Trapped marine mammals are sad caricatures of the real thing. Please do not subject more creatures to pain and suffering for the sole purpose of public amusement.
We request a fully comprehensive list of information pertaining to the captive dolphins covering the last decade be made available for the public viewing.(i.e. DOB, Causes of death, dates, parentage, wild- caught, captive bred) (3 years and still waiting)
Our community members, young and old, are interested in working out a solution for this age old dolphin exhibit that lacks any substantial educational value and sits uncomfortably with more and more ticket payers.
We would like to see birth control implemented and captive breeding of cetaceans phased out. No dolphin deserves imprisonment, the public cannot unsee what has become apparent(abuse and suffering). Dolphins belong in the ocean, not in minuscule concrete holes. This is indeed common sense and as we are in 2015, it's time to step up to the plate and accept responsibility for the needless pain, suffering and deaths of innocent creatures.
We feel that perhaps more effort, focus and attention should be applied to our local marine mammal mortality issue, with an emphasis rescue, rehabilitation and re-introduction.
As a first class city, we feel Ocean Park, HK should consider re-evaluating their ethical integrity and accountability in regards to the confinement of dolphins for entertainment purposes and breeding.
