SeaWorld: No Air to Spare

Written by PETA | September 13, 2010

PETA activists demonstrated in front of all three SeaWorld locations this weekend—in Orlando, San Diego, and San Antonio—to remind visitors and passersby about the rising death toll at these abusement parks.

In another development, former SeaWorld trainers are calling on federal authorities to reject the corporation’s latest public-relations ploy: to provide “spare air” (small oxygen canisters inside wetsuits) so that trainers like Dawn Brancheau—who was killed by an orca—can get back into the tanks. When Dawn was attacked, she suffered massive injuries. There’s not a chance in the world that an oxygen canister can stand up to the crushing force of a stressed, enraged 5-ton animal.

Please remember, you can help animals by speaking out against SeaWorld. Post on Facebook and spread the word to your family and friends. Join countless other people who are saying “enough” to SeaWorld’s exploitation of orcas, bottlenose dolphins, and other animals. And be sure to visit our True Friends Memorial page set up in memory of Sumar, the orca that died at SeaWorld San Diego last week.
