Captivity Industry

Dolphin Project has been working since Earth Day 1970 to end the billion dollar dolphin captivity industry. Dolphins have evolved for over 50 million years, and, despite being oxygen-breathing mammals, have adapted perfectly to life at sea. They have large, complex brains, are self-aware and develop close relationships with family and other pod members. Everything we have learned from them tells us they don’t belong in concrete tanks, performing tricks for our amusement.

Dolphin shows are as educational about dolphins as Mickey Mouse is about real mice.” ~ Ric O’Barry, Founder/Director of Dolphin Project
