Stop selling trips to SeaWorld Sir Richard
Wish you were here…? The orcas don’t
Lowest standards guaranteed
Holiday companies like Virgin are members of ABTA, the UK Travel Association.
ABTA's guidance states:
“animal handling and contact by the public should be discouraged.”
“animals should be able to escape other individuals, public view and interaction at all times"
“performances… should only involve natural behaviours"
So why are these trips still being offered to the public? Why are the likes of Virgin Holidays still profiting from the cruel captivity industry?
Sir Richard, you claim to be an environmentalist concerned with whale conservation. WE THINK YOU CAN DO BETTER.
Captivity is NOT conservation. It's NOT education. It's NOT fun. It IS cruel.
If you want to get close to the wonders of the ocean then go and see orcas in the wild.
