Another orca just died at SeaWorld San Diego—this time a young orca named Sumar. I'm hoping that you can take some time this Saturday to join the nationwide day of action to stop SeaWorld's cruelty to animals.
Believe it or not, Sumar was the son of Taima, who died at SeaWorld this summer, and he was fathered by Tilikum, who killed a SeaWorld trainer earlier this year! How many people and animals must die before SeaWorld stops holding animals captive?
We're coordinating protests outside SeaWorld locations across the country this Saturday, and it would mean so much if you could join your local community members in speaking up for captive animals. We must send a clear message to SeaWorld that these tragedies need to end and that life in a concrete tank is no life at all for these wild animals!
What: Day of Action Against SeaWorld
When: Saturday, September 11, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Where: Outside SeaWorld, 500 SeaWorld Dr., San Diego (Please meet at the corner of SeaWorld Drive and Sea World Way. Park in the first dirt parking lot on the right hand side of Mission Bay Parkway off of SeaWorld Drive here.)
All materials will be provided, so just bring yourself and anyone you can recruit to join you! For questions or to RSVP, contact me at EricD@peta.org and be sure to include in your e-mail the name of the city where the protest that you will be attending will be held. You can also RSVP on Facebook and help recruit more people to come out by inviting them to the event, cross-posting this message on Facebook and Twitter, and e-mailing everyone you know!
