OPERATION BLUE SKIES : Make the skies "dolphin-safe"- stop the carriage of cetaceans to marine parks


This is Freedom Blue's "Operation Blue Skies" - an initiative to identify and support "dolphin-safe" airlines. That is, those airlines and air transport operators who decline to transport whales, dolphins and other cetaceans for the purposes of entertainment to marine parks, aquariums and dolphinariums.

There is a growing recognition world-wide that dolphins, orcas, and other cetaceans do not belong in captivity. Consumer boycotts have forced all of England's marine-mammal exhibits to close. Israel and Australia prohibit the importation of dolphins for use in entertainment. More recently, India banned dolphinariums and other commercial entertainment involving the capture and confinement of cetacean species such as orcas and bottlenose dolphins.

Despite these positive changes, marine amusement parks continue to flourish in other nations.
It is time to let cargo transport operators who carry captive cetacean specimens for marine amusement parks know that a growing number of people around the world do not support this practice, and therefore cannot support and patronize airline operators who undertake the transport of captive whales and dolphins.

"Operation Blue Skies" aims to identify those operators who pledge support for the rights of cetaceans by refusing carriage of specimens. Freedom Blue asks all concerned citizens to support and patronize those airlines who uphold the Blue Skies ethic, and to urge those carriers currently transporting marine mammals to do the same.
