I was so excited to be travelling to the UAE and was looking for hotels when I found out that the Palm Atlantis Hotel captured a majestic whale shark ‘Sammy’ and has put her on display in thier aquarium. Can you believe it? There was even a government order for the shark to be freed and the hotel has still yet to respond. Having swam with whale sharks personally I cannot fathom the idea of forcing her to live out her life alone in a tank. Needless to say I was thankful to find this link at PETA where you can send a message to the hotel asking for her to be freed: http://action.petaasiapacific.com/ea-campaign/clientcampaign.do?ea.client.id=110&ea.campaign.id=2588&ea.param.extras=ea_source_code:papadvsspro.
I will certainly be crossing the Palm Atlantis Hotel off my list of hotels to visit until they free Sammy.
