JOIN THE FREE KISKA MOVEMENT TODAY!
We at RAISE UR PAW, a Canadian Federally Incorporated Not-For-Profit, are determined and dedicated to use everything within us to see Kiska, the last remaining captive orca in Canada, either freed to the wild, or to a sea sanctuary --- away from the isolated existence that she is enduring right now.
In Ontario, there has been a bill passed that bans the selling, buying and breeding of Orcas, but according to what many are stating is that Kiska is excluded from this new marine mammal legislation - which leaves her (Kiska) to endure this life of loneliness, isolation and misery.
Keeping innocent Kiska enslaved in this life and treated in this manner, we believe that this should be a violation of rights that she should possess as a living being, and a hazard to her welfare and well-being as well (physically and psychologically)... Unfortunately, Marineland continues to defend their actions and has support from individuals stating that Kiska is their "property" - a term that should never be used for a living being.
PLEASE ADD YOUR VOICE & SIGN THE PETITION: https://www.change.org/p/prime-minister-of-canada-justin-trudeau-premier-of-ontario-kathleen-wynne-help-save-kiska-world-s-loneliest-orca (Over 5K so far - let's keep the support going & voices raised)
It is this movement that we are hoping to achieve laws in which makes it illegal to keep orcas in captivity, and with this including beloved Kiska, and also to create stronger laws for all captive life. With Kiska being the last captive orca in Canada, her freedom to the wild or to sea sanctuary would be a huge step forward in the fight against captivity - to demonstrate to the rest of the World that we have compassion for life, and that other Governments should follow within our steps.
However, such a movement cannot be achieved unless we have the support of individuals, and political figures of power and influence to make enough pressure for such a milestone to be taken. We are hoping to achieve this pressure, to show that the voices of the people can make a difference & impact.
AUGUST 2016 WE WILL BE CAMPAIGNING TO FREE KISKA - YOUR SUPPORT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED - DETAILS TO COME.
We, at Raise Ur Paw, are hoping that we can count on you, to lend your voices for not only KISKA but for all the innocent lives that are enduring this slavery, to unite and make a stand with countless others as we push forward to being the change we want to see in this World and that all lives matter.
