The death toll continues to rise at SeaWorld with the passing of a 12-year-old orca named Sumar at the theme-park chain’s San Diego location. Sumar died far short of the expected 50-to-60 year lifespan of orcas who roam the vast oceans where they belong.

Whatever caused Sumar’s death, a lifetime in a barren concrete pool—in mere gallons of water instead of the fathoms he deserved—was no life at all for this orca. How many animals and people must pay with their lives before SeaWorld begins the process of transitioning orcas to coastal sanctuaries?

Please contact Blackstone Group (which owns SeaWorld) and insist that it begin the rehabilitation process right away.

Just keepin’ it real,
Sunny

    Seven orcas died from the J and L pod this year. That’s more than SeaWorld and 4 of those that died were under the age of 10. Two were less that a year old. Let’s all write a letter to Alaska and protest that they’re killing the whales! Let’s write a letter to the Pacific ocean to end the deaths! From now on I’m boycotting the ocean!! Boooo!!

    Those seaworld people just care about making money. “Oh, we killed another whale? That’s okay just replace it till the next one dies.” I can’t stand people like this.

    People are being so selffish,they are only caring about themselves and not of the animals in the world. Can’t they think that what you do can also affect the animals???
