Animal welfare and charity NGO ACRES are holding a concert in the park to raise awareness, and to show solidarity with the 25 wild dolphins which Resorts World Sentosa have continued to keep in their premises for entertainment purposes. They have continued to turn a deaf ear despite the pleas of Singaporeans and international organizations to do the right thing and release the dolphins.
The concert will include performances by several prominent bands and musicians -- JACK AND RAI, SIXX, D'FUSION, ZAL EMPTY, ALICIA PAN, and MICHAELA THERESE, who will be donating their precious time and talent for the dolphins' benefit.
The gathering will result in the formation of the shape of a giant dolphin for the cameras, and everyone is encouraged to sing "Please let the dolphins go" together, in one loud voice.
We must not let RWS, or any corporation in the future, get the idea that they can simply get away with abduction and exploitation of wild animals for profit.

The event is free of charge.
**Please wear the ACRES black campaign t-shirt which explicitly says, "Resorts World, please let the dolphins go". You can pick them up at the concert for $20. However, ACRES understands that not everyone can buy a t-shirt, so just come in a black top otherwise!
