Las Vegas Strip

Tomorrow (9/22) evening from 6-8 pm is a protest at The Mirage Hotel & Casino on the #LasVegasStrip to raise awareness about the #dolphins who’ve been imprisoned since the late eighties. 13 dolphins have died since they were brought to the facility. 🐬**Parking at the Treasure Island and walking to the protest on the public sidewalk in front of the Mirage’s dolphin statues is suggested** The aquarium is in a breeding program with #SeaWorld which has led to the recent birth of a baby in captivity. There is an awesome group that has been advocating for the dolphins for years @mojavedolphins, but this particular protest is organized by a local activist Deborah Toro Osh (on Facebook) and @peggy_oki, longtime #vegan marine mammal advocate.
🐬
The dolphins have been documented having zoochosis (when animals in captivity slowly lose their minds and can be seen self-harming or anxiously chewing parts of their habitats) dolphin pox, sunburn as they have no shade in the areas they are exposed to (the hotel pools), a violation of the AWA act for cetaceans, and are forced to paint pictures and do tricks for guests who pay the right price.
If you can, please come and represent the animals, signs will be provided!

“Why” … .
While visiting the Los Angeles Zoo, I overheard a woman encouraging her young daughter to say “hello” to the Gorillas. “You never know, someday they might say “hello” back.” .
This exchange broke my heart a little, because I knew that if I, as a Western Lowland Gorilla, had an opportunity to communicate with a human, the word “hello” would not be considered. Rather, my word of choice would be “why.”
.
“Why” is it that I’ve spent my entire life parading before you?
.
“Why” is it necessary for me to spend my entire life in this cage in order to guarantee the persistence of my kind?
.
“Why” are you methodically destroying my home?
.
“Why” do you feel the need to hunt my people to extinction, though we have never wronged you?
.
“Why” is your greed-induced pursuit of comfort insatiable?
.
… “Why”

SeaWorld Orlando

Trua, Seaworld Orlando : 🇫🇷Né à Orlando le 23 novembre 2005. Il est le fils de Takara et de Taku. C’est une Orque très curieuse et joueuse, qui interagit volontiers avec les visiteurs. Il vit actuellement avec sa grand-mère Katina, son oncle Makaio, et sa tante Malia. Il est reconnaissable à ses grains de beauté et sa dorsale qui penche vers la gauche. En 2017, il pèsait 5.500 lbs et mesurait 18 ft. Trua est très proche de son oncle et de Kayla. En 2008, il avait été placé en majeur partie avec sa mère et son grand-père Tilikum avec qui il a développé des liens très fort. Pendant des années, il était le seul à faire les représentations avec Tilikum. 🇺🇸 Born in Orlando on 23 November 2005. He is the son of Takara and Taku. He is a very curious and playful Killer whale who interacts with visitors. He currently lives with his grandmother Katina, his uncle Makaio, and his aunt Malia. It is recognizable by its moles and his dorsal which leans to the left. In 2017, it weighed 5,500 lbs and measured 18 ft. Trua is very close to his uncle and Kayla. In 2008, he was placed mainly with his mother and his grandfather Tilikum with whom he developed very strong relationship. For years, he was the only one performing with Tilikum. #marineland #zookeeper #soigneuranimalier #blackfishlies #keepthetanksfull #orca #orque #killerwhale #dauphin #dolphin #seaworld #captivity #delphinarium #seaworldcares #captivity #oceanografic #bottlenosedolphin #tursiopstruncatus #loroparque #ourspolaire #polarbear #mymarineland #blackfish is bullshit ⚠️Don’t #emptythetanks ⚠️ #peta lies

Reposted from @dolphin_project (@get_regrann) - Sixteen years ago when Dolphin Project founder @RichardOBarry first stood on the shores of the Cove, we didn’t have the benefit of social media to shed an international spotlight on these atrocities. We do, now – by live streaming and documenting the brutal #dolphin hunts, #Japan can no longer hide their crimes against #dolphins and #whales
⁠🐳🐋🐬🐳🐋🐬🐳🐋🐬🐳🐋🐬🐳🐋
Thanks to your activism and sharing our images and live streams, much progress has been made. #Japanese activists have come back to Taiji, stepping up their fight from within. In many parts of the world, the #captivity of dolphins and other whales has been banned. Breeding bans have been enacted. Major tour operators have stopped selling tickets to attractions that keep dolphins in captivity. The tide is definitely turning – but only because of our combined opposition to such cruelty.

