When you visit a dolphinarium, such as the 'Seas with Nemo and Friends' pavilion at Disney's Epcot park, it's hard to see the problem: music is blaring, children are screaming and laughing and smiling, seemingly 'happy' dolphins are swimming around inside of the tank interacting with the trainer on the other side of the glass.

Free the Disney Dolphins: about the dolphins

Huit autres établissements se sont refusés à tout commentaire de crainte de «réactions négatives», ajouté le journal. Les pêcheurs de Taïji chassent chaque saison des centaines de dauphins qu'ils rassemblent dans un corral où ils sont dépecés pour leur viande, une activité traditionnelle fustigée par les associations de défense des animaux. Mais, selon ces derniers, comme la demande pour la chair de dauphin est insuffisante, les pêcheurs revendent à des prix très élevés des cétacés vivants à des delphinariums. C'est le cas pour près de la moitié des dauphins - 158 dauphins sur 352 - présentés dans les 33 delphinariums du pays, selon le Yomiuri Shimbun.

The Dolphin Trainer Who Loved Dolphins Too Much

Tim Zimmermann | Longreads | April 2015 | 25 minutes (6,193 words) Panama City Beach, Florida is set on the alluring waters of the Gulf Of Mexico, in northwestern Florida. It’s a town of cookie-cutter condos and sprawling outlet malls, built almost entirely on the idea that blazing sun, a cool sea, white sand beaches, and copious amounts of booze are an irresistible formula for human happiness (or at least a pretty damn good time). Everything about the place—from the ubiquitous fast food, to the endless chain stores, to the Brobdingnagian miniature golf courses—is designed to anticipate and then slake the vast and relentless array of human desires.

What you probably haven’t heard of is dolphins being featured as the main act. As hard as it is to believe, dolphin traveling circuses are a big hit in Indonesia. There are three separate companies running these inhumane operations, much to the delight of the uninformed spectators who pay pennies each to see the dolphins perform. There are 72 dolphins currently enslaved in Indonesia illegally, many of which are in captivity in these three traveling circuses. The Ric O'Barry Dolphin Project staff have been working closely with the Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN) to lobby the Indonesian government to release the dolphins, many of whom were illegally poached from their ocean homes.

In the fishing town of Coffs Harbour on the east coast of Australia there is a marine park called Dolphin Marine Magic. In the marine park there is a small pool, and in that pool is Bucky. Although he is in remission from cancer and one of the oldest dolphins in captivity, Bucky performs two shows a day, 365 days a year.

He tail walks across the water on demand and performs flips and elaborate tricks in return for frozen fish. Members of the public line up to brush his teeth, pat his belly, and 'ride' Bucky around the pool. Bucky shares his crowded tank with five other dolphins, four of which he is the father.
