Sea Shepherd Conservation Society – Sea Shepherd Debuts Powerful Online Images to Combat Dolphin and Whale Captivity

From a splash of water to a smash of glass, three pictures force people to think twice before buying tickets to marine parks.

SharkySea Shepherd Conservation Society launched a series of images today illustrating the tragic fates met by real-life captive cetaceans.

The images come just as the holiday season begins and families are making choices about how to spend their money on entertainment. The pictures are being published to educate and deter travelers around the world from buying tickets to marine shows, swim-with-dolphin programs and other similar animal encounter experiences.

The photos, featuring a dolphin, beluga and orca, respectively, show each animal breaking the water with their backs. Drops splash around them as they land from an aerial trick. Upon closer look, the viewer will see the drops of water are, in fact, broken glass. Each visual is accompanied by text that tells the true story of the mammal in the poster.

It is heartbreaking that such sentient beings are trapped and imprisoned for human entertainment and profit.
