Release Tilikum. Let Tilikum live the rest of his life in freedom.

    1. Petition by

      New York, NY

Tilikum has been in captivity for too long and NO living soul deserves this kind of treatment. All animals should be FREE and in their own environment, not used for personal entertainment. Tilikum was forced to mate, do tricks, and live in a tank that is not even 1% of his natural environment. He was isolated for a year from other whales. Whales are social animals and can't be alone or else they go crazy. The way humans treat Tilikum and the other Orcas at SeaWorld is DISTGUSTING and INHUMANE. Imagine being trapped in a jail cell for the rest for your life. Imagine being given food only when you do tricks. Imgaine having no contact with people for a year. You would get a little crazy and frustrated. PLEASE HELP TILIKUM BY HELPING HIM BE RELEASED INTO A SEAPEN. Being released into the ocean would not do him good becuase he does not know how to hunt and does not have a pod which he can depend on. At least being released into a sea sanctuary will be a better enviorment for him.

To:
SeaWorld, http://seaworldparks.com/en/seaworld-orlando/
Release Tilikum. Let him be free. No animal deserves such treatment. He needs a real family and a real life. A life worth living for. He should not live for others but for himself.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      The High Court in Den Haag has informed the Free Morgan Foundation that the verdict for Morgan could now take up to a further six weeks to be released. (The verdict was originally scheduled for release on the 15th of Jan 2014). Although disappointed, because every day of potential freedom for Morgan is precious, we are confident that the law supports the release of Morgan and look forward to The High Court’s verdict scheduled for Wednesday 19 Feb 2014. However, each Monday, you can check whether

      Thank You for signing this petition. Many people are uneducated on how humans at SeaWorld affect the Whales and many of them think that they are treated well there. Don not only sign petitions, educate your community on these actions. We have to start taking an action towards freeing whales or else this petition is useless. Signing this is a big step towards our goal

      humanely release the Orca whale known as Tilikum to a seapen for rehab

      Dear sir/madam, Our message is simple: keeping a 12,000+ pound Orca whale in a pool, (that is less than a fraction of 1% of his natural habitat,) is simply illogical. "Extracting" an animal from his natural environment, where he would normally swim vast distances, dive to extreme depths and spend his entire life with his close knit family pod is simply unethical.

      I have been researching Tilikum for years while studying Orca whales. His behavior reflects years of psychological abuse and torture, while the trainers may be well intended for the way they interact with him, it will not and cannot make up for trauma he has experienced in his life.

      The way he lives now, the pain he continues to express is devastating.

      he floats almost lifeless in his current tank and is clearly a very depressed creature.

      he needs to be rehabilitated to live in the ocean, Keiko proved we CAN do this.

      The sea pen is the first step on that road.

      He still has the potential for recovery and rehabilitation.
