PETA Statement re New SeaWorld CEO

For Immediate Release:
March 19, 2015

Anyone who goes into SeaWorld without a plan to release the orcas and other animals held captive is going to sink with this sinking ship. As Ringling Bros. circus explained in citing its reason for retiring its elephant acts, “There’s been, on the part of our consumers, a mood shift.” The public has spoken, and they’re against animal abuse. Orcas belong in the ocean with their families, not in small concrete tanks, swimming in endless circles for years on end.

— Lisa Lange, Senior Vice President, PETA
