4 July 2020 – speaking out against dolphins in captivity

Dolphinaria-Free Europe believes that wild animals should not be exploited or held confined for human entertainment.

Today on World Day For Captive Dolphins, we pledge to continue our work throughout Europe to:

  • speak out against new facilities being established
  • phase out the keeping of cetaceans for public display
  • end the breeding of these mammals in captivity
  • work towards the establishment of sanctuaries where ex-captive dolphins (and whales) can be retired to, living our as natural a life as possible without human intervention or being forced to perform.
