Chiodos Joins the Fight Against SeaWorld

Chiodos Graham Fielder

Since the release of 2013’s highly talked about documentary Blackfish, the world has looked at SeaWorld in a new, not-so-flattering light. The film—which received critical praise from dozens of major movie and news outlets—is responsible for turning the tide against the controversial marine park and has sparked outrage in hundreds of thousands of supporters who want to see orcas—and all wild animals—freed from captivity.

After watching Blackfish, Craig Owens told peta2, “Not only is it inspirational, but it made you feel, and that’s what I want out of any sort of art. I want to feel.”

Orca whales imprisoned in marine parks like SeaWorld are ripped away from their mothers when they’re just babies and kept in small, empty tanks for years on end. Orcas are highly intelligent, social animals designed to swim for hundreds of miles a day in their natural habitats. Instead they’re deprived of everything that comes naturally to them and driven mad out of frustration, boredom, and depression inside the barren walls of their SeaWorld tanks.

When it comes to standing up for what’s right, Craig Owens knows that there are “things you have to do for the greater good, and not supporting SeaWorld is one of them.”

Join the fight!

Watch Blackfish on Netflix, urge your friends and family never to support SeaWorld, and share Craig’s video on Facebook and Twitter.
