Information

Boycott Dolphin and Marine Parks

There are 200 dolphinariums around the world. There is about as much educational benefit to be gained in studying dolphins in captivity as there would be studying mankind by only observing prisoners held in solitary confinement.

I saw a film called "The Cove" a few weeks ago. It was about the capture of dolphins for use in dolphinaria and the use of "extra" or rejected dolphins for meat on the Japanese market. Turns out that dolphin meat contains mercury at about 50 times the legal limit so it was being given away to children (???) or sold as whale meat.
Jim Clark, who had started the first dolphinaria in Florida before he became disillisioned with the capture of dolphins for financial gain (he starred in the series "Flipper"), was one of the main characters in the film. Happy ending - they convinced the Japanese government to ban the capture and massacre of dolphins in the town of Taiji in Japan.
There's a good link at http://www.thecovemovie.com/
