I'll admit, sometimes it's hard to tell if a shark is happy or sad. (Well, except for Bruce.) But I can tell you, that a tank is not nearly as much fun as the ocean for any marine animal. Here's 5 reasons to avoid marine parks and aquariums:
1. Because sad seals sucks.
2. Because if we love them we should leave them alone.
[Read enough? Make the pledge to never attend a marine park or aquarium now.]
3. Because it's just not natural.
4. Because orcas don't deserve to have their babies taken away from them.
5. Because by simply not attending a marine park or aquarium you can help end this cruelty!
These places only exist to "entertain" us. So if we don't go, they can't continue to exist. What's more, it's way cooler to interact with marine animals in their natural habitat. Check out these lucky tourists hanging out with a mother and baby whale :)
