Dolphins in captivity have nothing to smile about
Up to 50 years in captivity is no life at all for intelligent, social dolphins. They often look like they are smiling, but this is just the shape of their face.
Expedia Group wants you to think that dolphins in captivity are happy.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. In the wild, they roam 100 kilometres a day and dive deeply. Captive dolphins spend a lifetime in small, barren, often chlorinated tanks. It’s a life of boredom and confinement.
An industry based on lies
The multi-billion dollar captive dolphin industry wants you to think dolphins enjoy their confinement. They rely on a quirk of nature – the shape of a dolphins’ face – and years of misinformation.
Captive dolphins are living miserable lives in the name of profit.
