BREAKING Dr. Naomi Rose to attend Niagara Screening of Blackfish

Blackfish organizers are proud to announce that highly respected marine biologist Dr. Naomi Rose, of the Animal Welfare Institute will be attending the Niagara screening of Blackfish on September 27th in St. Catharines.

Dr. Rose has worked tirelessly on international marine mammal protection issues around the world. Her areas of expertise include whaling, whale and dolphin watching and marine ecotourism, the dolphin-safe tuna label, marine sanctuaries, acoustic harassment, captive marine mammals (including swim-with-the-dolphin programs), the Marine Mammal Protection Act, and the sport hunting of polar bears, as well as the protection of walruses, seals, sea lions, manatees, dugongs and sea otters.

Dr. Rose is no stranger to the issues surrounding Marineland Canada and in previous visits has worked with groups such as Zoocheck Canada to highlight the woeful conditions animals endure at this facility. Recently Dr. Rose was featured as one of the main protagonists in David Kirby’s best selling book Death at Seaworld.

It is an honour to have Dr. Rose as well as former Seaworld trainer and anti captivity activist Samantha Berg together in attendance for a Q&A session following the historic screening of Blackfish in Niagara.
