Tell Carnival to stop exploiting dolphins

** This petition is now closed. Thank you for your support. **

Carnival claims to be ‘The World’s Most Popular Cruise Line ®’. But it’s no carnival for dolphins. 

Passengers on Carnival's cruise ships are offered a variety of 'shore excursions' including dolphin theme parks where holidaymakers can hug, kiss and swim with captive dolphins.

Hug and kiss dolphins...seriously?

Can you believe that dolphins are put through this...over and over, day after day...for our amusement?

The tide is turning against imprisoning dolphins for human 'entertainment'. There is no place for cruelty like this in the 21st century.

Carnival says it’s the industry leader. Now it’s time for them to prove it.

Tell Carnival to sail the cruise industry out of the dark ages and stop exploiting dolphins.

Carnival offers customers the chance to kiss dolphins. This is exploitation.

Dolphins should not be held captive to be kissed by tourists every day. Dolphins should be free to live with their families making their own choices about how they spend their days.

Carnival is the largest cruise operator in the world. It owns big names like P&O Cruises, Princess Cruises, Cunard and others. We have been raising this issue with Carnival and its subsidiaries for years now. We’ve provided them with information about how swim-with-dolphins facilities are bad for the dolphins held captive and forced to interact with tourists, as well as for the environment and the wild dolphin populations left behind.

We’ve given them the evidence and yet they still promote these cruel dolphin 'shore-excursions'. It’s time they stopped fobbing us off. It’s time for you to tell them that you won’t tolerate this cruelty.

If Carnival takes a stand, others may follow. So let's ask Carnival to show us they're the leader they claim to be. It's time to stop profiting from dolphin exploitation.
