Abnormal behaviors in dolphins, orcas, belugas and other cetaceans in captivity have been documented countless times- from extreme cases of jumping out of their tanks, to banging their heads against walls or gates, to floating lethargically for extended periods of time. These are just a few of many reasons why they do not belong in aquariums and marine parks. We strive to expose the issues these animals face in the captive trade, and to advocate for an end to this exploitation.

It’s not education, and it’s not conservation. It’s exploitation in the name of profit.
Please don’t buy a ticket to ANY facility that has dolphins and whales in tanks for entertainment. #emptythetanks

YOU can help captive orcas, beluga whales, pilot whales, and false killer whales by text to tweeting members of congress!!

The SWIMS Act would end the future capture and breeding of these whale species by amending both the US Marine Mammal Protection Act and Animal Welfare Act to prohibit the taking, importation, exportation, and breeding of these whales.

Don’t use Twitter? No worries! Politely ask @repdwightevans, @repgracenapolitano, @repdonaldpaynejr, @reppettersen, @repgabevasquez, @repshrithanedar, @emilia_sykes to lend their support and consider cosponsoring the SWIMS Act.

Happy Endangered Species Day!

Did you know 99% of species protected under the Endangered Species Act have been saved from extinction? 

Today is a day to celebrate this importance piece of legislation while continuing to highlight and advocate for species that need our help. One of the most threatened species in the ocean are sharks.

According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), 121 shark species are endangered, 90 are critically endangered, and 180 are vulnerable. 

To celebrate #endangeredspeciesday join over 10,000 activists by telling United Airlines to officially prohibit the transport of shark fins in their planes’ cargo, further restricting the trade that’s pushing numerous shark species towards extinction.

Animal Agriculture doesn’t just devastate the rainforests, it also hurts our oceans. How? Here are 3 ways that animal agriculture hurts our ocean:

1. Water Pollution: Runoff of manure, fertilizers, and pesticides from livestock operations pollute nearby water bodies, including rivers, streams, and coastal areas, leading to nutrient pollution, algal blooms, and oxygen depletion, which can harm marine life.

2. Climate Change: Animal agriculture is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, primarily methane and nitrous oxide, which contributes to climate change. Climate change impacts sea level rise, ocean acidification, changes in ocean currents and temperatures, and disruptions to marine ecosystems and biodiversity.

3. Dead Zones: Nutrient runoff from animal agriculture can contribute to the formation of dead zones in oceans and coastal areas. Excess nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, fuel algal blooms, which deplete oxygen levels in the water when the algae die and decompose. Dead zones can lead to fish kills, loss of biodiversity, and degradation of marine habitats. 📸 @plantbasedtreaty
