CAPS joins World Cetacean Alliance as the SEA LIES campaign moves up a gear

CAPS is delighted to announce that, following the launch of the SEA LIES campaign, which calls upon the world’s largest aquarium brand, SEA LIFE, to end its circus-style whale shows in its Shanghai centre, the charity has joined forces with the World Cetacean Alliance (WCA) to drive the campaign forward.

The WCA is comprised of over fifty partner organisations; all working with the shared aim of protecting cetaceans in their natural habitat and ending their use in captivity. CAPS Director, Liz Tyson, said:

“We are absolutely delighted to join this important partnership working for the protection of cetaceans. To have the support of the Alliance and its fifty-plus strong membership will add significant weight to the ongoing SEA LIES campaign. We look forward immensely to working with our new partners in seeking an end to Merlin and SEA LIFE’s continued exploitation of wild-caught whales for entertainment”.

Established on 8th July 2013 (World Ocean Day), the World Cetacean Alliance was formed to effectively protect the world’s cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises) from the many and varied threats that they face.

As of 1st January 2014 the World Cetacean Alliance includes 54 partners in 20 countries representing North America, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania.

“We are delighted to welcome The Captive Animals’ Protection Society as a Partner of the World Cetacean Alliance.” stated Dylan Walker, of the Alliance.

“Our Partners work together and support each other to protect whales and dolphins around the World. Right now, the captivity issue is at the heart of much of the WCA’s work. No doubt we will benefit from CAPS’ experience on this issue and we will look to work closely together to free whales and dolphins from captivity as swiftly as we can.”
