WestJet will no longer partner with SeaWorld – because they don’t agree with what they are doing

As a result of amazing documentaries such as Blackfish and The Cove, everyone is now able to know about the mistreatment that marine animals held in aquariums experience on a daily basis. As a result of this sharp raise in awareness, tourist attractions such as SeaWorld have seen their ticket sales plummet to historic lows. SeaWorld has opted to concede this information from investors and is now in the middle of a class-action lawsuit, in addition to an investigation carried out by the Department of Justice.

More and more ethical companies have agreed to cut this with SeaWorld, as  result of a campaign carried out by PETA, which saw over 160, 000 concerned activists sent out letters to companies expalining why SeaWorld should be denounced for their practices. PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman had the following to say: SeaWorld is obviously not a compassionate company, we are therefore calling on all consumers to stay away from SeaWorld or any company that is endorsing such practices.


The letters promopted companies such as Thomas Cook, Hyundai Motor America, Jet Blue and Taco Bell to cease any form of collaboration with SeaWorld. And now, WestJet executives have announced plans to do the same, which is excellent news!


According to PETA, over 40 orcas, 300 whales and dolphins and 500+ seals have perished in captivity at SeaWorld. Confined into a bathtub-like enclosures instead of roaming the endless oceans, forced to perform degrading tricks in order to amuse ignorant tourists, life at SeaWorld has been nothing short of miserable for these majestic sea creatures.


Over the years, SeaWorld has done nothing to address the plight of these animals. On the contrary, it has ignored them completely.  


We can only hope that the mounting pressure will lead to the company’s collapse and the remaining marine animals will be released in the wild, where they belong, as soon as possible.


In the meantime, we would like to take the opportunity to thank West Jet for doing the right thing and cutting ties with SeaWorld!
