Dolphin Project has been working since Earth Day 1970 to end the billion dollar dolphin captivity industry. Dolphins have evolved for over 50 million years, and, despite being oxygen-breathing mammals, have adapted perfectly to life at sea. They have large, complex brains, are self-aware and develop close relationships with family and other pod members. Everything we have learned from them tells us they don’t belong in concrete tanks, performing tricks for our amusement.
Ceta-Base is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to compiling the most extensive global record of whales, dolphins, porpoises and other marine mammals under human care. It is our goal to provide current and historical documentation on captive marine mammals while maintaining this data in an easily accessible format for the general public, scientists, advocacy groups and interested individuals.
