Event Description

WORLDWIDE SIMULTANEOUS DEMONSTRATIONS ABOUT DOLPHINS AND WHALES IN CAPTIVITY
The Time Has Come to Empty the Tanks - Over 50 events will take place in 20 countries.
The world is pushing back on the acceptability of keeping marine mammals in captivity, and standing together on May 24, 2014, in a worldwide event called Empty the Tanks. This is the 2nd Annual event for Empty the Tanks Worldwide. Both a demonstration of the support for dolphin and whale freedom and an opportunity for increased public awareness and education since the worldwide release of the widely-acclaimed documentary film, Blackfish.

Lots of information about whales and dolphins in general as well as the issue of captivity that has spiraled in the media since the release of the film Blackfish last year.

This will really be a great educational opportunity for people.
