California Coastal Commission Delays Vote on SeaWorld Expansion.

The former Real Housewives of Miami star, 36, wears only black and white paint in images for a new PETA ad that brings attention to orca whales kept in captivity.

After receiving about 75,000 letters and emails on the treatment of orcas in captivity, the California Coastal Commission has delayed for two months a vote on whether to allow SeaWorld San Diego to build larger tanks for the park’s killer whales.The former supermodel is a faithful supporter, and this campaign is an effort to publicize a boycott of Orlando’s SeaWorld because it keeps killer whales captive for decades.

Supermodel Joanna Krupa has teamed up with PETA for the organization’s latest ad campaign, which puts SeaWorld on blast for the marine mammals they keep in captivity. The so-called amusement park announced plans last year to nearly double the size of its killer whale environment with a new facility, called Blue World (which, fittingly, sounds depressing). These animals, they’re in prison their whole life.” “I can only envision and feel the pain of these animals being stuck in a tiny aquarium, because normally orcas … swim 100 miles a day. [H]ere, they’ve been captured since they were little babies or they’re masturbated to … make more babies. … It’s like, why? But critics of the marine-themed park oppose the project, describing it as a marketing ploy to fool the public into believing the orcas are living in a healthy environment. “This is basically window dressing for an orca prison at SeaWorld,” said Jared Goodman, a lawyer for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. “These conditions would do virtually nothing to improve the lives of the animals confined there.” “The proposed Blue World project will provide not only an expanded habitat for whales, but also new opportunities for researchers to conduct studies that will benefit killer whales and other cetaceans in the wild,” said Dr.

For the profit of selfish human beings?” she continued. “I had no idea this goes on, and now other people may not know that this goes on, either, and I want to educate them. A Long Way From Home.” The campaign aims to put pressure on SeaWorld, in particular. “For me, animals are not that much different from human beings,” Krupa said in a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot. “We both feel pain.

She is a genuine animal-lover, and I think truly believes her cleavage is gonna save these whales, rather than contribute to a seedy organization that consistently undermines and de-legitimizes the animal rights battles it claims to support. SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. has been under attack by animal rights groups since the release in 2013 of the documentary “Blackfish,” which accuses the SeaWorld parks of neglecting and abusing its orcas. In addition to building the larger tanks, SeaWorld has launched an advertising campaign to dispute charges from its critics, and it has promised to contribute $10 million to research on the species. The company also released a study last week by three SeaWorld researchers and the head of biological programs at the Minnesota Zoo that says orcas in SeaWorld parks live as long as killer whales in the wild.

The Coastal Commission, which has jurisdiction over construction along the state’s shoreline, was scheduled to vote on SeaWorld’s expansion plan in August but has instead delayed the vote until its meeting in Long Beach in October. “The item was pushed to October to give staff more time to ensure that all viewpoints and relevant information are addressed in any final recommendation,” a commission spokeswoman said. “I care about orcas, and I’m sure you do, too,” the letter reads. “Please deny SeaWorld the opportunity to build a bigger prison. Jason Biggs, Marisa Miller, Jessica Biel, Alec Baldwin and others have joined forces to help get the message across that SeaWorld is in direct association with the abuse of orcas and other marine mammals.

Earlier this year, speaking at a local TED event in Bend, Oregon, she said removing orcas from their mothers and placing them by themselves in a tank, would be the equivalent of ripping a toddler away from her mother’s arms.
