Empty the Tanks’s Ally for Dolphins
Certification Program launches in Mexico!
There are over 40 dolphinariums exploiting dolphins throughout the country of Mexico. In addition to this, there are countless other businesses helping to promote the outdated captivity industry. In response to that, Empty the Tanks has created a one of kind certification program called Ally for Dolphins.
Ally for Dolphins is a certification program that allows businesses to show their customers that they consider the welfare of dolphins to be a priority. They are community leaders in the evolution of tourism.
We want to give tourists a symbol they can look for to let them know a business does not support the captivity of these intelligent and over exploited marine mammals.
Certified businesses can become an Ally for Dolphins and allow their company to stand out as a place of ethical tourism. As a standard rule, their business does not promote dolphin captivity in any capacity, and must also prove to have their own ethical business practices.
We are very excited to launch this program in Mexico and will consider expanding it to other areas in the future. If you own or operate a business in Mexico and would like to apply to be an Ally for Dolphins, please send an email to Rachel@emptythetanks.org.
