Keep Whales Wild – Cétacés Libres is a non-profit French Organisation sharing worldwide news to raise awereness on the matter of captivity in marine parks.
These cetaceans, to whom we have denied thier birth right: freedom.
Before becoming an organisation in 2018, Keep Whales Wild – Cétacés Libres had been an informative website since 2012.
News about cetacean captivity were mostly in English: Therefore, the main goal was to share the information in French.
Reading countries not only beeing French speaking, the website gradually transformed into a bilingual one:
- French speaking readers would get the worldwide information
- All the other readers were familiar with the latest news concerning captivity in France
As a registered organisation, Keep Whales Wild stresses its fight for the freedom of cetaceans.
Our main actions:
- Getting the definitive closing or reconversion of the 3 French Marine Parks: le Parc Astérix (Plailly, 60), Planète Sauvage (Port St Père, 44) et Marineland (Antibes, 06).
- Financial support for the creation of sea sanctuaries for the rehabilitation of captive cetaceans. (For instance the Whale Sanctuary Project)
- Financial support for internatinal organisations (WDC, Dolphin Project, etc.)
- Sharing the latest news at each new season, in French and in English.
