Contact: Jeanne Turkheimer

World Animal Protection applauds Mayor Daniella Levine Cava and her decision to terminate Miami Seaquarium’s lease, ending nearly 70 years of abhorrent animal cruelty at the venue. This momentous step forward is thanks to the countless advocates who have signed petitions, sent letters, and protested outside the Seaquarium for more than a decade. World Animal Protection is in communication with Miami-Dade County to continue ensuring they are prioritizing the safety and wellbeing of Miami Seaquarium’s captive animals. We hope that other jurisdictions with dolphinariums follow suit and help end this cruel industry forever.