“Here's how your medicine testers are transported between cages, prior to torture and death in the lab, for not only your prescription drugs, but vitamin concoctions, etc. If you're unwell, in most cases there is a phalanx of solutions awaiting your good health if only you will make the time to put these guys ahead of your quick-fix. Vegan is a lifestyle, not just a diet, and if yours is all junk food, you're going to need to learn about nutrition in order to stay well & minimize this harm to lab animals.”

Elephant Freedom Project

Today we met this precious girl Kunari which means princess in singhalese. Beside her is her elephant whisperer who can communicate with her using up to nearly 30 words. She was saved from captivity and you can still see the marks on her legs from where she was chained up 😔 I didn’t know or consider before I came to Sri Lanka how badly these animals are treated for tourism. They should never be used for a ride, they have feelings and it’s a horrible experience for them. 💔 A new friend recommended @elephant_freedom so @immaniyoung and I have come to spend the night with this family who run the project, they give elephants the best lives they possibly can after saving them. Today we fed her and visited an Elephant dung factory where they use the waste to make products that can be sold. It’s sooo expensive to look after them. Tomorrow we are gonna bathe her 💙🐘 she’s 40+ years old! Fun fact: elephants only have 4 teeth 🦷

If you visit @srilanka I would definitely recommend visiting this place and researching the animal keepers you visit as you could be helping fund the mistreatment of these lovely animals 🐘🐘

@pawsark2000 and @oaklandzoo are conservation partners (read as PAWS receives grants and publicity from Oakland) and have been for years. Does that mean either of these organizations has compromised morals? Does it mean the “politics of addition” (termed by Dan Ashe - President of AZA) is allowing for more transparency and, therefore, improvements in welfare across ALL TYPES of facilities to be made?
I would like to believe that coming together on matters we (animal liberationists and zoo activists) agree on (improving welfare standards, fighting wildlife trafficking) allows for us to build a bond and truly focus on SAVING SPECIES. And I think you can see from PAWS’ verbiage (“rescued” from pet trade vs “retired” from AZA zoos) has at least changed to be ever so slightly less vilifying of *some* zoos/aquaria. However, the overall sentiment of PAWS is blatantly anti-zoo. They even CONTINUE to rally behind #freebilly campaigns (LA Zoo) and “saving” Happy the elephant (Bronx Zoo) - both AZA-accredited facilities.. Oakland Zoo also houses elephants - what are PAWS views on this?
Are zoos (such as Oakland) simply “playing ball” in the hopes of changing these ARA organizations minds on SSPs and the like? Or, are they simply “giving in” to the idea that ARA PR is soooo far ahead of any possible damage control that moving towards more “animal rights” ideals is the only way to survive in 20-woke-teen🙄
I feel like we as activists know VERY LITTLE about these partnerships (you would not BELIEVE the amount of digging I had to do on the PAWS website as it seems they don’t love admitting such partnerships) and I for one am interested to hear all of your thoughts so please comment below if you have *educated* opinions - and you know I love a cited source if anyone has more info🥰

Cecil was the leader of two prides, and widely recognised for his unique dark mane before he was brutally shot by a trophy hunter.

He died because one man had the means and motivation to pay to hunt him. Please help us stop this happening to other wild animals like Cecil by visiting the link in our bio.

People here believe it is water and candy they are taking. I am here because someone fabulated suicidality about me. The activities here are drought of sadness, in my tears.

