Hey people I know this late but ever since school started I haven’t really had much time on my hands. Grade 5 is a lot of work!!
Anyways, on Monday I was very happy to see so many friendly faces at the Marineland protest! I was even more proud when we sent 3 families home!
It was heartbreaking though to come back from seeing Orcas in the wild to knowing that there was another Orca sad and trapped in a tank.
I also saw Phil Demers (activist against Marineland) there. He was very kind and we talked about how captivity is wrong and about Zeus the walrus. If you have not seen the video of Zeus you should defiantly go check it out. Unfortunately he is still at Marineland and is in horrible shape. A walrus is not supposed to look the way he does in the video! It breaks my heart even to watch and I could not watch till the end. I will put the link at the bottom.
There was also Mike Garrett at the Marineland protest. He organized the whole thing…..He did a very good job. He needs all the support he can get. He makes sure that the protests are family friendly and appropriate for kids like me.
Also, I will share with you a video of highlights of the demonstration from that day. Phil, Mike and I all have an important message in it for you and we even have a clip in it of how we changed minds and people decided not to go in so please watch! (If you watch until the end, that’s where I come in! 🙂 )
Moving on, they were also selling wrist bands there… I got 2, one that says Save Kiska and Save Smooshi and another that says I love dolphins, stop the slaughter Taiji. All round it was another great demonstration and I am proud to have attended again! #emptythetanks
See ya soon guys….. stay posted!!! 🙂
