Pamela Anderson’s biggest birthday wish is to free Corky the orca

Canadian-turned-American citizen, actor and famous beauty Pamela Anderson is a humanitarian, activist and fighter for endangered species on the planet.

And Pamela has just one birthday wish: freedom for Corky, the captured orca.

The mother of two sons’ birthday is today, and she is selflessly asking her fan base to look into and support her wishes to free Corky, an orca caught off her native British Columbia decades ago.

The orca was captured five decades ago, and the killer whale lives in a cramped, chemically treated concrete tank at SeaWorld. Anderson isn’t having it and wants her 52nd birthday to draw attention to the whale’s horrific plight.

In her latest PETA campaign, Pamela is photographed inside a cramped tub to illustrate the situation that Corky and other captive orcas are suffering, asking, “Could You Live in a Bathtub for Decades?”

Anderson is no stranger to causes for PETA and has worked diligently to call attention to Denmark’s Faroe Islands “Grind” where dolphins and other sea life are culled mercilessly.

Anderson not only shares her age but also notes that Corky was captured near her hometown in the Canadian province of British Columbia that lies next to the Pacific ocean.

“Please don’t let her die in a tank that, to her, is comparable to the size of a bathtub,” Anderson writes in a letter to new SeaWorld CEO Gustavo Antorcha.

To illustrate her point, she appears in a new PETA ad, posing in a tub in her birthday suit beneath the words “Could You Live in a Bathtub for Decades?” You can view the ad here.

“Corky’s brother and sister are still alive and flourishing in the wild,” Anderson wrote in her published letter, “and a Canadian scientist who has been studying her family wants to bring her home. It’s within your power to release this long-suffering orca to a seaside sanctuary in a protected bay of her home waters.” The orca was used in a now-illegal breeding program in which all seven of her offspring died within weeks.

The pressure is on for SeaWorld to create sea sanctuaries.

The National Aquarium is retiring the dolphins, beluga whales are being moved from a Chinese marine park to a sanctuary in Iceland, and the Canadian Parliament just voted to ban dolphin and whale captivity outright according to PETA.

The conditions at SeaWorld cause significant harm to the larger sea animals. The orcas, highly intelligent and strongly pod/family oriented swim in circles inside shallow tanks filled with chemically treated water. The intense UVA and UVB rays in relentless sun exposure can cause them to develop skin and eye diseases, according to PETA.

PETA and Pam ask people to write SeaWorld and let them know your feelings about Corky here:

Pamela Anderson steps out in Athens

She’s a sex symbol who has graced the pages of countless magazines and now dedicates her life to campaigning for the environment and human rights.

And Pamela Anderson, 51, proved she’s still as glamorous as ever when she stepped out in Athens, Greece on Monday.

The blonde bombshell wowed in a tight black bardot style dress that highlighted her famous curves.

The sides of the black dress cinched in with the help of the lace up detail that was complete with silver eyelets.

Adding a touch of Gothic glamour to her ensemble, the model accessorised with a beaded choker that dangled above her decolletage and wore lace sock boots on her feet.

Her blonde mane was coiffed into a voluminous style of loose curls that tumbled past her shoulders.

As part of her activist campaigning, Pamela has set up The Pamela Anderson Foundation.

On Sunday, the beauty sent an open letter to Russian President Vladamir Putin in hope of him setting free 11 orcas and 87 beluga whales currently in captivity near Nakhodka, Russia.

She shared the letter on her blog on the foundations website for her fans and supporters to see.

The Playboy star penned: ‘I want to thank the Government of the Russian Federation for taking important steps to stop the international sale of these whales.

‘I understand that the Russian Government has taken initial steps toward the release of these magnificent creatures back into the wild, in their home waters of the Russian Far East. I am very grateful for this news.

‘I understand that a final decision has not yet been made to release the orcas and belugas back into the wild, and I respectfully ask that you resolve this by ordering their release.’

She continued: ‘We hope that your government will work together with Russian ecologists and international specialists to develop a professional plan to return these orca and beluga whales to the wild.’

‘As you know, people around the world have become increasingly concerned about marine biodiversity, and about the health and vitality of whales in particular.

‘News about the “whale jail” near Nakhodka, the icy conditions, and the suffering of the orca and beluga whales is causing international concern.’

‘The Russian Government clearly shown its leadership by stopping the international sale of these orcas and belugas. By releasing these animals back into the wild, Russia can further demonstrate its leadership, which will be welcomed around the world.’

She finished the offering by typing: ‘With respect, Pamela Anderson.’

The stunner recently caused waves on social media by claiming the world had lost ‘good men’ to ‘porn and PlayStation’ in a Twitter thread.

She said: ‘Porn and PlayStation; we’ve lost many good men to this. GONE. No return. Talk to our children. As young adults we can make our own choices.

‘It’s a slippery slope. I (pray) kids can be brave. Rebel against it all. Nightmare.’

She also recently admitted that she is missing her two children Brandon, 22, and Dylan, 21, whom she raises with her first ex-husband Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, 56.

The mother-of-two, who moved away from the sunny shores of Malibu, enthused she couldn’t wait for her children to come and visit her in France.

She told Silvia Toffanin on Italy’s Canale 5 TV show Verissimo: ‘I miss my children. You know I live in France now and they have very busy lives. I can’t wait for the next time they’ll come visit me.’

Pamela Anderson gets behind bars in Paris protest against farm animal abuse

Actress Pamela Anderson joined animal rights campaigners in Paris yesterday, posing inside a cage to protest the caging of animals in European farming.

The former Baywatch star was backing a campaign by Compassion in World Farming to get a million signatures in seven EU countries in support of their bid to end the practice.

“I don’t think any animal belongs in a cage for entertainment or for what we wear or what we eat,” she told reporters.

“All of our choices are important and we have to be more conscious of our decisions,” she added.

“Animal welfare has come a long way, but we have a long way to go.”

The petition is part of the European Citizens’ Initiative, which means that if they can raise a million signatures within a year the European Commission will have to consider the issue.

The organizers say they have the support of 140 organizations, including in France the Brigitte Bardot Foundation and PETA.

Anderson is currently taking part in the French edition of the television programme Dancing with the Stars.
