Amanda Holden goes underwater to protest Sea World
By Staff on Friday, June 1, 2018
Wearing a billowing gown and pressing her hands against a glass wall, Amanda Holden is entirely submerged underwater in a new PETA campaign that proclaims, “All Animals Want to be Free”
The ads, read, “Boycott SeaWorld or any marine park that keeps orcas, dolphins and other animals captive.”

In a behind the scenes video the Britain’s Got Talent judge explains that orcas suffer in marine parks like SeaWorld, where they swim monotonously around tiny concrete tanks.
“These are animals with their own cultures and their own language,” says Holden in the video. “The more we understand about the extraordinary capabilities of these wonderful whales, the more we can realise just how disgusting their captivity and confinement is.”
She points out that while no whales or dolphins have been held captive in the UK since the 1990s, marine parks continue to operate abroad.
PETA is calling on the public and businesses such as to stop supporting the marine park, especially in light of its recently failed animal-welfare audit.
Holden joins a long list of celebrities – including Krysten Ritter, Sharon Osbourne, Noah Cyrus, Paul O’Grady, the late Sir Roger Moore, and many others – who have teamed up with PETA to speak out against marine-mammal captivity.
