STILL HERE: a better way to look at Free Tilikum Day

November 14 is here again – the day we use to bring awareness
to Tilikum, the captive orca whale. But it’s been about six years since the
first “Free Tilikum Protest Day” and Tilikum is still living in a pool at
SeaWorld. Are all our efforts and cries for justice futile? We don’t think so.
Free Tilikum Protest Day
comes every year on November 14. We wouldn’t be
who we are today were it not for Tilikum the orca whale inspiring us to take action. But this idea has grown from the
freedom of this one whale to the freedom of all
captive cetaceans. We believe that we can make a difference. We believe that we can set these captives free.  We started Free Tilikum Day because we wanted
everyone to turn and look and see this injustice happening right under our
noses and say, “Hey. That’s wrong.
But after six years of raising the same ruckus, it’s easy to
lose hope. These beautiful, intelligent creatures are still in captivity. But does that mean we should stop trying to
free them? Absolutely not. As long as they
are still there,
we have to show marine parks that we are still here. We are still fighting! We don’t care how long it
takes, we are going to keep fighting
until these animals are free.
Don’t lose hope. We ARE making a difference. Keep fighting,
and let everyone know that YOU ARE STILL
