment.
