Hello,


My name is Phil Demers and I am 1 of 3 former Marineland employees who are being sued for having spoken out against the poor treatment of animals at the park. Consequently, we need to raise enough funds to ensure that the plight of the park's animals doesn't go silent, and that other whistle blowers (such as ourselves) do not become silenced by lawsuits of this nature.

This campaign is to help retain a lawyer for former animal care supervisor Jim Hammond, who bravely spoke of his personal experiences at Marineland.
Here are 2 links to video's of his experiences.

Please help us help Marineland's animals.

Be their voice.
