One Quick Tweet for Whales

Could you imagine not being able to spend Thanksgiving—or any day—with your friends and family? Take a few seconds to really think about how you’d feel. And what if you were also confined to a tiny concrete prison and abused by others, with nothing at all to be thankful for?

Luckily, this isn’t the reality for most of us. But it is real life for orcas who are imprisoned at SeaWorld day after day, year after year.

To us, this is heartbreaking. But for some reason, Macy’s thinks that this is something worth celebrating and is planning to include a SeaWorld float in its Thanksgiving Day parade this year. Ugh!

Tell Macy’s that this is not OK!

During the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, tweet this image, along with a message expressing your disappointment about Macy’s decision to include a SeaWorld float in its parade, with the hashtag #MacysParade.

Why should you do this? Countless people will be checking this hashtag during the parade, meaning they’ll find out the truth about SeaWorld’s cruelty from your tweet!

Here are some suggested tweets:


“Orca abuse is not OK, @Macys! So disappointed u kept @SeaWorld’s float in #macysparade. #blackfish #boycottseaworld”
