Thank MasterCard for Ending Endorsement of Animal Captivity

Atlantic Spotted Dolphin - Stenella Plagiodon

Target: Ajaypal Singh Banga, CEO of MasterCard

Goal: Thank MasterCard for ending its promotion and endorsement of the swimming with dolphins program.

MasterCard was recently promoting and offering its customers a chance to swim with dolphins. Thankfully, after being informed of the hardships dolphins face in captivity, the popular credit card company dropped its endorsement in just a day.

Dolphins in captivity typically develop many mental and physical problems including sores, neurotic behavior and shortened life spans. In addition, the constant human interaction can be very detrimental to these animals.

Thankfully, MasterCard made the compassionate decision to end its support and endorsement of the swimming with dolphins program. In addition, MasterCard vowed to never support any animal captivity programs in the future. Sign this petition and thank MasterCard for making such a swift, humane decision.


Dear Mr. Banga,

Recently, your company was promoting and endorsing a swimming with dolphins program. Upon hearing of the atrocities captive dolphins face daily, you made the swift decision to end your endorsement of the program.

Thank you for making the compassionate decision and for doing so without hesitation. It is heartwarming to see companies like yours make decisions that help make the world a kinder place.

In addition to ending your endorsement of the swimming with dolphins program, you also announced that you will never support any type of animal captivity program in the future. Again, thank you for this decision and for being a voice for animals. Hopefully more companies follow in your footsteps.

  1. I’m happy I didn’t have to get a different credit card which I would of done. We don’t have the right to hold animals in captivity ever unless to give them a better and safer live. But never for profit! Thank-you for doing the right thing!
