Our Anti-Captivity SeaWorld Ad in San Diego  

busad2016You may remember www.finsandfluke.org anti captivity campaign last summer that ran on a Niagara Falls Ontario Transit Bus. While it was supposed to run most of the summer it was removed after only after a few short weeks. Karl Dren, City Director of Transportation Services, deemed the ad “political advertising”. The press received on it brought Marineland Canada back into the spotlight. After it was suggested in the Niagara Falls Review, Karl Dren, stated there was no pressure from Marineland to remove it.

A year later we have found a company in San Diego that will support our anti captivity message. We once again ask for the support of our donors in order to educate people on captivity. Please consider donating today!pedicab ad

Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $1000. We intend to use the money towards our ad campaign on pedicabs. These cabs travel near and around SeaWorld San Diego – educating the public about the horrors of captivity.

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.
