Thanks for caring about whales and dolphins – I want to let you know what you’re helping us achieve…
When you asked cruise company, Carnival to stop exploiting dolphins, you joined a movement! We have a clear goal: to stop all UK holiday companies supporting captive whale and dolphin ‚attractions‘. We’ve already had success.
Whales and dolphins should not be imprisoned to amuse humans and I’m glad we have your support , because public pressure changes things.
A friend of ours made the video above to explain the horror of orca captivity, and I thought you’d find it interesting. If you do, please share it with your friends to get the message out – keeping whales and dolphins in tanks is cruel and must stop.
We are making progress…
- We’re achieving great things together. In fact, since the video was made, SeaWorld bowed to public pressure and agreed to stop breeding orcas.
- Days after we launched our campaign asking Richard Branson to end Virgin Holidays‘ support for places like SeaWorld, he announced that they would no longer support ‚attractions‘ that take whales and dolphins from the wild. Virgin has also promised not to add any new dolphin theme parks to its books.
- We’re advising Thomas Cook as they review the whale and dolphin ‚attractions‘ they promote, and we’re talking With TripAdvisor as they consider the part they play in promoting these cruel circuses.
but we’ve a long way to go…
Companies like Virgin and Thomas Cook are willing to listen to you and have made steps in the right direction – we are pleased to help them do the right thing. Other companies are stuck in the dark ages. We hoped British Airways would listen to their customers, but they’ve shown nothing but contempt for your concerns. Let’s hope Carnival is more forward thinking and will help save dolphins from a life of misery.
and we’re going to need your help
I’ll keep you up-to-date and let you know how you can help. In the meantime, why not follow us on social media for the latest news:
Thank you for your brilliant support . Together we are strong. Together we will open people’s eyes to the cruelty of whale and dolphin captivity and change things for the better.
