Stephen Schwarzman, SeaWorld CEO

We demand that you release or retire all marine mammals in captivity. For the marine mammals that are not suitable candidates for release into the wild, we demand that you create a transition plan that would facilitate their readjustment to the wild or retire them into seapens. We think it's a shame that you keep these beautiful mammals in pens that are smaller than your own home and that you profit off their exploitation and suffering.

Why do we put the planet's second smartest mammal in small aquarium tanks and treat them as puppets for entertainment?  I need your help to free beautiful marine mammals trapped in captivity at SeaWorld locations across the planet.   I do not feel marine mammal entertainment parks have any place in the 21st century.  

We know the level of awareness these animals have. We know their social connections, their eating habits, and natural wild behaviors. You cannot breed natural instincts out of an animal in a handful of generations. These are incredibly social, intelligent beings that are being taken advantage of to make money. It is animal slavery, and it needs to be brought to the general public's attention.  These beautiful animals should not be trapped in pens that are too small and worked until their last breath is taken and then thrown out like trash and replaced.  Please sign the petition and join the campaign to free these orcas   

On July 27, people across the globe in 21 locations will be protesting against marine mammal facilities.  If you would like more information about the campaign, please visit the Empty the Tanks website:  http://www.emptythetanksworldwide.com/
