On the 6th of June 2015 gatherings will be held all over the world in opposition to the cetacean captive industry. South Africa is joining this growing movement and will be holding a gathering in Durban, KwaZulu Natal, where we hope to bring together as many people as possible to send a strong, unified message to the captive industry. If you are against the kidnapping, starvation, physical and psychological torture of cetaceans, stand with us and make your voice heard. Empty the Tanks 2015 coincides with the Paddle Out for Sharks event (June 7th) and World Oceans Day (June 8th), so join us for a weekend of awareness creation for our oceans!
Empty the Tanks is an annual worldwide protest and public awareness campaign against the cetacean captivity industry. Empty the Tanks is not a radical movement demanding the release of all captive marine mammals into the wild. Some of these animals might be great candidates for release, but those that are not should be retired into sea pens, where they can enjoy the rest of their days in natural seawater, feeling the waves of the ocean around them. They should not be worked until their last breath is taken and then thrown out like trash and replaced.
