End Captive Orca Breeding In China

This petition made change with 490 supporters!

On the 14th of September, 2016, SeaWorld (one of the most well known marine parks in the world) ended their captive orca breeding program following major backlash after the release of the 2013 documentary/film "Blackfish". 

Yet on the 24th of February in 2017, China's biggest amusement park operator- a.k.a, The Chimelong Group- opened a captive orca breeding center to feed the growing demand of performing marine mammals. Currently, the facility houses 9 orcas; 5 males and 4 females, all of which are wild caught from Russia.

Orcas, the largest of the dolphins, suffer in captivity- they die much quicker in captivity (even though their lifespans are similar to humans) because of diseases they wouldn't get in the ocean. Moreover, captivity is captivity; no matter how gentle the jailer or how lavish the jail. Please sign this petition so as to put sufficient pressure on marine parks globally to end this unethical aquatic circus industry!
