SteveO, Mirage & SeaWorld Are Connected!

SteveO, Mirage & SeaWorld Are Connected!

Steveo.JPGStunt performer Steve-o, known mostly for his time spent with “Jackass”, recently outed himself as the prankster activist who defaced the California highway sign for Seaworld Drive to read “Seaworld Sucks”. This stunt has drawn the eyes of many, and opened up the eyes to thousands more who would of never known about the issue otherwise. We thank Steve-o for risking his life and taking the time to speak out for the killer whales in captivity at Seaworld.

We would like to take this time to let Steve-o know about the conditions the dolphins are facing in Las Vegas. It was just last year he was in the city performing with Tom Green (not at an MGM property!) We don’t expect Steve-o to pull another stunt- we just hope he will also use his celebrity to become a voice for the Mojave Dolphins. They need all the help they can get. If more people are aware of the issues, we will be able to get the support of the public and get the dolphins better protection. A tweet by him will reach his million followers, and spark attention and interest.

We have created a list of tweets that you can use, but feel free to make up your own and use photos. Stay polite, factual, and respectful! It is the best way to get our message across.

#Tweet4Taiji – Red Cove Tweet Sheets

The annual hunt of small cetaceans in Taiji, Japan began a little over two weeks ago on Sept. 1st 2014. We were blessed with two straight weeks of “Cove Blue” – meaning that the dolphins were safe in the ocean, swimming free with their pods away from hunters grasp. The last 3 days have been “Cove Red” – dolphins were captured and slaughtered.

The first pod was captured on Sept 16th 2014 – a pod of Rissos. The next day, Sept 17th, more Rissos were driven and slaughtered, with a few being sent back to sea. The 18th… more Rissos! This is horrible news!

This needs to get global attention. Tell your family, tell your friends, tell your local news. There is a tweet sheet being passed around to activists to help get the word out for all 4 types of situations. Please lend your voice below:

Pod Driven Toward Cove – Use this page when a pod of dolphins is currently being driven towards to the killing cove.

Pod Trapped In Cove – Once the killers have netted the dolphins into the cove, start sending out these alerts.

Blood in the Water – I can’t even write about this without a heavy feeling in my heart. These tweets let media know that dolphins have now died in the waters of Taiji.

Pod Trapped Overnight – Dolphins will be trapped in the killing cove overnight, sometimes for days in a row. This adds even more stress to the dolphins.

The dolphins of Taiji are unable to use their voice to help themselves. These dolphins do not belong to Japan. They belong to the people of the world. We do not want anymore dolphins to be driven, sold into captivity, or slaughtered for human consumption. We must take it upon ourselves to educate the people and the media to this inhumane practice. Dolphins are going to die. Right now.

Reminder: We will be screening “The Cove” for free on Oct 2nd, 7:30pm in Las Vegas. Ric O’Barry from The Dolphin Project will be there to answer questions. Get all the details by clicking here!

Ariana Grande, do you still love dolphins?

5372511341_c292e2f3fdIt is undeniable that Ariana Grande is one of the biggest pop stars on the scene right now. In just under a year, she has released two albums that have debuted at #1. She has acted in two Nickelodeon television shows, and even performed on Broadway. Ariana is known as a celebrity that has a big devotion to her fans, spending time DMing them on twitter, sending inspirational messages, and generally trying to be a good role model. What most people might not know about her is that Ariana LOVES dolphins!

Last night, Ariana’s facebook page announced that she will performing a concert on Friday, Sept 19th at 1OAK club inside the Mirage hotel and casino. The very same hotel that has been enslaving dolphins for 24 years without even a simple shade structure to protect them from the sun that reaches temperatures of 117F in the summer.The very same hotel that is responsible for the dolphin swim-with program regulations to be put on hold.



ariana-grande-blackfish-tweetIt is possible that Ariana just has no idea about what is going on within the confines of this hotel. Even people in Las Vegas are oblivious to the fact that dolphins even live in the Mojave desert thanks to MGM resorts. Just last year, Ariana made a public statement denouncing SeaWorld and their use of cetaceans for captivity. Killer whales are just one type of dolphin. SeaWorld is tied to the Mirage because they have a “breeding loan” program, with 3 dolphins in Las Vegas arriving from SeaWorld. We also speculate the origin of the poxvirus to be the SeaWorld shipment of 2010.

Ariana has proven that she is a reachable celebrity with a willingness to change, and a love for animals (ps- she’s vegan!). We would like to take the time to reach out to her with a couple of tweets in hopes she may rethink her choice of a concert venue next week, or at the very least- see the dolphins for herself, in their pathetic small pool, covered with skin lesions, and use her very powerful voice to become an advocate for their better care.

Take the pledge @ArianaGrande at http://MojaveDolphins.Com  #MojaveDolphins #CaptivityKills No different than Seaworld (Tweet This!)
