Hey guys! You should all take a minute to vote “NO” to this bill. Not that this website has any say in the Bill’s passing or not, but still. The reason why I would urge you to vote no is because even if you are against cetacean captivity, the benefits of shows for these animals can be great. They get the majority of their exercise during these shows, and shows provide immense amounts of stimulation and excitement to their day to help keep them from getting bored. Naturally shows aren’t the only part of their day, but they play a big role in the day to day activities of the animals, and can be very beneficial for the animals too, for the reasons stated above and then some. If a bill like this were to be passed, it wouldn’t shut down SeaWorld, it wouldn’t even make them release the whales. All it would do is remove a vital enrichment, exercise, bonding, and varying experience out of the lives of the animals at SeaWorld, thus, in actuality, removing shows would prove to be more harmful than helpful. As it is, if an animal or animals don’t want to perform, they are not required to, so the shows are an optional event for them anyways.
