1977- Animal Rights Hawaiʻi was founded after meeting Peter Singer, author of “Animal Liberation.” This was the year that Ken Levasseur and Steve Sipman freed Puka and Kea, two dolphins at Kewalo Basin Marine Mammal Laboratory. Following the dolphin release that is considered to be the beginning of the modern animal liberation movement, Animal Rights Hawaii got involved obtaining facility records and reporting violations by the laboratory. We continue to fight captivity of marine mammals.
