On May 11, say NO to the dolphin show and join thousands of activists across the world during the 7th annual Empty the Tanks worldwide event.

What better way to create positive change than through education? Empty the Tanks does just that – by educating about the horrific realities of dolphin captivity, potential visitors to marine parks and aquariums will be able to make informed decisions about whether to support institutions that use dolphins for entertainment.

It’s all about building awareness, and sparking a positive and productive dialogue about the unethical practice of keeping dolphins captive. Empty the Tanks also aims to bring awareness to the health of the oceans – without which, cetaceans and other marine life will be unable to thrive.

Rachel Carbary, Founder of Empty the Tanks Worldwide“Marine entertainment parks have no place in our world anymore. Dolphins and other whales are incredibly social, and highly intelligent emotional beings. They are being exploited all over the world in entertainment parks and swim-with dolphin attractions. It is unethical and time to bring an end to the captivity industry.” ~ Rachel Carbary, Founder of Empty the Tanks Worldwide

Please join us on May 11 and together, let’s put a permanent end to dolphin captivity!

Standing together to call out cruelty against dolphins
Today marked the 7th annual Empty the Tanks Day. It's a global day of action calling on marine parks to end dolphin and whale captivity. 

Our team stood alongside more than sixty protesters right outside Sea World on the Gold Coast, calling on them to STOP breeding dolphins into artificial pools for entertainment.
The day was a huge success. The protest was covered by two major newspapers in Queensland. 

Dedicated activists from around Australia gathered outside the marine park. We chatted to people from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. 

It’s clear community attitudes are changing, and Sea World needs to get with the times.

Sea World is the last remaining marine park in Australia with an active dolphin breeding program. If we keep up the pressure, we can end this cruel practice for good.
Today we joined forces with like-minded individuals to tell Sea World enough is enough.

President Trump wants to expand offshore drilling to nearly all U.S. waters, including your coast.

For years, Wavemakers like you have stood with Oceana to fight dirty and dangerous offshore drilling and seismic airgun blasting. And now, it seems our longstanding opposition is starting to delay these risky activities. Just last month, U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Bernhardt said to The Wall Street Journal that the administration’s offshore drilling plan is “going to take a while.”
This is encouraging, but until the plan is final, our oceans and the coastal communities that depend on them are still in danger of future offshore development.
We’re rallying on our beaches and joining hands against offshore drilling. Will you stand with us this year?

Hands Across the Sand is an international day of action bringing coastal residents, business owners and beachgoers from across the political spectrum together. Join us to unite against dirty and dangerous offshore drilling and seismic airgun blasting and #ProtectOurCoast.

WHAT: Hands Across the Sand
WHO: You, Oceana and our many allies working to protect our oceans
DATE: Saturday, May 18
LOCATION: Your local beach!

The oceans need your voice. Will you join us on May 18? >>

We’ve fought this battle before - and won. Communities around the globe and across America will join again to celebrate how far we’ve come and to demand that the Trump administration listens to us. We know that our oceans are not safe until expanded drilling is off the table. We must keep up the fight to prevent seismic airgun blasting from harming  marine wildlife. We will never stop fighting to protect our coast, and we hope you’re with us.
