For Immediate Release:

Sea lions are wild animals—they’re not party props, playmates, or pool toys. Animals forced to interact with visitors or perform tricks such as handstands are often trained in cruel ways, including beatings and food deprivation. Sea lions are sensitive living beings who belong in the wild, where they have the freedom to swim long distances, lounge in the sun, hunt for food, and raise their families. They don’t belong in any millionaire’s backyard swimming pool.
