Turtles crushed, birds stepped on! Stop Animal Abusers From Coming to Georgia Mall!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


Urban Retail, owner of the Mall at Stonecrest in Lithonia, Georgia has plans to allow SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium space at the mall. SeaQuest employees have reported seeing:

  • birds stepped on and killed,
  • turtles crushed by children,
  • an octopus boiled alive when the tank's water temperature changed and,
  • a dead otter at one of their facilities.

The owners of SeaQuest have a long history of animal abuse. At their now-closed Portland Aquarium, more than 200 animals reportedly died over the course of three months—many allegedly from starvation, infections, and other seemingly preventable causes.

Ammon Covino, involved in the opening of SeaQuest aquariums in Utah and Nevada, has served multiple stints in prison for violations related to an illegal wildlife trafficking conviction.

The recently opened SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium in Littleton, Colorado, has been plagued with issues including a cease and desist order by state officials regarding its bird exhibit.

Georgia Animal Rights and Protection has reached out to the owners of the Mall at Stonecrest but have not received a reply. Please help us stop this cruel business from coming to Georgia.

SIGN AND SHARE this petition to urge the mall owners to reject SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium’s request for space at the mall!
