At Ripley's Aquarium of Canada in Toronto, customers are allowed to touch animals at the Discovery Centre. Ripley's calls the exhibit "Touch Tanks."
This causes stress on animals, which already do not live in their natural habitat.
Sharks, stingrays and other fish are included in the exhibit, and spend their days being poked and prodded by visitors -- it's no way for animals to live.
Please sign the petition to tell Ripley's to remove this attraction, and be compassionate to animals.
Update:Check out my interview with CTV, Canada's largest news network, about this petition here>. Thanks to everyone who signed, please keep sharing with your friends!
Mr. Pattison Sr. & Pattison Jr.,
We the undersigned urge you to please take action against allowing customers to pet animals on a daily basis at Toronto Ripley's Aquarium.
