NY Senator Greg Ball has proposed a new bill prohibiting the possession and harboring of killer whales in 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.”
Please sign the petition and share it.
The awareness raised by Blackfish is a big reason why it won Documentary of the Year at this year’s Urchie Awards.

"She was always very beautiful. That picture of Linda on the Tube shows her perfectly: beautiful hands, absolutely no make-up, just the structure of the face. The argyle socks that everyone used to make fun of. She had two pairs and used to wear a red one with a green one. She was a very natural girl, naturally blonde. It was a very casual look." - Sir Paul McCartney, April 6, 2008,The Sunday Times
