Marine Mammal Events

Two important events are quickly approaching for marine mammal activists.

We are hoping that everyone will get involved in one or both of these events:

Marine Mammal Freedom Weekend (MMFW) - Memorial Day

Weekend, which this year is May 27-29.

World Week for Captive Dolphins - July 1-8.

ORCA and In Defense of Animals are coordinating actions in U.S./Canada for MMFW and World Week. Traditionally, actions taking place during these events include protests at marine parks and aquariums, leafleting, tabling, media events, etc.

If you are involved in a campaign against a marine park or aquarium, please participate in either one of both of these important events. We particularly hope to include actions at the following facilities:

Sea World - San Diego, San Antonio, Cleveland, Orlando

Vancouver Aquarium

Shedd Aquarium

Dallas World Aquarium

Miami Seaquarium


Hershey Park, Pennsylvania

Edmonton Mall

Point Defiance Aquarium

Texas State Aquarium, Corpus Christi

Virginia Marine Science Museum

There are of course many others. And, if you don't live in an area with a facility displaying captive marine mammals, you can still participate. We can supply you with ideas and materials, if needed.

If you would like to be involved and can help plan something in your area, or would like further information, please contact Cathy O'Brien or Suzanne Roy at the address/phone/e-mail below.

Thanks all for your help. Really hope to have a great turnout this year and to make MMFW and World Week bigger and better than ever.
