PETA Campaign Ends Cruel ‘Dolphin Surfing’ at SeaWorld

SeaWorld has been forced to stop treating dolphins like surfboards and will soon stop making trainers stand on their faces in demeaning circus-style shows! The company admitted that it’s ending the cruel practices in response to PETA’s latest shareholder proposal calling for the changes. Our months-long campaign also included a damning veterinary report exposing the suffering that dolphins endure at the parks, a shareholder question posed by Alec Baldwin, and e-mails from more than 133,000 of our members and supporters. But orcas and other dolphins continue to suffer in cramped concrete tanks. Please urge SeaWorld to put a plan in place to move them to seaside sanctuaries now.
