China’s first orca breeding base

The anti-captivity campaign has made considerable ground at SeaWorld over the last few years, but clearly there’s a long way to go in the rest of the world. Nine Russian wild caught orca have just been announced in Guandong, China as part of a captive breeding programme. This feels like such a huge step backwards 😟

California bans orca captivity and breeding following SeaWorld’s decision to end its program – LA Times

Yes! Let’s hope the rest of the world soon follow California’s example 🌎🌏🌍

SeaWorld challenged the legality of the stipulations that the California Coastal Commission placed on building their ‘Blue World’ project (you can build it but you can’t breed orcas) so the state passed a law to make it illegal anyway.

The announcement back in March that SeaWorld would end their captive breeding programme will have to hold fast at SeaWorld San Diego now!!! No going back πŸ’™πŸ¬

SEAWORLD HAVE ANNOUNCED THEY WILL END CAPTIVE BREEDING OF ITS ORCAS. CURRENT CAPTIVES WILL BE THE LAST! 🐬

OH MY GOODNESS!! 😒😒
I am elated and (almost) lost for words.
Thank you to everyone who has supported and shared my posts and joined the cause! Look what we can do when we stand together! Orca captivity will soon be a thing of the past in North America!

The next step is to fight for the release of those currently captive! #emptythetanks
