Sea Parks

What constitutes a sea park?

A sea park is any place where cetaceans (whales and dolphins) as well as other marine mammals are held to perform for human entertainment.

Why shouldn’t I go to them?

  • Animals are separated from their offspring at birth causing severe social and emotional damage
  • Animals are captured from the wild which often resorts in a mass slaughter of remaining individuals that were not collected for the parks, for consumption
  • Animals are held in swimming pools which are too small for comfortable and stimulating movement. Car parks in these ventures are often allocated more space than the enclosures
  • Animals are often kept with members of different social groups which often leads in fight related damage to their skin
  • Orca fins often flop over in captivity
  • Animal lifespan is reduced

Where can I see marine mammals instead?

  • Whale watching tours
  • Dolphin cruises
  • Viewing points on coastlines
