Target: Wang Xuguang, Executive Director and CEO of Haichang Ocean Park
Goal: Move neglected animals from barren, unstimulating zoo exhibits to accredited sanctuary.
A number of animals are currently being held in exhibits that are barren and painted a bright, artificial blue, and dark except for flashes from the visitors’ cameras. The Grandview Aquarium is a zoo located inside a mall in Guangzhou, China. The zoo currently holds a whale shark, a group of Arctic foxes, a wolf, two polar-brown bear hybrids, six belugas and five walruses.
If nothing is done, these animals will never see the sun again. Instead they will live their lives within these blue walls while tourists bang on the glass in hopes the animals will do something that interests them. Sign this petition and demand these animals be brought to an accredited sanctuary where they can live out the rest of their days happily.
Dear Mr. Xuguang,
The Grandview Aquarium is a new exhibit that has opened up inside a mall in Guangzhou, China. The zoo which is run by your company holds all its animals in barren rooms painted a bright, artificial blue. The animals, including but not limited to belugas, bears, walruses and foxes, have little to no enrichment in their rooms and are forced to listen to the bangs on the glass from the visitors.
These animals belong in a sanctuary where they can live their lives in a natural environment among friends. If these animals continue living in this zoo, they will never see sunlight again. Animals are not objects and should not be used for profit. They are living, breathing beings who form attachments and have feelings.
Please consider moving these animals to an accredited sanctuary. They deserve a happy life among friends.
[Your Name Here]
