Petition text

A Russian company has captured seven orcas in the sea of Okhotsk last summer. It will send two of the killer whales in Sochi, to perform at the Winter Olympics games next month.

Local authorities have undergone major operations to modernize the Sochi dolphinarium and are currently waiting for arrival of the two orcas, which are expected to boost earning at the Olympics.

Capturing and displaying the killer whales brings immense suffering to the mammals and their families. When in captivity, the orcas are subjected to deprivation for years to come.

This is not the spirit of the Olympic Games. The orca show must be cancelled as soon as possible! Enough entertainment will be provided by the participants!
