Don’t get fooled by a smile
Dolphins in captivity have nothing to smile about
Dolphins are intelligent, wild animals. They belong in the wild, not bred in captivity for entertainment.
Up to 50 years in captivity is no life for a wild animal.
In their natural environment, dolphins swim freely in 100 square kilometres of ocean, sometimes more, but the average dolphin in captivity has a space a fraction of that space!
They often look like they are smiling, but this is just the shape of their face.
Don’t be fooled by a smile.
Take our pledge to only see dolphins in the wild where they belong.
The tide is turning against the keeping of dolphins in captivity for entertainment.
Earlier this year, the Canadian Government passed a ban on keeping dolphins, whales and porpoises for entertainment. This is part of a global movement towards better treatment of these wild animals, which includes the nations of Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, India, Luxembourg, Norway, Switzerland, and the UK.
A life entertaining tourist is no life for a wild animal
You can end the exploitation of wild animals for entertainment and promise to not visit attractions that use wild animals for entertainment.
