Save the Whales started this petition to State Representative Joe Sanfelippo and

Killer whales need room to be free. They are held captive in small concrete pools for humans enjoyment. They are taken from their family from the wild, and put in with a whale they know nothing about. In some cases they become aggressive towards each other and when one is being attacked in the wild they could go and swim away but when they are held in their tanks they can’t get away, causing them to lose their lives. Sea world lies to us, they say “Whales live to about 20-35 years old”. When they are held captive yes, they get health conditions due to not getting fed enough, getting abused,etc. When out in the natural habitat whales live to about the same life span as a human would. Killer whales are not an aggressive species until they are stressed then yes they are. Attacks in the wild are very rare, whilst when in captivity there have been 4 recorded deaths. This is caused by stress, frustration, starvation. No animal deserves this. Sea World doesn’t care about their well being they just want the money and most think it is cute and fun. But I wouldn’t want my children growing up thinking that keeping animals in tanks way to small for them is okay. I am 14 years old. It is in humane that people think it is okay to do this. I would love to help to do anything to get Sea World shut down.
