Animal Allies will speak out against the imprisonment and forced insemination of dolphins and whales by SeaWorld and urge potential visitors to stay away.

“SeaWorld reduces intelligent and complex marine mammals to farming machines,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA calls on the park to stop drugging and sexually abusing dolphins and whales and urges the public to boycott this hell every day of the year.”
In SeaWorld’s breeding program, male dolphins are masturbated and females are pulled out of the water and sometimes drugged so they can’t retaliate while staff ram semen-filled tubes into their wombs.
PETA — whose motto says, in part, that “animals are not ours for entertainment” — opposes speciesism, a human supremacist worldview.
