Killer whales in captivity

This petition had 1,114 supporters

Killer whales are sea worlds main attraction, and some people are blind to what's going on.  Taking a child to the killer whale (AKA orka) show maybe the time if there life. But what they don't know is that the killer whales are not having a great time doing all the tricks you see them do. If you have noticed the whales flopped over dorsal fin then you should know that it's a sign of depression. Killer whales maybe depressed that they don't have enough space to swim, or that they are not with there pod. In the wild the dorsal fin points straight up but in captivity it's slumped over. Killer whales are large mammals so they need a large area to swim and people and places that hold them captive to accommodate what they need. As a result of not having space or other issues the whale gets aggressive which can lead to death or serious injuries for the people handling them. Captive killer whales have killed and injured more people than any wild whales. killer whales that live in the wild are known to live 2x longer than a whale in captivity. So please help these animals live a long and healthy life.
