People really do not understand how sickening Dolphinariums and Aquariums are.
The last two days I have been picking up on some subtle, and some not so subtle, advertisements for Dolphinariums.
*To start… for everyone who is on Facebook you know that games like Farmville and Cityville are very popular! Well, today I was playing Cityville and when I clicked on the application a little advertisement came up telling me to build an aquarium in my city. The picture, for the add, was a cartoon Orca in a tank with a “trainer” giving it a hug. My jaw literally dropped! Unfortunately the game loaded before I could take a picture… but I am surprisingly shocked! Swim with dolphin programs are becoming so popular, they are turning into norms!
*Yesterday I was watching TV and this commercial for a “dolphin experience”, at some Casino, came on!! The people who pay to experience these atrocities, well I will just be blunt, are stupid! You’d have to be a complete idiot to think that a Casino is home for a dolphin!
I am very frustrated with how popular swim with Dolphin programs are and are becoming! Of course, this is nothing new… It has only been poking at my nerves the last two days.
*What finally sent me over the edge… was this article: Opening April 2, AT&T Dolphin Tales is an incredible new gallery, theater and show, the biggest expansion yet at the world’s largest aquarium.
“Dolphins have arrived at Georgia Aquarium!” and AT&T is funding/sponsoring it! I am disgusted to say that AT&T happens to be my cell phone carrier… and we can’t leave our contract for two years. Please, if you are looking at switching cell services or you are just joining the network… please do not support AT&T!!!
Georgia Aquarium’s new $110 million dolphin exhibit features a 1.8 million gallon habitat for bottlenose dolphins. It includes a lobby with an underwater viewing window, a 1,800-seat theater featuring a live production with dolphins, human actors and singers, and special effects and lighting.
Well… I think I have said about all I can say right now. I’ll let the links speak for themselves! I am hoping that we can start a calling campaign to AT&T, like we did with the embassies when the boats went hunting!!!!
