Harry Styles Calls Out SeaWorld
On One Direction’s US Tour kickoff concert in San Diego, Harry Styles called out SeaWorld. After noticing Dolphin Project Ambassador and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams among the concert goers, Harry asked the sold out crowd at Qualcom Stadium:
Does anyone like dolphins? Don’t go to SeaWorld!
Harry became passionate about dolphins and after watching ‘The Cove’ & ‘Blackfish’ documentaries. Having visited captive dolphin facilities in the past, he’s made an informed decision to raise awareness about their plight. He reached out to Dolphin Project’s Ric & Lincoln O’Barry.
“We’ve reached a tipping point,” said O’Barry. Dolphin activists no longer represent the fringes of public opinion. “Ringling Bros. [Circus] saw the writing on the wall and is ending their use of elephants. SeaWorld doubled down on their position. They have ramped up their advertising, yet their stock continues to drop. The issue of keeping dolphins in captivity has gone mainstream.”
Ric O’Barry is asking that everyone take the pledge not to buy a ticket to a dolphin show.
