Demand Sea Park Release Lone Dolphin to Sanctuary

Target: Jeff Pawloski, Animal Curator at Sea Life Park

Goal: Retire Kina, the lone false killer whale at Sea Life Park, to an accredited seaside sanctuary.

A lone false killer whale has reportedly been kept alone, in a small dirty tank at Hawaii’s Sea Life Park for a little over a year. This dolphin has had an incredibly difficult life and it is time she is retired to an accredited sanctuary where she can relax and be happy for her remaining days.

Before Kina was isolated at Sea Life Park, she was used for echolocation research at the University of Hawaii and the Navy. Before she was brought over to the U.S., she was stolen from the wild during one of Japan’s notorious drive hunts and kept at a sea park in Hong Kong. She now languishes in a small tank where she allegedly has no relief from the direct sunlight.

Sign this petition and demand Kina is retired and brought to an accredited sanctuary where she can live out the rest of her days as nature intended.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Pawloski,

Kina has been kept at your marine park all alone for the last 17 months. Before she arrived at your park, her life was very difficult.

For years she was used for echolocation research at the University of Hawaii and the U.S. Navy. Before that, she was stolen form the wild in 1987 during one of Japan’s infamous drive hunts and brought to a marine park in Hong Kong. Kina has never been given a chance to really thrive in a natural setting.

Please consider retiring Kina to an accredited sanctuary where she be in a more natural habitat and can dive, swim freely and be surrounded by fellow marine friends. She does not bring in any profit since she is secluded from the public.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
