Dolphinactive is against the keeping of cetaceans in captivity especially for human entertainment.
We believe that no dolphinarium can provide cetaceans with the habitat, social connections and lifestyle that would make captivity anything but inherently cruel.
We believe that humans learn nothing about the animals from these shows and interactions and there is no evidence that displays benefit the wild populations where threats are plentiful. It would be more constructive for ocean animals if the public's time, resources and attention was spent on preserving, protecting and conserving the natural environment so that wild populations can live freely and safely.
We believe that captivity should be phased out and no dolphin should endure this practice in the future.
