← Dolphin Bubbles: An Amazing Behavior

I'm sorry but most of the dolphins in dolphinariums are caught in Taiji Japan. The ones in US aquariums are not, at least that's what we are told. And anyone who has been paying attention to the news knows what happens to dolphins that don't get picked to perform in The Cove.

More information in this article, including dangerous levels of mercury in dolphin meat sold as whale meat:

If anyone is interested you can sign a petition to stop the slaughter here:
