Whales and dolphins belong in the ocean, wild and free.

The world is changing.

We no longer find it acceptable to capture and confine these sentient ocean-dwellers. The world is reimagining how we can connect with these amazing animals–not at the cost of their life or freedom, and not for our entertainment. Whale and dolphin sanctuaries will create a new ethic, reforming our relationship with these incredible beings and providing for the enrichment and long-term care for those that cannot be returned to the wild. Whale and dolphin sanctuaries provide a pathway towards freedom and a hopeful end to a ruthless industry.

Captivity is just another form of whaling.

While we seek to gain global protection for all whales and dolphins from hunting and capture, we can build a better future for those already in captivity and redefine our relationship with these magnificent creatures.
