Actor Jason Biggs of Orange Is the New Black and American Pie fame hopes to reach people about SeaWorld’s awful practices through humor. He wants viewers to be both amused and profoundly upset after watching his video for PETA about the deplorable conditions that orcas endure in captivity.
Orcas at SeaWorld are inbred and trapped in cramped tanks, and baby orcas are torn away from their mothers.
SeaWorld is a horrible place for orcas, who endure stress, boredom, and depression in captivity. In the wild, orcas live in large social groups, spending their lives with their families. They’re intelligent animals who are meant to swim up to 100 miles a day, but at SeaWorld, they’re confined to a tank that, for humans, would be equivalent to a bathtub.

You can help orcas by using PETA’s form to ask SeaWorld to release the captive animals into ocean sanctuaries.
