The majority of dolphins in captivity come from Taiji, Japan where they are ripped away from all that they know and forced to live in artificial families. Dolphins in captivity swim endlessly in circles and fed dead fish as a reward for a performance or trick. Please urge the member secretary of the the Central Zoo Authority in India to say NO to dolphins in captivity. Dolphins belong in the Ocean with their families, not in a concrete tank.
