Clacton Pier: a childhood memory, now a nightmare.

We were going through some old photographs today and found this in one of our family albums. This was Clacton Pier some time around the 1980s. There’s an entire website celebrating the history of this hell hole, including the story of three killer whales that were imprisoned here over the 10 years.

I’m proud to say that there are no cetaceans in captivity in the UK. Our last dolphinarium closed in 1993. How far we have come in just over a decade. Now let’s hope the rest of the world catch up 🐬💙

Enough. #emptythetanks
