Save Marineland Animals

Goal ThermometerThe animals residing at a Canadian marine-park are suffering immensely. In this tell-all, an ex-trainer, Phil Demers, describes the horrors that happen behind closed doors. Beluga whales are being held in cramped tanks, with very little space to move. Many have scrapes and rake marks from fighting and being pushed against the edges of the tanks. Kiska, the parks only killer whale (featured in this video), lives by herself, floating on the surface of her pool, bored and depressed. The parks seals and sea lions have damaged eyes from poor water quality and over-chlorination. Deer are often chased and harassed by children in the hot summer months with no-where safe to hide. The bears are over-populated and obese due to over-feeding of sugary cereal visitors can throw into their enclosures. It is also reported that the the walruses that reside at the park are in dire need of better living conditions, forced to live in small cages with skin problems too.

Many locals to the area refuse to visit the park because they are aware of the living conditions of the animals. Unfortunately tourists who visit Niagara falls are still unaware of the nightmare that these animals face every day of their lives. This is why we need your help today; we want to be able to run a full-scale ad on local buses in the Niagara falls region. We are an all-volunteer nonprofit this means that none of our board members are paid or compensated for their work. 100% of your donation will go directly towards this specific campaign. Tax-receipts are available upon request as well as because we are registered 501(c)(3) charity in the United States. We cannot continue our crucial work without generous donors like you.

Contribute and help us secure the funds to be able to put our ad on transit buses in Canada.

Alex Lewis-Dorer

Alex Lewis-Dorer is a 27 year old activist. Having watched The Cove during its initial release and learning about the capture practices and the dangers of captivity, she felt compelled to stand up and voice her concerns to others. Since then she has dedicated her time and energy to working towards educating others about ocean conversation. In 2012 Alex joined forces with Wendy Brunot to have a lone killer whale named Shouka, moved to an alternate marine park to be with other orcas. Following the news of a planned Beluga Whale import, Alex hosted a protest in Atlanta In July 2012 together with Free the Atlanta 11 and GARP which attracted significant attention to the issues behind such an initiative. Alex has also played a large part in being a strong voice against Marineland, Canada, holding a demo at the facility in May 2014 in honor of Kiska, Canada’s last captive whale. She has dedicated much of her time to bringing attention to Marineland’s suffering animals. She also voices her concerns over many other captive marine faculties and lends her hand on campaigns regarding this issue. Alex’s love is not limited to cetaceans – she sees the beauty in all marine life. She is excited to be part of the movement that will end captivity for all marine mammals. Alex is also a proud team member for Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project.
