Empty the Tanks is campaign of Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project, a 501(c)(3) organization
The Empty the Tanks Mission:
Using education and awareness to end cetacean captivity and promote ocean conservation worldwide.
Our vision is a world without cetacean captivity and a world with healthy oceans and marine life.
We aim to inspire people of all ages to understand how their individual choices impact the world around them. Empty the Tanks is not a radical movement demanding the release of all captive marine mammals into the wild. Some of these animals might be great candidates for release, but those that are not should be retired into sea sanctuaries, where they can enjoy the rest of their days in natural seawater, feeling the waves of the ocean around them. They should not be worked until their last breath is taken and then thrown out like trash and replaced.
End Captivity, Protect the Oceans
