Our Audience

The Problem
Killer Whale captivity in SeaWorld is purely for entertainment value and completely obliterates their quality of life which has proven to create deadly consequences



Issue Two
Increase tank size
Only required to be twice the length of whale
Orcas swim hundreds of miles per day in the wild
Lack of exercise leads to collapsed fins
Small tanks leave no room for families to remain together
