Why Are Marine Parks So Bad for Animals?

Whales, dolphins, and other marine animals are kept in tiny tanks at marine parks, where they usually have nothing to do but swim in endless circles. 🐋🐬😰 If reading that sentence made you feel claustrophobic, just think about how living this way would feel. The animals are often forced to live with tankmates they may not get along with, which can lead to fighting and painful injuries. 😢

The Miami Seaquarium let Lolita the orca die before she could be released to a seaside sanctuary, allowed animals to eat trash in their enclosures, and ignored its veterinarian’s instructions. 🤬

At SeaWorld, animals have been torn away from their fams and forcibly impregnated. Hundreds of them have died at SeaWorld locations—many far short of their natural life expectancies. 😱 No matter which marine park animals are imprisoned at, one thing’s for sure: Their lives are way less fulfilling than they would be in their natural habitats.
