Activists Uniting For The Benefit of Animals

Urge Georgia Aquarium to abandon it’s plans to import 18 Beluga Whales

Please urge Georgia Aquarium to abandon its plans to import these animals. Tell it that beluga whales should not be puppets of an entertainment industryprofiting under the guise of conservation and education, while ripping the animals away

from their families, homes, and freedom. Importing 18 wild-caught beluga whales captured from a recovering population from Russia is not the way to promote conservation and education. Write, email or call:

Mr. David Kimmel
President and Chief Operating Officer
Georgia Aquarium
225 Baker Street, NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30313

Email: dkimmel@georgiaaquarium.org
Tel: 404-581-4000

Tell him:
To please withdraw the permit request to import 18 beluga whales that Georgia Aquarium submitted to the National Marine Fisheries Service on June 15.
That you refuse to patronize Georgia Aquarium or any of its partner aquariums until this action is taken.
That brutally removing these animals from the wild for the purpose of public display is archaic and that captive beluga whales suffer from stress, poor health, and increased mortality.
That conservation is about protecting species and their habitats in the wild, not capturing them for public display.
