TV Star Laura Vandervoort Held Captive!
In her stunning new ad for peta2, actor Laura Vandervoort is naked and alone, confined to a tank to prove that being trapped and forced to perform “for entertainment” is no way to live. Laura only had to endure this experience for a few moments. Captive orcas lose their freedom for their entire lives.
Go behind-the-scenes with Laura Vandervoort in her exclusive peta2 interview!
Orcas in the wild:
- Spend their entire lives in pods with their families
- Use sonar to communicate with one another (and each pod has its own specific language)
- Swim up to 100 miles every day
- Live an average of 30 to 50 years
- Are stolen from their families and isolated
- Get confused and frustrated trying to communicate when their sonar bounces off the concrete walls of their tanks and echoes endlessly
- Spend years trapped in barren tanks that, to them, are the size of a bathtub
- Live an average of only nine years
