Wild dolphins swim in pods all over the world’s oceans, including those that surround Anguilla. They are highly social creatures and are considered by many to be one of the most intelligent animals on Earth. Research has shown that they display culture and learned behavior. Hundreds of thousands of tourists and locals have seen these amazing and beautiful creatures playing in our blue waters, enjoying their freedom and thriving in their natural environment. But now... they need your help. Dolphinariums are unnatural environments for dolphins. The dolphins are violently removed from their families, with no hope of ever being reunited with their pods. The dolphins are then forced to endure amputated lives not being able to swim the normal 40 miles that they do a day. They can not socialize with other dolphins and many of the dolphins do not survive their violent capture! These dolphins are suffering and dying, just to amuse humans for financial gain

To reconsider the keeping of Dolphins in Captivity for Human Enjoyment.
