Today we handed over another letter to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, asking them to decide on the issue of Manila Ocean Park’s beluga whales import application. There’s urgency to this matter especially when there’s news of an ongoing construction of a facility at the Manila Ocean Park.
With more people including marine experts, environmentalists, and animal welfare groups standing up and being vocal against Manila Ocean Park’s plan to import beluga whales, now is the best time for BFAR to decide on the issue.
Even before the start of this petition up till now, BFAR haven’t spoken about the issue. They’re just sitting on our complaint. With scientific experts and animal welfare groups standing up and being vocal against the importation of beluga whales, now is the best time for BFAR to speak up on the issue. Help us add pressure by circulating the petition, emailing Director Asis Perez of BFAR at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org asking them to act on the issue right now! #NowNaBFAR
