PETA Statement: SeaWorld Still Sinking

For Immediate Release:

PETA Foundation Director of Animal Law Jared Goodman released a statement in response to SeaWorld’s quarterly earnings report:

SeaWorld continues to operate at a loss of millions of dollars, while parks such as Universal Studios have reported continuing financial success. SeaWorld’s sinking ship will continue to take on water until it frees the orcas confined to tiny tanks in its parks and retires them to coastal sanctuaries.