The annual Stellenbosch Waldorf School Class10 Greek Tragedy brought most who witnessed it to tears and at a loss for words. Gender violence is a Real Tragedy. A reminder of where we are and where we are heading unless we change our consciousness. Honoured to be called your Mother, Isabella. Humbled that you were chosen to portray Hecuba who spoke for all of us in your loud and clear, sweet voice. You were brilliant. Touched by the collective effort of every actor and actress. Moved by the raw emotion of your protest. Changed by your immense intensity. We are changed. #catharsis #greektragedy #hecuba #euripides #protest #protesttheatre #transformation #vulnerability #captivity #enslavement #bitterrevenge #sweetsixteen #tenderness #change #enoughisenough 📸@leen.vanroey 🙏🏽

Im beyond exhausted listening to humans defend their horrific purchases and the barbaric fur trade.
_______________________________________________________

#furfarming – an industry with devastating impacts on #animals, the #environment, and human #health. "Ireland’s three fur farms house an estimated 200,000 #mink, crammed into tiny wire-mesh cages. They are gassed to death and skinned when they are six months old." - via @the.independent

The majority of #fur today comes from animals raised on farms. The natural habitat of many of these animals is within plain sight, yet out of reach.
This life in #captivity causes these individuals to suffer from severe #stress, and the overcrowded conditions lead to dehydration, starvation, #disease, fighting, and even cannibalism”. 📸 Mink living in cages over piles of feces at a fur farm. #Sweden, 2009.

Jeremiah Denton was widely known for enduring almost eight years of grueling conditions as an American prisoner of war in North Vietnam after the A-6 Intruder he was piloting was shot down in 1965. Denton was forced by his captors to participate in a 1966 televised propaganda interview which was broadcast in the United States. While answering questions and feigning trouble with the blinding television lights, Denton blinked his eyes in Morse code, spelling the word "TORTURE"—and confirming for the first time to U.S. Naval Intelligence that American POWs were being tortured.

John Hargrove
.
Hargrove, who left SeaWorld in 2012—the year before Blackfish came out—after being disciplined for a safety violation, apparently had money problems. He saw an opportunity to profit by writing a book and taking part in a film, knowing that he would get free publicity from the media and animal rights groups like PETA. He would be showered with praise as the “insider” who “blew the whistle.” It’s a script we’ve seen many times.
Hargrove worked as a trainer for 14 years. If SeaWorld was so obviously bad for the animals under his purview, it wouldn’t have taken 14 years to figure out.
Consider research showing that dolphins and sea lions live longer at SeaWorld than they do in the wild. Research finds dolphins in human care enjoy interacting with their trainers. Read more from animal experts and veterinarians here: http://www.speakdolphin.com/mythsVsFacts.cfm

Government records show years of tax liens filed against Hargrove. Federal tax liens for 2006 and 2007 show Hargrove owing close to $8,000, and a separate federal filing covering 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, and 2005 totals over $16,000. State tax liens from New York (2007, 2010) total close to $3,500. Then there’s a California tax lien for the year 2000 for over $1,000.

Hargrove certainly spins a tale that fits right in with the media narrative put forth by PETA. But facts ought to matter. To quote a statement put out by the NAACP of California: “It is difficult to accept his authority on animal welfare issues if he does not treat fellow humans with dignity and respect.” #marineland #zookeeper #soigneuranimalier #blackfishlies #keepthetanksfull #orca #orque #killerwhale #dauphin #dolphin #seaworld #captivité #delphinarium #seaworldcares #captivity #bottlenosedolphin #tursiopstruncatus #loroparque #ourspolaire #polarbear #blackfish #emptythetanks #mymarineland #TheDolphinDoctoг #MarineBiologist #Bottlenosedolphin #boycottblackfish #captivitydolphins #dolphinshow

