March On Marineland -Success!


This article is taken from the Marineland Animal Defense site. I was fortunate to be asked to be a guest speaker at this event and what an honour that was :)

MAD E-News: We Did It! Hundreds Marched on Marineland!

Hey MAD’rs,

Last Saturday the captive animal facility Marineland Canada opened for its 53rd season and it was met with the first ever march through downtown Niagara Falls onto the facility! Hundreds took to the streets of Niagara Falls - marching from HWY 420 and through the tourist district - to let the public know that we want an end to animal captivity!

The crowd was electric - driven by chants and a marching band - and the impact was undeniable. A new chapter in the 40+ years of opposition to Marineland has begun.

Some of the best photos of the day are attached and links to some of the best media coverage is below.

A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered, participated and supported the #MarchOnMarineland. This could not have happened without a massive team effort and we are so grateful for all of the support!
