Yesterday, May 13th 2017, we have joined the international movement of Empty the Tanks Worlwide to calmly show our approach against whale and dolphin captivity.
Public awareness is raising, and a change in public attitude towards captive dolphins and whales is certainly happening. This is becoming visible every day all over the world. If we look back we have recently seen several dolphinariums closing, like Poland 2015, Finland 2016 or Barcelona 2016 among others. Several policies and regulations have been taken to fight against captivity: acrobatic performances have been banned in several countries all over the world, 20 european tour opperators have stopped the support of dolphins shows, new laws ban in France whale and dolphin breeding in captivity.
But shows continue on.. and it is still a long way to go.
And finally Sail & Whale begins!! We would like to thank all the “ocean minded people” we recently met, who care about the ocean and its conservation, who are not afraid to “bring awareness into action” and who find a way to overcome science challenges “just with their will”. They all have definitely make this project born with energy and illusion.
Just say that we are happy to receive suggestions: every single one will be welcome!
We are also totally available to provide any kind of information.
And finally, if you want to collaborate, join us!
