Orlando, Fla. – Below, please find a statement from PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman regarding SeaWorld’s first-quarter earnings report, which was released this morning:
This quarter, SeaWorld lost its fourth CEO in five years, and with more than 90% of its employees furloughed and its parks closed for the foreseeable future, PETA has some advice for it: Accept our offer of $250,000 toward building a sea sanctuary, retire the long-suffering orcas, dolphins, and whales, and win back the hundreds of thousands of families who boycott SeaWorld’s orca prisons.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment,” and the group opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. More information is available at SeaWorldOfHurt.com.
