They may not be going to the Super Bowl, but the Miami Dolphins are still champs in our book. The NFL team is the latest corporate entity to sever its ties with SeaWorld after hearing from PETA. The team will no longer offer discounted admission to the park as an incentive to its ticket holders or hold contests in which the prize is a trip to SeaWorld.
In the wake of the riveting documentary Blackfish, more and more of SeaWorld’s corporate partners—including Hyundai Motor America, Panama Jack, Southwest Airlines, and Virgin America—are breaking ties with the park. The company’s profits have plummeted, it has laid off hundreds of employees, and shareholders have filed lawsuits.
What You Can Do
Encourage AAA to follow the Dolphins’ example and cut ties with SeaWorld.
