San Diego Students Fight Back Against SeaWorld

With the release of Blackfish, more and more people are urging SeaWorld to stop abusing orcas, dolphins, and other animals.

Orcas at SeaWorld are confined to tiny tanks that are the human equivalent of a bathtub, kept in chemically treated water, and grouped incompatibly. The intelligent whales often sustain broken teeth and are in constant pain from snapping and gnawing at the tank gates as a result of stress and aggression.

The animals imprisoned by SeaWorld need us to speak up, and that’s exactly what students in Mr. Palmiotto’s cinematic arts and video production class at Point Loma High School are doing. The talented and compassionate students co-wrote, starred in, and edited a moving public service announcement protesting SeaWorld’s cruelty. Check it out below!

It’s no surprise that peta2 will be honoring these students with a Compassionate Classroom Award for their incredible work speaking up for orcas and other animals abused by SeaWorld.


Now it’s YOUR turn to speak up—share the video with everyone you know!

    I love this movie,video.i mean
    Not even my grandmother,my mom,myself,my family talks about SeaWorld.
    Because we KNOW about the real abuse that SeaWorld gives to their animals.
    It’s sad,disappointing.
    Little kids go to SeaWorld to have fun but it’s NOT fun or ok.

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
