Just ask 13 year-old Rose McCoy, who, for the second year in a row, jumped the barricades and disrupted the SeaWorld float during the 88th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Although activists unsuccessfully petitioned to have the SeaWorld float, titled “Waves of Conservation,” removed from the parade, McCoy and others held signs in protest of SeaWorld.
There is nothing educational about keeping dolphins imprisoned in concrete tanks, cut-off from fresh air, sunlight, natural rhythms of the sea, normal socialization and the complete sensory experience living in the wild provides. There are no “waves of conservation” gained by creating fictitious sets where dolphins are mere props to be made fun of, or gawked at.
Says national TV journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell: “Social media is the key to ending animal exploitation. Everyone can spread this. Everyone can be media 4 animals.”
