Following news that House of Blues Entertainment President Ronald Bension has joined SeaWorld’s board of directors, iconic Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee — a longtime SeaWorld foe — sent a letter on PETA's behalf this week asking Bension to urge the company to follow the National Aquarium’s lead and build coastal sanctuaries for the animals currently held captive at its theme parks.

“I’m glad that SeaWorld has stopped jacking off orcas since my appeal, which came before the release of Blackfish. But for the 29 orcas and countless other animals who are still being kept in tiny tanks, it’s the same ol’ situation,” writes Lee. “Please, save the orcas and your reputation by urging SeaWorld to build sanctuaries where these animals could feel ocean currents, hear wild pods, and still be cared for as long as they need.”

PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment,” and Tommy Lee’s full letter on PETA’s behalf is available here.
