Marineland Animal Abuse

As a Former Marineland Trainer, I Can Tell You That Dolphins Feel

In Taiji, Japan 52 dolphins were taken captive (to be sold to international aquariums) and 40 were slaughtered for their meat. Of the 52 captives, despair will most likely also be their "inexplicable" cause of death. This assertion may seem bold, but as a former marine mammal trainer of 12 years at Marineland of Canada, I can attest to the grief and suffering these sentient beings experience.

How Marineland Is Using the Law to Silence Protestors

Marineland has a right to deny some people entry to its park and to try to ensure that those who want to visit the park can access it safely. However, the steps that it has taken in court to date, and those that are threatened by its legal team, go well beyond these rights. We should all be allowed to protest on issues that we believe in without fearing a lawsuit and without being told which words we can use to make our point. And we should all be concerned when our courts, already overburdened and inaccessible to so many with pressing legal needs, are used by a corporate actor to silence its critics.

They're Out of the News, But Marineland's Animals Still Need You

By now, you know all you need to about Marineland. You know that it's a house of horrors for the animals that live there. Some time has elapsed since the initial uproar, and much of it has been spent sending kids back to school or catching a TIFF film or two. We now find ourselves in a scary limbo. Public awareness just isn't enough. If we don't start acting on our convictions, then our province will continue to regress.
