Dolphinaria-Free Europe (DFE) is a coalition whose members include eminent marine mammal scientists, animal welfare experts, conservationists, NGOs, individual members and advisors from around the globe.

We seek to phase out and ultimately eliminate the keeping of cetaceans in captivity in Europe, whilst striving towards greater protection for those still held captive, through investigation, advocacy and education. Members of the coalition share the position that wild animals should not be exploited for human entertainment.
