Please join local PETA supporters in speaking up for Tilikum, an orca who is currently being held captive at SeaWorld Orlando. Saturday, November 9, marks the 30th anniversary of Tilikum’s capture and removal from his family in the wild, and we are inviting you to take a stand for him by urging SeaWorld to let him retire and be released to a sanctuary.