I make it no secret that I support facilities that responsibly care for marine mammals. This does not make me pro-cap. This makes me pro responsible management. You see, I believe that animal welfare is handled one marine mammal at a time. One-size-fits-all ideas like “empty the tanks” and sea pen sanctuaries are not good for everyone. Dolphins born under human care may not be exposed to the same pathogens as wild cetaceans or cetaceans born in lagoons. There may be significant immune challenges to putting some dolphins in seaside sanctuaries (forget even considering releasing such a marine mammal as it would never be permitted under the provisions of the Marine Mammal Protection Act). Dolphins born under human care may also like to swallow things and, as I’m sure you are aware, our oceans are covered in plastic. Furthermore, no one has yet been able to show me an adequate funding model for wide-scale cetacean sanctuaries that doesn’t rely on unstable donations for a revenue stream. .
So. I continue to support zoos and aquariums that responsibly manage their marine mammals and demonstrate their care through various accreditation bodies. These facilities are partners to myself and other scientists in both basic and conservation research. Without these animal care facilities we would have significantly less knowledge with which to use to combat the global conservation crisis marine mammals are now experiencing. Please know when you go to an accredited facility and they tell you they support research, odds are they are helping us do the kind of work necessary to improve the lives of these truly unique creatures.

Thank you,

Joke time for you all:
A capuchin, a patas monkey, and a macaque walk into an ESA training workshop... All the trainers survive but they’re like - *suuuuuuper* ugly now!

All jokes aside, this is an important topic that needs to be addressed: MONKEYS ARE NOT PETS. Feels odd that we have to say that still, but here we are.
In regards to this particular *case* - this woman claims these monkeys are ESAs for her PTSD.. 1) the ADA does NOT recognize monkeys as Emotional Support Animals.. 2) the video (linked below) shows the monkeys free range in the home with diapers. Diapers cause rashes and hair loss more often than not - ya know, since monkeys are kinda made to not wear clothes or whatever.. also - all three of these species have canines that I personally - even as a self proclaimed primate enthusiast - would never DREAM of being free contact with.
I don’t know exactly if there’s anything we can do as a global community to get these animals to a proper facility, but the court date is sometime in November so if your in Missouri US it may be worth looking into.

IMAN UPDATE! 🦁

Iman has been living at our Ensessa Kotteh sanctuary in Ethiopia for just over four weeks now, away from the dangers of the exotic pet trade. She is doing really well - here she is enjoying a bath!

A big thank you to all of our fantastic supporters - without you this wouldn't have been possible!

There's no excuse for treating sentient animals as if they're clowns in a circus!
What you're seeing in this video takes place across more than a dozen animal cafes in Japan.
Otters may look cute and cuddly, but they are NOT cats or dogs: They're #NotPets

MYTH: Trophy hunters provide a valuable service by removing old, infirm or problem animals. ❌

TRUTH: Trophy hunters typically target the most impressive animals that make the best trophies.

This has to stop. Visit our website to take action.

We're heartbroken to announce that Jasper, our adopted Indochinese tiger, has passed away.
He had reached the grand age of 21 after being rescued from poachers in 1998 and given a life-long home at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre in Cambodia. Although he had lived at the sanctuary for most of his life, Jasper behaved a lot like a tiger living in the wild, hiding under rocks and vegetation.
Thank you to everyone who enabled Jasper to live a long and happy life free from harm.

Cecil was an extremely recognisable lion with a dark mane and imposing presence. But on this day four years ago, he was killed by a trophy hunter.
Cecil’s death caused worldwide public outcry, bringing the brutal sport of trophy hunting to the fore. But many animals like Cecil are still needlessly killed by trophy hunters every day.
Animals belong in the wild – not on a wall. That’s why we’re launching a new campaign to ban trophy hunting.

We love this video and message from @dserradell_photo of the Revillagigedo Archipelago and its magical locals, the bottlenose dolphins ⁠
🐬⁠
"Living these encounters ON THE OPEN OCEAN, where it is them, NOT YOU, who decide when to interact and to do it or not, makes you realize how connected we are to nature and to other animals, but also how sad and unfair it is when we decide to take profit of it.⁠
Dolphins and any other animal, mustn’t be kept in #captivity. There is nothing that can justify keeping a marine mammal in a swimming pool just to fulfill some tourist dreams.⁠
COULD YOU IMAGINE YOUR SELF LIVING IN A 2m x 2m CAGE?⁠
Be cognizant of your actions and think before doing."⁠
