Tell Singapore Not to Import Live Dolphins

The Solomon Islands banned live dolphin trade in 2003 after a public outcry when dolphins were shipped to Mexico, but unfortunately the export prohibition was later lifted when a new government came to power. The Solomons permitted the transport of 28 dolphins to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in October 2007 and is now considering allowing another 18 to go to Singapore, where a theme park partly owned by Universal Studios is being built for a 2010 opening.

TAKE ACTION
Please fill out the form on this page to automatically send a message to the Prime Minister of Singapore, Minister Lee Hsien Loong, urging him to prohibit the import of live dolphins into Singapore for use as tourist attractions. Be sure to personalize the subject line and text with your own words so that your email will stand out and have a greater impact. 

The dead dolphins found in a Solomon Islands garbage dump in October 2007 are a reminder of the horrible consequences of live dolphin trafficking. By giving the Solomons a market for the dolphin trade, Singapore will be contributing to the mistreatment of these animals. Don't let 18 more innocent dolphins become victims—please contact Prime Minister Lee today!

      Dolphins are beautiful caring and self aware non human beings. This treatment of them is wrong. We as a planet cry out against such treatment of human and we should start to see that we are not the only self aware animal on this planet.

      Scientists have recently determined that dolphins are such intelligent creatures that they should be considered "nonhuman persons" and treated as such.

      I think that it is absolutely awful that dolphins have to put up with being torn away from their natural habitat and taken some place to be used for entertainment! SAVE THE DOLPHINS!
