Noah Cyrus Wants You to Speak Up for Orcas Imprisoned at SeaWorld!
Noah Cyrus makes our hearts leap for joy! This übertalented singer is very passionate about animal rights.
In addition to dropping hit after hit and making a huge name for herself in the music industry, Noah has dropped major truth bombs about orcas imprisoned at SeaWorld. She knows that orcas are highly intelligent social animals who should experience the freedom of their natural ocean habitat, not be held captive inside the tiny tanks of a marine abusement park. She wants SeaWorld to “[d]o the right thing and release the orcas to a sanctuary.” Check out her passionate plea:
Life for Orcas at SeaWorld Is Awful
“What a lot of the public doesn’t know [is that] orcas have died living at SeaWorld, and that has not been from old age.”Noah Cyrus
SeaWorld has destroyed families and makes $$ off the misery of the animals it holds captive. Orcas who are imprisoned at the marine park were either torn away from their families in the ocean or bred into a lifetime of suffering.
In nature, they have sophisticated social relationships: They work together to find food and can travel up to 140 miles in the ocean every day! But at SeaWorld, incompatible orcas are grouped together in the same prisons, which causes them to become stressed and aggressive, often leading to injury and sometimes even death. The tiny tanks that they’re confined to leave them with nothing to do but float listlessly or swim in endless circles.
This lonely, unnatural environment causes them to experience immense stress and frustration. They end up gnawing on the metal tank bars, often breaking their teeth, and are given drugs to manage stress-induced behavior. Under these dismal circumstances, it’s no surprise that most orcas at SeaWorld die prematurely, while those in the ocean live an average of 30 to 50 years.
SeaWorld should move these long-suffering animals to seaside sanctuaries so that they can have some semblance of a natural life.
What You Can Do to Help
