As us Biel fans know, Jesse was more than moved by the documentary “Blackfish,” and she has attended SeaWorlds Annual Meeting to submit a question on Peta’s behalf, read what happens below:
“With the release of the documentary Blackfish and PETA’s educational campaign, the public now knows about the devastating effects of keeping orcas captive and closely confined at SeaWorld. Frustrated orcas like Tilikum have worn their teeth down to the nubs by chewing on their enclosures, their dorsal fins collapse, and they die prematurely, reject their young, and harm and kill humans. SeaWorld then tries to mask the orcas’psychosis with psychotropic drugs. As the public hears about this, ticket sales decline. When will SeaWorld develop a plan to move the orcas to a sea pen in a natural setting in line with public opinion?” said Biel.
It’s inspiring to hear Jesse taking part in this movement — we all need to care about the treatement of the animals and use our voice to help. Please head over to Sea World of Hurt to donate or find out how you can get involved.
