This is a question I’m asked very frequently one week of every month.
I go to a local lobster resturant where there are live lobsters in tanks. I buy one or two of them live and let them go in their natural habitat. Does any one else dom this? is it really helping?
That’s awesome that you want to help them, but like @hakred says, by buying them you’re still financially supporting the store and the demand for lobsters. The lobsters you buy will quickly get replaced with new lobsters.
The best way to help these lobsters is by petitioning the store to get rid of them and by informing others about why they shouldn’t buy or eat lobsters anymore. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info on how you can help.
I personally can see the good intentions in this but I also see the downfall. You’re buying, and they don’t care what you do with the animals so long as they get your money. Demand goes up and so does the supply. I find it better to donate my money to an organization like PETA to help animals rather than giving it to businesses who hurt them.
I personally, don’t do this because it simply hasn’t occurred to me. However, this is brilliant, I may start doing something like this. What a great idea. Yes, in my opinion, it is helping because you are letting them go and be free.
