Thank you to everyone who has helped spread the message of Blackfish, and a special thanks to everyone who has helped circulate and promote my open letter to Jack Hanna. There has been such an enormous uproar of outrage over the atrocities documented in this film, and more over Hanna’s defense of SeaWorld that, you know, I think we just might be able to change things.
Not overnight certainly. But if I personally have heard from so many people who are as saddened and angry as I am, I believe there are enough of us to shut SeaWorld down. Let’s keep it up, keep letting them know how disgusted we are, how we will never be visiting their parks again, that they will never receive another dollar (or pound or lira or what have you) from us. And let us keep the pressure on them to do the very least of all the right things they could do and release Tilikum and Lolita.
If you have not already seen my other post and signed the petitions listed there, I would highly encourage you to! It takes very little time and can make an enormous difference.
Thank you all. The response to my letter has been greater than I ever would have expected. So in a spirit of thanks, here is a recent photo of mine, featuring the wonderful Katie Johnson, which has a very hopeful feel to it.
Thank you, every one of you 🙂
