Vegan Advocate Lewis Hamilton Says It’s “Time We Empty The Tanks”

by | May 11, 2020

Vegan racing driver Lewis Hamilton is asking his fans to support the release of cetaceans kept in captivity.

In a story broken by Plant Based News, the Formula One star shared a post from the Dolphin Project as an Instagram story stating, “Your captivity is temporary. Theirs isn’t” — a comparison to the current coronavirus lockdown measures.

“Empty The Tanks”

“Join me in giving voice to the captive cetaceans” Hamilton wrote in the post.

“It’s time we empty the tanks.”

The Dolphin Project is a non-profit organization working to promote the welfare of dolphins, and to encourage their release back into the wild.
