The Indiana Animal Rights Alliance supports The National Aquarium in their decision to move dolphins to a sanctuary by 2020. The evidence against keeping marine live in captivity is growing each year. We learn more about the ways captivity harms marine life, and the lack of educational value of zoos and aquariums. Dolphin captivity also directly feeds into the mass slaughter of dolphins each year in Taiji.
We hope that the Indy Zoo here in Indiana can learn from The National Aquarium and stop supporting dolphin captivity. The conservation of wild animals is much more important that holding them captive for entertainment.
