Marineland school trip cancelled after hearing from Hamilton mom

Huge shout out to Jennifer for making this happen, and a thank you to the principal and school for listening too! #EndCaptivity 

One of our most popular social media campaigns - our 2nd annual Global Awareness Week begins this Saturday. Last year we were flooded with photos from all over the world - this year we want more! Next week send us a photo with you holding a sign with the text - “Shut Down Marineland” ” Shut Down Ripley’s Aquarium” “End Captivity” and/or “Empty the Tanks”. This year we are also partnering with Toronto Aquarium Resistance Alliance (TARA) so show them some love as well!

This is Duke, and when I first came here in 1991, it was really Duke that brought me here. Some undercover footage that Cara Sands shot inside the warehouse of Duke and all of the others.

You can see if you look closely, his face is all scarred up, you can see what they call rake marks, which is from biting and fighting. His eyes are damaged, his jaw is damaged. And we actually found a place in the Caicos Islands to rehabilitate Duke, and it wouldn’t have cost John Holer (owner of Marineland) anything. And he wouldn’t do it, he let Duke die here.
