Thank you to Heart for making the compassionate decision to say no to SeaWorld animal cruelty. They've listened to fans like me and joined Barenaked Ladies and Willie Nelson in taking a stand for kindness. I'm a new activist, but know so many people were active on Facebook and Twitter in addition to this Change.org petition, so thank you all. Let's keep the pressure on other artists scheduled to perform so they hear from fans and the general public. If you haven't already, go watch Blackfish.

Animal captivity is a cruel and unjust life. These animals have been ripped from their families and natural habitats for entertainment purposes. These social beings do not thrive in captivity and their mental and physical health is at risk.

There is no education in watching animals perform for your entertainment.  By visiting marine parks, zoos and the like you coninue to support this inhumane practice. These animals deserve to br free. Please reconsider.

      After watching Blackfish, I realized just how inhumane it is to keep theses beautiful, intelligent animals in captivity. The heartless treatment of them and the destruction of their families was heart wrenching, cruel and completely unnecessary. We are able to get amazing footage of these creatures through photography and video. We don't need to see them jump through hoops just for our entertainment. It's morally and ethically incomprehensible that anyone watching Blackfish can condone the captivity of these animals anymore.

      Being born in the 60's, I adore you and truly know from my "heart" that once you know the truth about how orcas are captured and how inhumane an existence that they live in captivity that you will make the right decision.

      This is important to me because I don not believe people should take away from a whale or dolphin and not care.

      die Tierwelt muss vor den "Übertieren"- "auch Mensch genannt" geschützt werden
