Joanna Krupa

“These animals, they’re in prison their whole life. Imagine being born to that.”

Ariana Madix

“Each pod has their own language. So you have orcas from all different pods who are living in these bathtubs, and they’re fighting with each other because they have no way of communicating. They’re confused, and they’re full of anguish, and it shouldn’t be that way.”

Ewan McGregor

“[Blackfish] and ‘The Cove’ should be watched before deciding to take your kids to any sea life parks.”

Krysten Ritter

“If I could say something to SeaWorld, I would say, ‘I appreciate that you have decided to end the [orca] breeding program. That’s awesome, and it’s a step in the right direction. But it’s not enough, and it’s time to empty the tanks.'”

Eli Roth

“All the violence and suffering in my films is pretend—no one is hurt, ever. Sadly, the same is not true at SeaWorld, which targets their entertainment at families and children.”

“[W]hen will SeaWorld allow the animals it holds captive to return to their home—the ocean—by retiring them to a seaside sanctuary?”

Bella Thorne

“When I was a little girl, I did a commercial for SeaWorld, and even then, I knew there wasn’t something right. F— the people that are always abusing animals!”
