Imagine being immobilized and forcibly impregnated. That’s the reality for female dolphins at SeaWorld, so Kate del Castillo is calling the company out.
A PETA-endorsed “swim with dolphins” event? Only with Edge Innovations’ ultra-realistic robotic dolphin! Catch Delle in action as she makes a splash with the public.
SeaWorld sees Ripley as just a dollar sign. It has hauled her around repeatedly, including from Florida to California to Texas. Now, 25 years later, she’s still trapped in a tank.
With protests in Orlando, Florida; San Antonio; and San Diego, the youth-led group Students Opposing Speciesism let SeaWorld know it’s in deep water for keeping animals in lockdown for life.
Animals with eye problems, tooth damage, rake marks, and zero enrichment are suffering in concrete tanks while SeaWorld exposes them and everyone else there to deadly disease.

At SeaWorld, Bossa, Lily, and Puka were used as breeding machines to create generations of dolphins confined to small concrete tanks for life. Now, all three are dead.
It’s official: Little Grey and Little White, two formerly captive beluga whales, have been moved from a Chinese marine park to a seaside sanctuary in Iceland.
“It’s been 50 years since I was captured—five decades of a living nightmare. Please help me—on my next anniversary, I should be in a sanctuary, not the world’s smallest orca tank.”
Dolphins used in “swim with dolphins” encounters live in misery. But these visionary designers are throwing exploited dolphins a lifeline—in the form of a robotic counterpart.
If an Australian marine park can stop breeding dolphins and join forces with animal rights activists to build a seaside sanctuary, SeaWorld can, too. NO. MORE. EXCUSES.
Animal exploiters are nonessential—the coronavirus pandemic proves that the world can keep on turning without the torture and killing of animals.
