TWEETSTORM #EndFaroeGrind Trends Globally!


By Kirsten Massebeau

The #EndFaroeGrind Tweetstorm has been declared a success! The new campaign to bring global awareness to the Faroe Islands small cetacean slaughter called the grind (grindadráp) trended at number two on Twitter, a serious accomplishment. Today major media outlets recognize the power of Twitter and dolphin activists are successfully using the power of the Tweetstorm. #EndFaroeGrind Tweetstorm brought Stormers from all corners of the earth to speak up for cetaceans. Activists came out creating a loud voice for the 1534 small whales, and dolphins, that have died violent deaths in the shallow bays of the Faroe Islands. The meat has been deemed toxic, the pilot whale population numbers are data deficient, and the slaughter method is inhumane yet the grind continues. Is this tradition or an adrenaline rush is one of the many issues tweeted.

The beauty of the Tweetstorm is Storm organizers can evaluate their reach. Spreading awareness worldwide is the goal that can be analyzed later in order that Stormers can continue to increase their audience educating the world about the Faroe grind and other dolphin drives.

The Global Awareness #EndFaroeGrind team would like to thank dolphin Stormers worldwide. Our first Tweetstorm has proved to be a success, the numbers don’t lie. Remember we are the voice of dolphins and whale everywhere. Without our voice there is no hope. Stormers stay tuned to I Love Dolphins, Save the Blood Dolphins, Champions for Cetaceans, and Ocean Protectors for the next event.
