New York Animal Activists Rally to Demand that the Blackstone Group/SeaWorld Release Tilikum to a Sanctuary and Demand a Tilikum’s Law that Would Ban Keeping Captive Whales and Dolphins for Entertainment
 
New York, NY- New York Animal Activists have announced a rally for Thursday, March 18th at 4:30pm at the Blackstone Group’s office building (345 Park Avenue, at 51st Street). The rally is being held in the wake of the recent death of a trainer at SeaWorld
and the decades long captivity of the whales and dolphins that are held there.
 
The Blackstone Group Owns SeaWorld. SeaWorld bought Tilikum back in 1992. They have held many captive whales and dolphins there in abnormal conditions. The trainer’s death has renewed the controversy that has always existed in keeping these whales and
dolphins captive. Media coverage of this trainer’s death has been widely reported and discussed.
 
The United States Department of Agriculture, Animal Plant Inspection arguably has the authority to remove Tilikum if it deems he is suffering. However, the only real way to stop the exploitation of these intelligent and complex marine mammals, is to pass
a Tilikum’s Law which would ban all people, including aquarium parks like SeaWorld, from possessing and breeding whales and dolphins for entertainment purposes.
 
The whales and dolphins are ripped from their natural habitat, the ocean, and forced to perform while they are kept in small concrete pools. They are kept in conditions that are physically and psychologically destructive. Activists want the public to
become a force for change and support a Tilikum’s Law that would make it illegal to keep these animals and use them for entertainment and money making purposes.
