Jane Goodall: Shut Down SeaWorld!

(SEAWORLD/ORCAS/CELEBRITIES) Jane Goodall, famous for her extensive work with primates, is speaking out against SeaWorld, saying it needs to be shut down. After the release of the documentary Blackfish, SeaWorld has faced much criticism for its inhumane treatment and captivity of orca whales and other marine life. Although SeaWorld claims their facility is inspiring and educational, Goodall recognizes the trauma that whales and dolphins in captivity must endure. Given her animal expertise, it's only fitting that Goodall has emerged as one of the many activists speaking out against the horrors and tragedies associated with the park's questionable practices. Read on to learn more about Goodall's efforts to shut down SeaWorld and free animals from captivity. — Global Animal

Rescued Wildlife Returns To The Jungle

(WILDLIFE/ANIMAL RESCUE/ANIMAL VIDEO) This incredible video documents Animal Defenders International's (ADI) logistically challenging 15-hour operation to return rescued wildlife back to the jungle. During the Operation Spirit of Freedom mission, 39 monkeys, coatis, and kinkajous--saved from circuses and the illegal wildlife trade in Peru--were relocated to the Pilpintuwasi sanctuary in the Amazon rainforest. Living in specially constructed ADI-funded habitats, they will be free to live as close as possible to the lives they would have in the wild. Please help give them the care they need by making a donation today. -- Global Animal
