Empty the Tanks worldwide also in Nuremberg/Germany

In November 2013 I have traveled from Germany to Japan to be a voice for the dolphins of Taiji.
There I met Rachel Carbary, who I stood strong side by side as a Cove Guardian. She told me about her movement of „Empty the Tanks worldwide“ and asked me to maybe initiate an event for Germany and I promised to do my best to do so.

And here we go, currently we have 243 registrations for the event in Nuremberg / Germany@ Tiergarten & Delfinlagune, which turned out to be a first success.
The event itself will be a success for sure as we all stay strong together and let the Tiergarten know what we think about this kind of enslavement of dolphins in concrete tanks.

This is the facebook event page link:

All dedicated dolphin lovers can hardly wait to give the dolphins their voice.

Please read below Rachel Carbary´s thoughts of „Empty the Tanks“

Empty the Tanks Worldwide was an idea that first began while I was in Taiji, Japan as a Cove Guardian. I knew coming home would be difficult and I wanted to find a way to continue making a difference. That was how Empty the Tanks got its start.

This isn’t a radical movement to release all the captive marine mammals into the wild. Some of these animals might be great candidates for release, but those that are not should be retired into sea pens, where they can enjoy the rest of their days in natural seawater, feeling the waves of the ocean around them. They should not be worked until their last breath is taken and then thrown out like trash and replaced.

These entertainment parks have no place in the 21st century. We know the level of awareness these animals have. We know their social connections, their eating habits, and natural wild behaviors. You cannot breed natural instincts out of an animal in a handful of generations. These are incredibly social, intelligent beings that are being used to make money. It is animal slavery, and it needs to be brought to the general public’s attention.

Empty the Tanks Worldwide is a public awareness campaign. It is a opportunity to educate the general public about a situation they are simply ignorant to. These annual events will allow activists to reach the public all over the world in a positive and productive way.

Please join us and help get the message out.

Together we can make a stand, make some noise, and empty the tanks worldwide.
