In the New York Aquarium, BELUGA WHALES endure a grueling existence swimming around in circles in their tiny, artificial chlorine-filled environments. Life in their concrete or plexiglass tanks is NOT natural or educational. Beluga whales are known as the "CANARIES OF THE SEA" because of their constant wide-ranging vocalizations, but living a solemn imprisonment in tiny man-made tanks, these gentle white giants of the sea are SILENT. Join the New York Whale and Dolphin Action League for a PROTEST at the New York Aquarium on Monday, September 5, 2005, from 12 noon - 3 PM. The event is being held in memory of BEN WHITE, a world renowned activist who once jumped into the NY AQ's beluga tank to bring attention to the cruel treatment and exploitation of whales and dolphins in the captivity industry. Bring signs, banners, posters, and your PRESENCE! HELP BRING ATTENTION TO THE WHALES' MISERABLE EXISTENCE at the NEW YORK AQUARIUM and CALL FOR A CLOSURE OF THE expensive, high-maintenance NY AQUARIUM BELUGA WHALE DISPLAY! Meet at the entrance to the Aquarium on the Boardwalk at West 8th St. Take either the D train to the Stillwell Avenue station or the F or Q train to the West 8th Street station in Coney Island, Brooklyn.
