Don’t Let SeaWorld’s Cruelty Go International

seaworld-michael-lowin

Target: H.E. Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman of Miral Asset Management and the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority

Goal: Prohibit the new Abu Dhabi SeaWorld from holding animals captive.

A new SeaWorld is being built in Abu Dhabi, and the company plans on imprisoning more animals at this new location. Since the release of the documentary Blackfish, sales have plummeted at SeaWorld. The international extension is SeaWorld’s hope of keeping the business alive despite whether or not that means imprisoning more animals.

Animals held in captivity face mental and physical hardships daily. In the wild, orcas can swim up to 100 miles a day, while dolphins can swim up to 60 miles a day. At SeaWorld, the animals’ only choice is to swim in countless circles around their barren, concrete tanks. In addition, captive life often leads to premature death.

Sign this petition and demand that Abu Dhabi officials prohibit SeaWorld from holding animals captive in its new location.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Chairman Mohamed,

Attendance and sales have been plummeting at the numerous SeaWorlds in the United States. In hopes of keeping the business alive, SeaWorld is planning on extending and making a new park in Abu Dhabi. This means that SeaWorld is also planning on imprisoning more animals in this new location.

Animals held in captivity face many hardships daily. The lack of stimuli and unnatural habitat leads to many physical and mental problems. In the wild, orcas can swim up to 100 miles a day, while dolphins can swim up to 60 miles a day. At SeaWorld the animals can only swim around in their barren, concrete tanks. It is a sad life for these animals, and one that ends much earlier than those that live in the wild.

Please consider prohibiting SeaWorld from holding more animals captive. No animal should be imprisoned for human entertainment, and it is time to stop exploiting these animals for profit.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I’m glad people are losing jobs due to the non attendance of Sea World Parks, but I sincerely hope and pray that these people can and will find jobs quickly.
    It is appalling and so sad to see the pictures of these animals with permanently bent fins due to swimming round in circles, self harming, and attacking each other, or attacking and killing their trainers.
    Sheer depression, deprivation of food, having to live with chlorinated water, in shallow, barren, blue tanks. Then forced to perform stupid tricks just to appease the money hungry shareholders, and thrill the unsuspecting crowds, who have no idea of what really goes on behind the scenes.
    Chairman Mohamed, please think hard about what you would be apart of by agreeing to this horrific torturous existence for these animals. Thank you.

  3. Cruelty to animals is not tolerated in the Quran. Maybe Mr Al Mubarak needs to read the Quran again.

  4. “The only difference between a dog, cat, horse and dolphin and a cow, chicken, pig and turkey is perception. One is no more valuable than another. And yet in this culture, we hold the former animals in high esteem and the latter we brutalize for food. All animals are deserving of respect and freedom from violence. The way to respect others is veganism.”
