Empty the Tanks Event: Advocate From Home
We’re inviting you to join us on May 8 for the 9th Annual Empty the Tanks Worldwide Event! This year, our global event will once again be held online due to Covid concerns. While most public events have been cancelled, there are some event organizers that have decided to do a live, in person event where all Covid safety protocols and measures will be followed. No matter where you live, you can still spend the day advocating on behalf of captive cetaceans.
People around the world are ready to move beyond this pandemic and get back into the wilderness of their own lives. Guess what? Captive dolphins feel the same way. So this year our message is simple – They are tired of captivity too. We are encouraging everyone to use May 8 as a day of advocating from home. Get out your posters, your costumes, and download and print out one of our new yard signs and let the world know that dolphins and whales are tired of captivity too.
You can go simple, or you go BIG. You can take pictures or make a short video in order to participate. Just use this day to advocate for the dolphins and whales that will still be trapped in captivity even after this pandemic ends.
On May 8th, we want you to post your pictures and videos to social media using the hashtag, #EmptyTheTanks. Empty the Tanks and Dolphin Project will share photos from around the world to help remind everyone that we are still in this fight together!
To make things even more fun, the three most creative submissions will receive a prize pack from Empty the Tanks. We can’t wait to see what you come up with for this year’s virtual Empty the Tanks Worldwide event on May 8, 2021.
