Release Tigers Imprisoned for 12 Years With Almost No Sunlight

Target: Tilman J. Fertitta, CEO of Landry’s Inc., owner of Downtown Aquarium, Houston, Texas

Goal: Release the four white tigers stuck inside the Downtown Aquarium to an accredited sanctuary.

For 12 years, four white tigers, Nero, Marina, Coral and Reef, have been stuck inside the Downtown Aquarium in Houston. Reportedly, the only sunlight they experience is from glares coming through the small windows of their dreary enclosure. It is time these animals experience a more natural lifestyle.

The four tigers were bred in captivity and have lived almost their entire lives inside the Downtown Aquarium. They have never experienced rolling around in grass and mud, sunbathing, or playing in the rain. Instead they are either confined in a concrete exhibit while visitors gawk at them through the glass, or they are brought to a holding cell. This lifestyle is terribly detrimental to their physical and mental well being.

Sign this petition and demand the Downtown Aquarium release these tigers to an accredited sanctuary. They have been denied everything natural to them for much too long. It is time they live the life they deserve.


Dear Mr. Fertitta

For 12 years, four tigers, Nero, Marina, Coral and Reef, have been stuck inside the Downtown Aquarium and denied everything natural to them. Their current living conditions are extremely detrimental to their mental and physical well being. It is time they are moved to a sanctuary where they can live the lives they were meant to live.

These four tigers have never experienced rolling around in grass, playing in a mud pit or sunbathing. Instead, they live every day in a concrete enclosure while humans gawk at them through thick glass.

Please consider retiring these four beautiful animals and relocating them to an accredited sanctuary. The Animal Legal Defense Fund has offered to do just this at no cost to you. This is an amazing offer for you and the animals. I urge you to think about what is best for these tigers.

    This is so incredibly cruel I can not fathom it. I expect this (unfortunately) from places like China but not the USA.
    Please release these poor animals to a sanctuary

    Don’t you have enough $ and entertainment Mr Jackhole Fertitta. U aren’t any better than these road side people that exploit animals. I don’t care how well fed and taken care of they are, they should not done this way living like that. You Sir need some education on wild animals. Better yet you should be put in the cage with them and see how long u last. EVERYBODY should flood ur FB page and your establishments and your house picketing! This certainly changed my opinion about you and I will NEVER EAT or visit anything that you own ever again. By the way it’s not that good anyway !
