Rallygoers carried signs that asked the Aquarium ‘how many animals died today’
They say captivity needs to come to an end.
“I don’t think dolphins and whales should be in captivity.”
“I’m here because I don’t believe that we should have these giant beautiful creatures in captivity.”
“I’m here to speak out on behalf of the animals here and just hope that you know people will make the connection.”
The protest was one of 60 taking place around the world, asking aquariums to ’empty their tanks’
A Bill is currently before the Senate in Canada to end the breeding and captivity of whales and dolphins.
