Canada: Help Bill S-203 Pass Its Final Stage in the House of Commons!

6.6.19Update: This action is now closed. Bill S-203 passed the House of Commons on June 10, 2019!

Bill S-203, Ending the Captivity of Whales and Dolphins Act, is at its final stage in the Canadian House of Commons! Once enacted into law, the bill will make breeding and keeping cetaceans in captivity a criminal offense in Canada.

LCA's shocking, five-month undercover investigation into Marineland Canada exposed horrendous abuse and neglect of beluga whales being held at the park. LCA documented belugas suffering from untreated skin conditions, eye abnormalities, and "rake marks"visible scarring from being attacked and bitten by other whales while confined in the pool. 


WATCH the video below to learn more about LCA's undercover investigation of Marineland.

Thanks to your support, the bill previously passed one of its biggest hurdles: advancing through the Standing Committee on Fisheries and Oceans unamended after Marineland's last-minute request for amendments to the bill.
