2) Let aquaria like Marineland and their corporate sponsors know how you feel. Tell your friends. Write letters-to-the-editor. Tell school boards why you are
opposed to field trips to marine parks and aquaria.

The Honourable Herb Dhaliwal, MP
Minister of Fisheries and Oceans
House of Commons

Ask the Minister to pass laws to protect whales and dolphins. Right now, we have virtually no legal protection for these animals. Urge the Minister to extend Canada's current ban on the capture of beluga whales in Canadian waters for export, to
include Canadian aquaria as well. And request that tough standards for marine mammals in
captivity be implemented. During your visit to the Niagara tourist region, you have
choices: You can see captive "nature"-orcas and dolphins who have been forced
into lives filled with misery and boredom. Or, you can celebrate the majesty of wild
"nature". Niagara Falls is one to the seven wonders of the world and part of the
United Nations Niagara Escarpment World Biosphere Reserve.
