Marine Mammal Shows

The ASPCA is opposed to the exhibition and display of large marine mammals in commercial venues or theme parks, and is strongly opposed to taking marine mammals from the wild for this purpose. The ASPCA does not believe it is possible to meet the complex physical, behavioral and social needs of these animals in captivity. The ASPCA does not support “swim with” programs for any purpose if the marine mammals are confined or restricted in any way.
