Sign The Petition To End The Torture


    Sign Senator Greg Ball’s Petition to ban the possession and harboring of killer whales in New York State aquariums and sea parks.

    The legislation (S6613) was introduced after the documentary “Blackfish” highlighted the captivity and confinement of Tilikum, an orca whale that has been in confinement for the past 30 years. Large marine animals, such as orca whales, can develop health issues and become agitated from living in the confined spaces that aquariums and sea parks offer.

    Senator Greg Ball hopes to pass the legislation on the 4th Annual Animal Advocacy Day, which will be hosted on May 28th in the New York State Capitol Building. The free, bipartisan event is open to the public and will enable animal supporters to network, share information and lobby their legislators to raise awareness of the need to protect pets and people from abuse.
