Miami Seaquarium

#TakeAction

The recent documentaries Blackfish, The Cove and Blood Dolphins show that putting dolphins and orcas in captivity is unethical and cruel, ripping them from their families that they would normally grow up with and depriving them of the freedom of the open ocean, instead confining them to small concrete tanks to do tricks for dead fish.
