Whales and Dolphins in Captivity

Imagine being kidnapped and living the rest of your life in a small windowless room devoid of anything or anyone familiar to you. That’s the life of a captive, wild-caught dolphin or whale. This brochure looks at the unsafe and inhumane aspects of the captive cetacean industry, and tells what you can do to make a difference. Also available in French and Spanish.

Sharks At Risk

Sharks have ruled the oceans for more than 400 million years, evolving into the nearly 500 species known today. Now, however, overfishing and the extremely cruel shark fin trade are seriously depleting shark populations worldwide. Learn how you can be an advocate for sharks. Also available in Chinese.
