This is the 2nd annual Empty the Tanks protest. 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 May 24th, protests and educational events will be 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 May 24th 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.

The Miami SeaQuarium protest will be from 12-2pm on May 24, 2014. We're going to be educating the public and making some noise for Lolita who has been confined to her tiny tank for the past 43 years. Miami SeaQuarium, FL
