Following five years of pressure from PETA and after hearing from hundreds of thousands of our supporters, travel giant Expedia has stopped selling tickets to SeaWorld and cruel “swim with dolphins” encounters! This is a victory for all the dolphins who are forced to perform meaningless tricks and are harassed by humans who touch and ride them as well as for those held in archaic marine parks, where they’re used as breeding machines to create generations of suffering animals. Expedia joins dozens of companies (including Tripadvisor and Southwest Airlines) that have stopped selling tickets to SeaWorld—along with other companies (such as Mastercard and Savings.com) that ended “swim with dolphins” promotions long ago. Please help keep victories coming for dolphins by urging Build-A-Bear Workshop to cut ties with SeaWorld.
