Keeping whales and dolphins in tanks is wrong. Wild whales and dolphins can travel up to one hundred miles a day. They are highly intelligent and live in complex societies. Yet, they are still taken from their homes and families and confined them for human ‘entertainment.
please stop paying for their suffering.

BREAKING: Takara’s baby DIED at #SeaWorld. RIP Kyara 💔 You deserved so much more than just months in a tiny tank. #BoycottSeaWorldDay [FULL feature in bio]

I'm saddened to announce that SeaWorld's 3-month-old calf, Kyara, has died at SeaWorld San Antonio. Prior to her death, it was announced that Kyara was suffering from an infection, believed to be pneumonia, and had been moved to the animal hospital for treatment. Despite her veterinary team's best efforts, Kyara's health declined and she died prematurely. Pneumonia is a serious condition that is common in captivity and in the wild. As mortality rates for calves under 7 months old sit at 37-50% (NOAA), and the fact pneumonia has a tendency to kill quickly, the odds were unfortunately against Kyara.
Hopefully Kyara's family, particularly her mother Takara, recover quickly from the loss.

This is a story from 2 years ago that changed everything for #SlaveWorld. Thank you @HarryStyles.
_
Harry famously told his #OneDirection fans to #BoycottSeaWorld which resulted in more global outrage that #BlackFish did, sent Twitter into overdrive, sent SeaWorld's profits crashing, which culminated in them making the decision to stop captive orca breeding and phase out their orca shows.
_
He did that. That is the power of celebrities. They really can use their fame, voices and platforms to change the world but very few bother to use their influence for good as most are selfish. Hopefully more celebs will be like Harry going forward #BoycottSeaWorldDay #EmptyTheTanks #CaptivityKills

#Oceanencounters are hard to capture in just one single frame. I always try to add an expression of how I feel when in the middle of an ocean date. One of my favorite places on earth is the unique environment around Ascension Island and more particular Boatswain Bird Island, a breeding colony for seabirds in the middle of the South Atlantic. This is my personal expression of Dr. Earle's words 'No Blue, no Green' in honour of sharks conservation. Call it my Yin and Yang!

Some nights on the water with killer whales are the definition of peaceful. Last night, we travelled along with the T34s, T37 and T37Bs around Turn Point and into Prevost Harbor. With the setting sun behind us, we listened with sheer wonderment to their harmonious exhalations. @eaglewingtours

On July 18th, Sanibel, a 37-year-old bottlenose dolphin, died at Loro Parque. Captured in Flordia Keys in September 1986 at approximately 6 years old, Sanibel spent over three decades in captivity and gave birth to two calves at Loro Parque. The first calf was born in 1991 but sadly died 11 days later. More recently, in November 2011, Sanibel gave birth to Ilse who is currently 6 years old and remains at Loro Parque. According to the marine park's veterinary staff, Sanibel had been battling a long-term disease and became unresponsive to treatment. A necropsy will be performed by Professor Antonio Fernández at ULPGC to determine the cause of death.

In other news, on July 17th, captive-born female Huf n Puf, a 17-year-old bottlenose dolphin, gave birth to her third calf at the Mirage Dolphin Habitat. Huf n Puf gave birth for the first time in September 2008, resulting in a female dolphin known as Bella. Less than 3 years later, in August 2011, she gave birth to a male known as MiraMar. The gender of Huf n Puf's calf is currently unknown and has not yet been given a name.

@Regrann from @chilisonwheels - #Kyara, only 3 months old and the latest fatality of #SeaWorld, died #yesterday. She was born into #captivity and was confined in a small #pool where she could only #swim in circles, not the 100 or so miles a day that she would roam in the #wild.

