There is No Beauty in Stolen Freedom
No hay Belleza en la Libertad Robada
Empty the Tanks is committed to exposing the cruelty of dolphin captivity in Mexico.
For more than 30 years the captivity industry in Mexico has deceived us with their false claims and marketing. During these years they have ignored the scientific facts about the animals they are exploiting. It is time they acknowledge the complexities, emotions and intelligence of all cetaceans.
The Mexican tourism industry expects nearly 45 million people to visit the country in 2019. Mexico is the 8th most visited country in the world. With tourism numbers continuing to grow each year, it is also important to increase efforts to educate tourists about dolphin captivity throughout the country.
Empty the Tanks has a team of volunteers in place in Mexico to help us strengthen these efforts. These volunteers are working to educate tourists and locals about the truth behind these swim with dolphin businesses. They are also working with local hotels, dive shops, and other ecotourism businesses to help create a dolphin free community.
