Turkish stars speak out against dolphin captivity

Founded by Turkish actresses Özge Özder, Aslı Tandoğan and Ayça Varlıer, and supported by many member celebrities, "Bana Göz Kulak Ol" Association (BGKO) in Turkey prepared its first public awareness film, together with PToT Filmes, to stand up to animal captivity: "Benim Bir Dostum Var" (meaning "I Have A Friend" in Turkish), which can be watched both on YouTube and Vimeo
January 2014 - The PSA, adopted from the Oceanic Preservation Society's 2010 "My PSA and released with English subtitles, aims to start another strong campaign in Turkey against dolphinariums and entertainment industry, in general -where all other animals are exploited to death. 
In the two-minute PSA, the celebrities voiced their support for the recent public campaigns against the Taiji dolphin massacre in January 2014. The timing of the video also deliberately coincided with the semester holiday of the school children in order to call out to families not to take their children to dolphinariums and other shows that use animals. The BGKO anti-captivity campaign will continue for a long time to extend to other types of animal abuse and captivity in the future. 
The artists who took part in the PSA are as follows (in alphabetical order): Alican Yücesoy, Aslı Tandoğan, Bennu Yıldırımlar, Binnur Kaya, Ceyda Düvenci, Demet Evgar, Kenan Ece, Levent Üzümcü, Mert Fırat, Özge Özder, Özgün, Özgür Çevik, Selim Bayraktar, Selin Demiratar, Serkan Altunorak and Yasemin Allen.
BGKO also effectively supported the campaigns of Freedom for Dolphins Platform (Yunuslara Özgürlük Platformu) in Turkey in 2012, especially by collecting signatures from Turkish celebrities and in the meantime, took active role to raise public awareness during the closure of Kas Dolphin Park in Antalya. 
The campaign can be followed at twitter/, facebook/ and, in addition to Freedom for Dolphins Platform's (Yunuslara Özgürlük Platformu) social media accounts: and

Social media propagation is very high too; with only one example from The video is shared 13K times only on this page. We could not follow all other pages and blogs that have uploaded and shared the video. 
Regarding newspapers and online news sites, the press release was published not only on local newspapers, but also used by highly read newspapers, such as: 
The numbers we mention here are only important and valuable for their ability to circulate the truth behind captivity industry's lies. So taking these stats into account, we can say, with great hope, that our anti-captivity message has reached millions of people in Turkey and abroad in order to make a tangible change in their actions and perspectives about our treatment to all animals. 
Right now, there are nine dolphinariums in Turkey. Two closed (Fethiye-Hisarönü in 2010, and Kas Dolphin Park in 2013). Turkish dolphinariums have trade relation with Taiji drive hunters (12 dolphins were imported from Taiji in 2008. Despite all official correspondences, their fate is unknown). 
Maybe it's the right time to quote Jim Morrisson, The Doors, with lyrics from "5 to 1": "They got the guns but we got the numbers"!
