I would like to remind you we cannot “attack” this White Party, just nicely try our best to inform them on the perils that can arise from throwing this party at the SQ. What they do for HIV/Aids awareness is great, but they don’t need to harm the SQ animals in the process. Kindly urge people who would like to support the cause to send in donations, but don’t attend the party.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Within the last week two dolphins have died at a Swiss dolphinarium after a “techo party” was thrown across the street. http://whiteparty.org/events/the-white-party

The Local – Dolphin dies after Swiss techno party

www.thelocal.ch

A dolphin has died at a Swiss amusement park just weeks after conservationists warned that loud noises could cause extreme distress to the cetaceans at a dolphinarium in the eastern town of Lipperswil.

WRS | Second dolphin dies at Conny-Land (after techno party)

www.worldradio.ch

Animal rights groups have called for three remaining dolphins to be seized from the Conny-Land amusement park in canton Thurgau following the death of the second dolphin there in under a week.

loud noises for prolonged periods of time can cause elevated levels of stress which can lower cetaceans immune system response and essentially lead to sickness and/or death.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
