It’s getting to be that time of year again! Join the Hawaii locations of the Empty The Tanks Worldwide Annual Protest! We’ll start outside Sea Life Park at 9:30 AM! We’re also looking for someone to help us organize a protest on the Big Island at Dolphin Quest’s facility at Hilton Waikoloa.
Bring your friends, kids, well-behaved pups! We’re stronger in numbers!
Some general info about the Empty The Tanks Worldwide Protest:
Marine entertainment parks have no place in our world anymore. These are incredibly social, intelligent beings that are being exploited to make money. It is animal slavery, and it needs to be brought to the general public’s attention.
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 pens, 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.
This is a campaign to educate the general public about what captivity means to cetaceans. These annual events will allow activists to reach the public all over the world in a positive and productive way.
