MasterCard is offering discounted tickets to the infamous Resorts World Sentosa, a resort in Singapore that recently kidnapped 27 wild dolphins for an exhibit. Two of those dolphins have already died, and the other 25 are being held in brutal conditions until construction of the exhibit is complete. The surviving dolphins' risks of illness and death increase with each day of captivity. While dolphins in the wild usually live for 45 years, more than half of all captured dolphins die within their first two years of captivity.
100,000 Change.org members have already called on Resorts World Sentosa to release its captive dolphins. If Mastercard cancels its ticket discount promotion, it will put big financial pressure on the resort to finally set the dolphins free.
Our Mission: Put up an outdoor billboard in St. Louis next to MasterCard’s operation headquarters, demanding the end of their promotion with RWS. Our billboard will not only educated people of this crime but will most likely receiev news coverage further pressuring MasterCard to take a stand on this issue. MasterCard has the ability to send a lasting message to RWS and all future theme parks around the world that kidnapping wild dolphins won’t be tolerated.
A giant outdoor billboard can’t be ignored. It can’t be turned off. Our billboard will command attention, turn heads, and raise eyebrows. Our voice will be heard!
