Ex SeaWorld trainer gives WDC anti captivity campaign a boost

Ex SeaWorld trainer John Hargrove signs WDC anti captivity petition

Thanks to all of you who came to see us on our stand at the weekend WhalelFest 2015 UK event in Brighton. During the two days we were able to talk to many visitors about the wonderful world of whales and dolphins the threats that they face, and about our petition asking British Airways stop selling trips to SeaWorld.

Among those who did visit to our stand and sign the petition was John Hargrove (pictured) , former SeaWorld trainer who now campaigns against keeping whales and dolphins in captivity.
