You Need To Get Behind Krysten Ritter And Her New Campaign!

After the release of the controversial documentary Black Fish, the ill treatment of Orcas in parks such as SeaWorld have been in the global spotlight.

With various celebrities including Matt Damon and Olivia Wilde speaking out against the cruelty these poor orcas endure, another celebrity has joined in the protest against SeaWorld.

Krysten Ritter, the star from Marvel series Jessica Jones, has joined PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in their campaign that urges SeaWorld to free their orca whales into sea sanctuaries.

Wearing a black and white swimsuit and banging against the glass tank, Ritters photograph has the words ‘Break Free’ across it.

Check out my new campaign! I've always felt a connection to animals and especially Orcas – maybe I was one in a past life, who knows! I've proudly partnered with @PETA to fight to free SeaWorld’s orcas from a life of swimming in circles, breaking teeth on bars and suffering from severe psychological trauma and deep depression. Big thanks to the filmmakers of #blackfish for shining a light on this issue and for getting people (myself included) fired up to try and help. That's how you make change. Let's tell SeaWorld it's time to empty the tanks and allow the orcas to spend the rest of their days in a seaside sanctuary! Let's all have empathy for these amazing creatures and speak out on their behalf. Let's all hope for the day when orcas in captivity becomes ancient history. Watch the movie Blackfish or even some light googling will highlight how wildly intelligent Orcas are and how devoted they are to their families and how being trapped in a tank takes away their integrity and is against their every instinct. You can also check out the video I did on the peta website and I believe it's also on People's website. #leadwithlove #emptythetanks
