2019 Sustainable Action Network (SAN)

In an encouraging development at the recent UN Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals, 120 nations signed a resolution which states they will consider banning the capture of dolphins and whales from the wild for display in zoos and aquaria. Despite saying they no longer capture wild cetaceans, a Seaworld spokesperson said that they would oppose the progressive resolution for a number of reasons, including that it does not recognise the “significant educational and scientific benefits of marine mammal displays”.

Whether snatched from the wild or born in captivity, being made to perform tricks is no life for whales and dolphins. Enjoy them where they belong, in the wild.
