Let The Dolphins Go! ~ Save The World's Saddest Dolphins!
2nd July, 2011 ~ Tasha & me went down to the "Save The World's Saddest Dolphins" roadshow @The Cathay. This campaign is organized by Acres. We love dolphins & we already showed our support in their FaceBook page, but we also wanna do it in person. And we appeal to all of you, my friends, to help save these dolphins.
Save The World's Saddest Dolphins!
The texts below were conveyed from Acres website:
Dolphins are highly social creatures that are accustomed to being in family pods. They are sensitive mammals capable of great emotion and feeling and intelligence. To abduct these animals from the wild, to rip them from their homes, to snatch them away from their mates & relatives and put them in a box is especially cruel. To use them for entertainment to generate money is downright exploitative. But that’s exactly what Resorts World Sentosa wants to do.
25 bottlenose dolphins that once roamed free & wild in the vast ocean are now facing a life of captivity, boredom, stress, frustration & slow death, thanks to RWS. 2 of these dolphins had already died during their ordeal. And what's life going to be like for the rest? Their world has already shrunk to a square sea pen, devoid of variety, bereft of sea life. They can’t hunt anymore. They beg & jump for handouts of dead fish. There’s nowhere for them to roam, except back & forth. And nothing to do except turn round & round & go slowly mad.
The late ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau said: “No aquarium, no tank in a marine land, however spacious it may be, can begin to duplicate the conditions of the sea. And no dolphin who inhabits one of those aquariums or one of those marine tanks can be considered normal.”
These dolphins face a bleak future. It is up to all of us to get Resorts World Sentosa to rethink their decision to keep them in captivity. Kindly lend your voice & support in asking them to let the dolphins go. Please help save the World's Saddest Dolphins!

Note: My dressings of a KittyCat Girl were for participating in Mascot Parade 2011 which was held at a nearby location(Scape Mall) later in the afternoon. My involvement at this event will be updated here on a later date.
