Empty the Tanks Worldwide

July 27, 2013 – July 28, 2013 all-day

This is an annual worldwide protest called Empty the Tanks. This is a day for everyone around the world to stand up against marine mammal captivity. The abuse and exploitation of these sentient beings has no place in the 21st century.

On a single day there will be protests held all over world in front of marine mammal parks and aquariums. If the park is exploiting marine mammals for entertainment and profit then we want people out front creating noise and awareness. The only way to close their doors for good is to get the general public to stop buying tickets. We need your voice, your posters, and your dedication to seeing an end to the captivity industry.

Please join us on July 27, 2013 at your local marine park or aquarium. Here is the list of protest locations so far. If you do not see your city or local marine park on the list please contact me about creating your own Empty the Tank protest.
