She has been a slave for over 44 years at Miami Seaquarium, in the smallest orca tank in the world. ARC volunteer Melanie is attending the Miracle March for Lolita on January 17 in Miami and will bring further information about how we can help this whale who belongs to an endangered species of orca.

Signs will be provided, but feel free to make your own. NOTE: This is a coalition event of two distinct groups: the ARC No Pain in My Name campaign and Progress for Science. The protest will be fully in accordance with the law and the organizers of this event do not support trespassing or other types of disruptive activities.

End the Elephant Rides at the Renaissance Festival
Thanks to everyone who joined us in standing up for elephants at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival on Saturday, August 24. We passed out tons of fliers, educated attendees about why elephant rides are no fun for the elephants, and got lots of supportive honks from passing motorists who saw our signs.
ARC has learned from Animal Defenders International that the supplier for the elephant rides is Trunks & Humps. During one of the most disturbing video clips in “No Fun for Elephants,” handler Mike Swain beats an elephant named Krissy, viciously drags her to the ground with a hook, and then kicks her in the face. Krissy is “owned” by Trunks & Humps, run by Bill Swain, Mike Swain’s father.
The Bristol Renaissance Fair in Wisconsin chose not to have elephant rides this year. Let’s get Minnesota to follow suit. Please send a polite message to the Ren Fest asking them to make it their policy not to have performing elephants.
