Tell Mastercard: Stop Supporting the Live Dolphin Trade


27 wild dolphins were recently captured in the Solomon Islands. Since their capture, two have already died. They wait in temporary holding pens for Resorts World Singapore, or RWS, to complete its marine mammal park. There, they will live our the remainder of their shortened lives by entertaining people in order to turn a profit for RWS. Many will die within the first seven years. 

Mastercard is currently running a special promotion with RWS. The special began in July and ends on November 18th. During the promotion, cardholders can purchase discounted tickets to RWS and receive a retail voucher if they use their Mastercard. 

Ask Mastercard to end their promotion with Resort World Sentosa and send a strong message to the resort that kidnapping wild dolphins isn't acceptable. Tell them NOT to do business with other theme parks like SeaWorld's Discovery Cove and stop promoting the live dolphin trade.
