Join Sea Shepherd Conservation Society to end the capture and captivity of dolphins and whales by demonstrating against the IMATA Conference at Sea World
Sea Shepherd Conservation Society will be leading a demonstration at Sea World Orlando demanding an end to the capture, captivity and enslavement of whales and dolphins to work for entertainment. IMATA, is an organization that supports and certifies trainers at marine parks all over the world like Sea World & Loro Parque. IMATA claims to not be affiliated with The Cove, but several representatives from Japan will be in attendance! These are the very people selling and buying the babies of butchered dolphins from the waters of Taiji, Japan!
IMATA is having their largest conference in history and its 2,500 participants will be on Sea World premise the entire day of our demonstration. IMATA’s use of Sea World’s tanks and captive animals means the animals will be forced to endure multiple full days of exposure to people who have no experience around whales and dolphins before. This will certainly cause even more undue stress and possibly harm to these magnificent creatures or IMATA’s participants!
Sea Shepherd invites all to join us for the peaceful demonstration to raise your voices for the dolphins and whales. We will show Sea World and all the members of the IMATA conference the love felt by the people of the world for whales and dolphins. You might not be able to go to Japan, as Sea Shepherd Cove Guardians do, but you can join the fight right here in Orlando!
We will meet promptly at 10:30am at the Sea World Gate at the intersection of Central Florida Parkway and Discovery Cove Way
Show your Sea Shepherd pride at this once in a lifetime event! We have included 3 different Sea Shepherd posters for you to choose from and have printed! These can be sized to your preference up to 2 ft x 3ft and even larger.
