Insider account #5: Dead animals dumped in the bin

Insider account #5: Dead animals dumped in the bin

Some of the wild-caught fish regularly delivered to SEA LIFE aquariums from Australia’s Great Barrier Reef die on the long journey. A number of fish have been found dead on arrival. These animals were “bagged up and binned”. An insider said there was little reaction to the arrival of dead animals. It was expected that some would perish on the journey.

Many fish die in transit, said whistleblower

  • this is wrong and should be stopped there is no reason for wild animals or marine life should be taken out of their natural habitat just to die

      Caps’ activists: Are you free to help us raise awareness about the imprisoned belugas on Saturday June 6th?

      A worldwide Empty the Tanks Day of Action launches on June 6th from London and the USA. We are are collaborating with Empty the Tanks and we hope you can support our Sea Life anti-captivity protests in London, Birmingham and Manchester. Please let us know if you can plan a protest at these or any of the other Sea Life centres in the country listed from their website:

      We must keep pressure on Merlin/Sea Life in the UK while they remain in constant public denial of their hypocrisy about the 3 belugas imprisoned for profit in Shanghgai.

      SEA LIFE is owned by Merlin Entertainments, the second largest visitor attraction operator in the world, famous for their theme parks and attractions. One of their biggest claims is that they believe no cetacean (whale, dolphin or porpoise) should be held captive, and in fact claim they campaign to end such practices. Merlin own an aquarium operating as part of the SEA LIFE brand which holds these three beluga whales, all of whom are forced to perform daily to crowds in circus-style shows.

      We are calling on Merlin to end the public shows and invest some of their multimillion pound profits into building a sanctuary for these poor whales; to show some compassion to these beautiful creatures and stop this public torment!

      Please let us know if you are free on 06/06/15 to join or organise a protest.
      Contact Freedom for Animals asap about any campaign materials you may need and ideas you want to share.

      Thank you.
