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!

We know that you believe this message! #ThrowbackThursday goes back to Operation Splashback, and looks to the future of #OP2NDChance for all the animals of Marineland.

Our Big New Years Announcement!

We say goodbye to Operation Shut it Down (OPSID) and hello Operation Second Chance (OP2NDChance) - a year dedicated to proving that captive animals both deserve and can have a second chance at life.

Alongside this, we announce opening day (May 17) as a “March on Marineland” - our first ever mass march on the captive animal park. It’s time to take to the streets of Niagara Falls to demand that second chance before it is too late.

Please Reblog, RSVP HERE and make sure you have that date of the 17th on your calendar. Cover photo can also be pulled from our facebook event to use on your own.

See you all in May!

It’s that time of the week again- Social Media Tuesday! Give this image a share and check out our new video PSA, “90 Seconds For Kiska”, to help raise awareness about Kiska’s life at Marineland.

If you missed out on calling Federal Ocean and Fisheries Minister Gail Shea today - you can always follow up tomorrow! We are looking to build a small call in army that keeps the pressure on!

Have you contacted Federal Ocean and Fisheries Minister Gail Shea yet today? Please do! She is a decision maker and can stop the flow of wild caught marine mammals into parks like Marineland Canada. Please follow through and ask her to close the wild capture loophole once and for all!

90 Seconds For Kiska

For those still up - in advance of our call in tomorrow we made a new video PSA featuring Kiska. Kiska is the sole survivor of the captive orca program at Marineland Canada - and the last remaining orca in captivity in Canada. 

In the time it would take you to send an email, fax, or call to Federal Ocean and Fishers Minister Gail Shea she will have lapped her tank. 

Please join us and fight for her release to a sea and for an end to captivity in Canada. Share this video widely - Marineland will no doubt try everything they can to get it pulled down.
