About

Fins and Fluke is an all-volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to educating local communities about Ocean Conservation. Our team is spread throughout the US and is 100% committed to saving marine life. We are serious about presenting accurate and confirmed reliable information. Each member of the team remains loyal to one or more specific cause and are responsible for information pertaining to this. We share petitions, articles, local events and simple “actions” that we believe will aid us positively in our cause. We also use social media and the power of our ocean-loving community to create successful campaigns.

Fins and Fluke has achieved several victories in its short life and has worked with many other reputable and successful organizations and individuals. We are extremely proud of their hard work in the movement to end cetacean captivity. Members of our team have used social media to help FIAPO, a group in India, in their campaign to ban captive dolphins, whales and dolphinariums. Fins and Fluke has also been a huge voice in the fight against Marineland, Canada – a facility noted to be one of the worst in North America, in terms of marine-mammal captivity. We have been named an instrumental power in the campaign against Morro bay aquarium, a deplorable Seal facility in California. We are also working on several projects in Florida to preserve the damaged ecosystems and wild marine life. Fins and Fluke is dedicated to aiding other organizations and individuals in this movement and are happy to lend a hand!

    Hi Fins and Fluke!

    I just found this organization through a takepart.com’s feature on “6 Ways You Can Help Save Captive Killer Whales Right Now”. I feel like you may be able to help me.

    I’m a recent college graduate with a degree in International Studies, and it was my lifelong dream to be a dolphin trainer until two years ago when I finally brought myself to watch “The Cove”. I then changed my goal to wanting to protect marine mammals in their natural habitats. The problem is that my degree is not in biology, marine sciences, or the like. I don’t have research experience.

    I’ve been searching for jobs that are more hands-on than an office job but most require an advanced degree in science or high level of skill learned in a lab. Any ideas, resources, contacts would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks for all the work you’re doing.

    All my best,

    Sarah

    I signed your change.org petition caling on Sea World to end its captive breeding program. I am disappointed that the petition has only 6,200 signatures. I am spreading the word. Why don’t you have a prominent link to this petition on this site?
