The Problem

To raise awareness of the plight of captive cetaceans in marine parks around the globe, and the mental, physical and emotional distress whales and dolphins endure in captivity. Our wish is to help end the use of captive sentient cetaceans for human entertainment purposes.

Our Plan

We will educate various audiences regarding the serious issues captive cetaceans face in marine parks and swim-with-dolphin programs through an educational booth at the Colorado Environmental Film Festival. Students will craft and sell marine-themed contributions to fundraise for the Whale Sanctuary Project, which will offer the world's first model seaside sanctuary for cold-water orcas, belugas and dolphins released from captivity.
