This is arguably the smallest tank in the world .They are Pan-tropical spotted Dolphins, there are two of them residing in the Taiji Whale Museum (originally there were 3 of them). They were captured in Taiji. There are pictures of the captures on the walls of the Museum.

He states, "They are inside this tiny little building for public display. Its a public disgrace that is what this is. We don't see the Dolphins yet, the water is quite cloudy. " He continues to state, "They are showing symptoms of C.D.D.S. [Captive Dolphin Depression Syndrome]. They stay in that corner and will lay with their head against the wall. Lolita does that in the Miami Seaquarium. We need the World Associations of Zoo and Aquarium to take action once and for all.
This is the smallest Dolphin tank in the world. "
Won't you please help us? Please sign the petition and ask the Taiji Whale Museum to move these dolphins to a larger location close by. This used to be an Otter Exhibit. This is not a place for Dolphins.
