Heather took part in a march for dolphins' rights and the preservation of natural environment in Bermuda


According to newspaper articles, Heather took part in a march in Hamilton, Bermuda, demonstrating against the plan to build a new dolphin park there.

The march was already on Friday, March 18th, see the original article written in the Bermuda Sun edited that day:

"Opponents of the plan to build a dolphin park at the former Sonesta Beach Hotel are taking to the streets today. Bermudian singer Heather Nova, pictured left, is lending her support to environmentalists’ cause. She will be taking part in the march through the streets of Hamilton."

One day later on Saturday, March 19th, there was an article about this demonstration in The Royal Gazette:

"Despite the drizzle and traffic chaos caused by Police road closures, more than 40 demonstrators marched on Cabinet yesterday afternoon to protest the possible dredging of Sinky Bay, Southampton to accommodate a new dolphin park. ... Singer/songwriter Heather Nova pushed her baby-pram down the middle of the road as the marchers took over Reid Street. ... Ms Nova told The Royal Gazette she was protesting the dolphin park for two reasons. "First, I don't believe in keeping wild animals in captivity for entertainment or profit," she said. "Second, it is important to preserve the natural natural environment by not dredging Sinky Bay."
