Demand An End To Captive Orca/Dolphin Breeding- Tell SeaWorld NO MORE captive whales & dolphins!

July 27, 2011

Some will argue SeaWorld has played a role in raising awareness regarding orcas and dolphins while other’s will argue SeaWorld has only exploited these animals for fame and monetary gain. Regardless of what has played out in the past, it is now time to retire the idea of accepting orcas and dolphins in captivity. This way of thinking is out dated and must be condemned for the sake of the animals well-being.

SeaWorld is very desperate right now for “new” breeding genes to add to their captive orca breeding program. SeaWorld has over breed, cross-breed and even inbreed their whales to keep the show going, but the gene pool stock is running low. This is leading to the possibility that SeaWorld is trying to collect semen from a male wild caught captive orca in a foreign country to attempt to add diversity into their orca stock gene pool. This should be viewed as unacceptable to the public and law makers, as laws prohibit from the importation of the entire orca into the states….

Why the sperm?

→ There is a new petition seeking an amendment be made to the Marine Mammal Act of the United States Law

We,the undersigned,request the United States House of representatives to amend  Subpart B  section 216.12 of the Marine Mammal Act to include a ban on importation of Marine Mammals and Marine Mammal Products into the United States for purposes of Scientific Research,and that the issuing of permits for Scientific research and the importation and issuing of permits  of Marine Mammals for purposes regarding introduction of captivity in any Marine park, Aquarium,or other aquatic facility located within the jurisdiction of the United States,or its territories,be deemed unlawful.We request this amendment to 216.12 of the Marine Mammal Protection act to include all Marine Mammals inclusive with section 216.15 of the depleted species section of the act.The importation of Marine Mammals into the United States,whether it be for scientific research,or under permits or license issued by the U.S.secretary of Commerce,condemns Marine Mammals to death or captivity.We request review and adoption of an amendment by the U.S. House of Representatives,request a vote on the aforementioned proposed amendment to 216.12 of the act,and that certification of the proposed amendment be submitted to the United States Senate for review by the judiciary committee,and that said amendment be adopted by the United States Senate.  REFERENCE 16 U.S.C.1374 section 104,issuance of permits,section (c).Subchapter (A) Part 216-Regulations Governing the taking and importation of Marine Mammals.

Morgan

 Another desperate attempt is to obtain Morgan, a female wild caught orca who was not doing well and became separated from her pod in Dutch waters.

 Morgan’s story is another Tilikum story. The opportunity for release existed/exists yet SeaWorld worked/works to pursued to the Icelandic/Dutch government saying Tilikum could not be released as he would expose the wild orcas to captive diseases and Morgan can not be released because she has been in captivity.

No Gloves during medical procedure

SeaWorld is fighting tooth and nail for Morgan. An attorney is representing Morgan in hopes of getting her released back to the wild where she belongs.

→ Morgan Needs our help, please sign Morgan’s petition

This would not be occurring to Morgan if these animals were not being kept for display, she would have been released back to the her pod. If the public would have stood up for Tilikum prior to his transfer to SeaWorld, he would not have been able to play a role in the death of three individuals in captivity. Tilikum would have been free with his family doing what they best, living life.

It is time to we take a stance against the public display of orcas and dolphins in captivity by ending the captive breeding programs. Once the captive breeding program is ended the remaining orcas and dolphins could phased out over time.

→ Please sign our petition if you agree SeaWorld should end their captive breeding orca and dolphin programs out their captive orcas and dolphins.

    Marine mammal captivity should end NOW!!! It is very insensitive and inhumane to chase, kidnap and keep these magnificent animals in captivity for profit and entertainment. This is NOT the life they were born to live. It is right up there with human kidnapping and enslavement and exploitation! Stop it!!!! Sincerely, Barbara Mieirs

    C-R-U-E-L that’s what I think!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s soooooo mean!!!! Since it’s mean, why do it? How would you like to get captured, and forced to live in a cement tank? The orcas don’t harm US, so why harm THEM? I AM TIERD OF THE U.S TREATING WILDLIFE THIS WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😉
