BAN Animal Trading (Bat) continued in their quest to rid the world of animal cru­elty as they held a peaceful protest demo-nstration outside the Ushaka Marine World on Saturday.

Speaking on behalf of the Pietermaritzburg branch of Bat, Saihashna Rajkumar said that the purpose of their protest was to highlight the struggles of marine life within human confines.

“This demonstration was the seventh worldwide annual event to protest dolphin and whale captivity for human entertainment while also promoting the health of our oceans,” said Rajkumar.

Rajkumar said that they believe the government would only change their stance on the matter if the masses spoke up as the animals could not speak for themselves.

“Educating the general public is the key. We will first be the change then spread the truth and educate and then slowly but surely the masses.

“All of us together can only impact and make a change for the better,” stated Rajkumar.
