World Day for Captive Dolphins

Today, 4th July, is the World Day for Captive Dolphins. I strongly believe that dolphins do not belong in captivity and, despite efforts by some dolphinaria to improve conditions for the animals they exhibit, in my opinion their welfare is severely compromised. Innovative projects such as the WDC and Sea Life Trust Beluga Sanctuary, which will rehome two captive belugas to a sanctuary in Iceland, give me hope that captive cetaceans will not have to live out the rest of their lives in swimming pools.
