Release Orca Tilikum!

This petition had 3,423 supporters

Tilikum is the biggest Orca - or Killer Whale - in captivity in the entire world. He has been the cause of three (human) deaths, and though this is sad for the victims and victims' families, it is NOT Tilikum's fault! Tilikum has lived in captivity since he was a young whale. Ever since he has been trained to entertain people. This is not a natural life for an Orca! Our goal is to get enough signatures to make SeaWorld release Tilikum into the wild.
