After more than a year of lockdowns, we know what it feels like to have our world shrink and our freedom taken away. But whales and dolphins are still captured from the wild, kept in tanks that are far too small for their needs, and made to perform for our entertainment.
Thanks to your support we have already persuaded Virgin Holidays, British Airways, TripAdvisor and others to stop supporting this cruelty.
Now we need your help to persuade TUI to join them, so we’re calling on the world’s largest tour operator to help end lockdown for captive whales and dolphins.
Please share the petition with everyone you know, on social media or by email. If you’ve already shared, please share again!
Thank you for your continued support – we’re able to fight and win on behalf of whales and dolphins because of you.

Morgan’s daughter dies
We were heartbroken to hear that little orca Ula (pictured) had died at Loro Parque in Tenerife just weeks before her third birthday. How many more of these tragedies will it take before people accept that captivity is wrong and isn’t working?
Little White and Little Grey are the residents of the first sanctuary for captive whales. Covid has caused delays but preparations continue for their release to the bay. With 3,600 whales and dolphins held in tanks, sanctuaries are vital.

Cruel whale tests ended
We were relieved that the hearing experiments in Norway ended with no whales tested. But we are outraged that it was ever allowed. The researchers plan to try again next year and, with your support, we will oppose them all the way.
Whaling an ugly stain
The Olympics are over and we’re looking forward to the Paralympics next week. But while Japan’s government says it wants to hold the greenest games ever, it is still sanctioning the slaughter of our climate allies – whales.