Yesterday Takaras baby Kyara, died in captivity from what they're saying is "pneumonia". Kyara was only 3 months old and (thankfully) the last orca to be bred in captivity. THESE ANIMALS ARE WAY TOO BIG TO BE KEPT IN BATHTUBS!! Put them in ocean side tanks let them feel the rhythm of the ocean where they belong!! This line yanks at my heart. #DrainTheTanks #Blackfish #BeneathTheSurface 😭🐳 if you want to help head over to @sand_cloud and either make a donation straight to one of the Non-Profits or get yourself a t-shirt or towel. 10% of proceeds go to non-profits to help save marine life. #Orcas #Sandcloud #SeaworldSucks #RipKyara #RipTilikum
BTW : this line is from @johnjhargrove's book "Beneath the surface: Killer whales, seaworld and the truth beyond Blackfish" it's a must read if you've seen Blackfish! .

8 year old J44 Moby swims with big boys K26 Lobo and L87 Onyx. Moby was J17 Princess Angeline's youngest offspring before J53 Kiki came along, as well as her only son. Just as females pass down the knowledge of how to be a good matriarch to their daughters, the males pass down lessons on the roles they take in the pod. J44 has a lot to learn - especially now that he's a big brother! 💙

Hero!✌️Academy Award nominated actor James Cromwell went vegan after the filming of 'Babe' and has been a fantastically loud voice for the voiceless ever since. Here he is met with aggression and violence for being a voice for the Orcas.

And still some humans react to animal abuse by violence to a human who is trying to educate and help save these magnificent animals 😞 #Repost @standup911

Academy Award Nominee James Cromwell stood and bravely protested during a SeaWorld Orca Encounter show — despite an aggressive and violent reaction from a few of the “abusement” park’s fans. Cromwell and his fellow protestors spoke on behalf of the orcas who can’t speak for themselves and did so on a Facebook Live feed for the world to see.

Cromwell took the megaphone and commanded the audience’s attention. “Orcas deserve a full life in the ocean, not a life sentence of swimming endless circles until they drop dead from disease,” he started. “My friends at PETA and I want SeaWorld to move these intelligent animals to seaside sanctuaries without delay.” While SeaWorld has agreed not to breed orcas in captivity, since the backlash caused by Blackfish, but it isn’t enough. Orcas and other beautiful animals are still suffering today. PETA’s protest asks, simply, for SeaWorld to build and establish sanctuaries so orcas can finally have peace after being forced to live in, what is for them, a tiny, cramped space with no cover from the sun. Whales don’t belong in tanks.Cromwell and the protestors were later handcuffed and taken into police custody. We applaud all of them for their courage and for standing up for animals.

A letter from a dedicated SeaWorld San Antonio Trainer (S. Connor) about the passing of Kyara:
_
"This is been a long and heart breaking week for many of us at SeaWorld. We lost an amazing spirit who had brought our hearts many joys. From the time we heard that Takara was pregnant nearly two years ago, to when we when we could see her in ultrasounds, feel her move inside Takara while gave her mom rub downs, saw her born into this world, nurse for the first time, interact with her sisters, learn to play along side them, and began to take interest and interact with us, her trainers.
_
For my friends and family who aren't apart of my SeaWorld family, you may have questions about what happened with this calf. Or wonder if what we do at SeaWorld is in the best interests of the whales' when you read some of the news of us out there. Please feel free to ask me your questions. We have nothing to hide and I want you to be educated in the truth.
_
The truth is, where there is life, there is unfortunately death. We must all accept this. Nature is not fair. Even with our excellent veterinary care, resturant quailty food, loving care, we cannot cheat death for our animals in the most severe times. What we did most certainly do is gave this little whale her best fighting chance for life, working tirelessly for her and her pod.
_
This little whale's short life does not reflect on poor living conditions of our whales. It reflects on the truth of nature, that this can happen. When looking at the science and facts of the matter, our whales are very healthy. The survival rates of SeaWorld's calves (ages 40 days to 2 years) is 96.6%. A studied wild population's (the southern Residents in Washington State) survival rate of their calves from 6 months to 2 years of age is a sad 79.9%. Significantly less than that of ours at SeaWorld. Meaning the wild population's young animals have a significantly less chance of living." [1/2]
