Singer Noah Cyrus Uses Her Voice To Advocate For SeaWorld’s Captive Orcas To Be Released To A Sanctuary

“Trapped” underwater in a tiny tank close to the wide-open ocean, singer and actor Noah Cyrus stars in a powerful new PETA campaign that proclaims, “Life’s No Beach in Captivity. Boycott SeaWorld.”

The ad, which aims to put pressure on the abusement park to retire the long-suffering orcas it holds captive to seaside sanctuaries, was shot by top celebrity photographer Brian Bowen Smith and was made possible by James Costa and The Archibald Family Foundation, both proud PETA supporters.

In an exclusive interview with PETA, Cyrus likened animals held in captivity to be “like living in your bedroom for your entire life and never being able to go outside.”

PETA notes that in the wild, orcas form complex relationships, work cooperatively to find food, and traverse up to 140 miles in the ocean every day.

But orcas at SeaWorld are housed in incompatible groups inside tiny tanks, and some are even given the drug diazepam to manage their stress-induced aggressive behavior.

So far, a staggering 41 orcas have died on SeaWorld’s watch, and six marine mammals have died at its parks this year alone.

Cyrus joins a long list of celebrities including her brother, Trace Cyrus, as well as Jhené Aiko, Steve Aoki, Travis Barker, Fifth Harmony, Kesha, and P!nk who have teamed up with PETA to promote kindness towards animals.
