Concert pushes for release of dolphins

my paper AsiaOne 29 Aug 11;

Close to 1,000 people turned up for a concert at the Speakers' Corner at Hong Lim Park yesterday in a show of support for the release of 25 dolphins belonging to Resorts World Sentosa.

The concert was organised by the Animal Concerns Research & Education Society in collaboration with Young NTUC.

The Sentosa integrated resort bought the dolphins between 2008 and 2009 and is currently housing them in Ocean Adventure Park in Subic Bay in the Philippines while awaiting the opening of its Marine Life Park here next year.

Those who attended the event also formed the shape of a giant leaping dolphin for an aerial photograph.

The crowd listened to speeches and songs by local acts at the event, organised by the Animal Concerns Research and Education Society with Young NTUC.
