It’s been a decade since the release of the documentary Blackfish , whose subject, Tilikum, died after 33 years in a concrete tank. But at SeaWorld, orcas are still swimming in endless circles and breaking their teeth by gnawing in frustration on the concrete corners and metal bars of their cramped tanks and other dolphins and whales are still being forcibly impregnated, sometimes after being drugged.
Dozens of companies—including Airbnb, Booking.com, JetBlue, Southwest Airlines, and Tripadvisor—have severed ties with SeaWorld, but AAA and some of its member clubs continue to promote the cruel company. It’s time they stopped.
AAA says feedback from its members and the public is its most valuable source of information, so we need your help to let the organization know that it’s wrong to promote an abusement park such as SeaWorld, which deprives emotionally complex, social animals of nearly everything that’s natural and important to them.
Please ask the motor club to do the right thing and stop selling tickets to SeaWorld. If you’re a AAA member, add that information to the message below and remind the company that animal abuse is a very serious issue to you.
Follow up by making a polite call to the organization at 1-800-313-7245 urging it to end all affiliation with SeaWorld. (Note: AAA’s office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.)
