1. Fly Boarding Is An Epic Way To Spend Your Day
We did it at Aquaworld and it was incredible. My sister towered high above the water taking a calm and steady approach. I went for a messier turn and topple over approach.
Either way we both absolutely loved it.
2. Forcing Sharks To Vomit Is The Worst Way To Spend Your Day
At the start of the tourist season locals capture several nurse sharks (very timid and gentle reef sharks). They’re trapped in tiny pens on Isla Mujeres.
Tourists can pay to have them dragged out of the water for a photo. Even worse many places will repeatedly heave them in the throat until they vomit from fear and pain.
3. CoCo Bongos Will Be The Best Night Of Your Life
I’m not even going to try and convince you why. The video is everything you need to know.
I bloody loved it ??
4. Snorkelling With Shipwrecks and Turtles Is Incredible
A coral reef, big schools of fish, stingrays, turtles and a shipwreck. What more could you want!?
Just make sure you don’t touch any wildlife or stand on any coral!
5. Starving Dolphins For Entertainment Isn’t Fun
Dolphin Discovery has dolphins, manatees and sea lions are trapped in small netted pens. The mantees and sea lions are left for a life of boredom. The dolphins are forced to perform, if they don’t perform they don’t eat. Similar to the tactics used at Sea World.
Dolphinaris in Cancun is just as bad. It’s not possible to ethically keep dolphins in captivity.
YOU CAN HELP CANCUN’S ANIMALS
Places like Dolphin Discovery, Dolphinaris and the nurse shark pens only exist because tourists are funding them. If the demand disapears, so will the supply!
Step 1: Share to raise awareness.
Step 2: Review Dolphin Discovery on TripAdvisor telling would-be tourists what really happens there!
Step 3: Sign the WDC petition to stop dolphin & whales being transported into captivity.
