Free Isolated Whale Used in Research to Accredited Sanctuary

Target: J. Pawloski, Animal Curator at Sea Life Park

Goal: Relocate Kina the false killer whale to a reputable sanctuary for cetaceans.

For thirty years, Kina the false killer whale has known nothing but exploitation at the hands of humans. Captured from the wild in 1987, she was used for echolocation research for decades. The saddest chapter of her life, however, has unfolded over the last 17 months as she’s lived a life of total isolation in a small, shallow tank at the Sea Life Park in Hawaii.

Since August 2015, Kina has lived completely and utterly alone in a tank at the back of the park where she’s hidden from public view. Eyewitnesses who have observed her from a distance have reported her floating listlessly at the surface of her shallow pool, which offers little protection from the sun’s harmful rays.

This whale deserves so much more than an isolated, miserable life in a tank. Ask the marine park’s curator to relocate Kina to a seaside cetacean sanctuary by signing below.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Pawloski,

I was heartbroken to learn about the conditions in which Kina the false killer whale has allegedly been kept since arriving at your park in 2015. Surely you must be aware of the profound intelligence of whales, which are also incredibly social animals by nature. To keep these animals in isolation is nothing short of cruel.

Kina absolutely must not spend the rest of her life in a tank. After serving the U.S. Navy and the University of Hawaii for decades as a research subject, she deserves freedom and joy. Please consider relocating Kina to a reputable sanctuary where she can finally have that opportunity.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Free this poor prisoner….How wrong can people be….We have no right to do this…..Soooo sad to be part of the human race right now 😅😅😅😅😅😅

  3. J Pawloski should be made to live in a tank on his own, but on public display so that everyone can see what the head of an animal abuse facility looks like. No animal or mammal should be used for entertainment, period. No social animal or mammal should be kept in isolation, period. It’s a form of torture to keep Kina on her own, she would have been part of a pod of 10-20.There is no good reason to eat the flesh of animals, there are perfectly adequate vegetable substitutes out there.
    However, I appreciate that some people feel the need to use animals as a source of nutrition. In that case, surely the animals should be treated as humanely as possible before their fate is met? Surely we should treat them with gratitude and compassion if we expect them to sustain us?

      Exactly! Ignorant people like to believe selectively that animals have no feelings and accuse us, the animal protectors, of being anthropomorphic. Well maybe if more people were like us there would be less abuse. So needless for this poor girl to be taken hostage and deprived of all basic needs. Shame on you Pawloski.

    Both the USN and the USAF are showing themselves to be ignorant and monetarily wasteful. They’re run by jerks sitting behind desks who are pathetic in their effort to look important.

    I know. I’m Viet Nam veteran, had to work with this kind of pompous ass.
