Despite legislation that prohibits the killing of dolphins and whales, small cetaceans are still caught in Lombok, Indonesia. Though some are eaten, many of these dolphins end up back on the hook, as bait for sharks.Lombok, Indonesia now has an international airport, more and more tourists will head to the Island paradise, but killing of dolphins has to become something of the past.A quote by Mahatma Gandhi came to mind; “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated”.I hope that Indonesia can make the changes that desperately need to be made to protect the dolphins of our oceans.
