The last surviving cetacean in the USA to come from a Japanese drive fishery has been living in a shallow and isolated tub in violation of multiple standards of the Animal Welfare Act. She's been in these conditions, behind the scenes of a marine park in Hawaii, since August of 2015.
This week we decided to feature the dolphinarium called Delfinia, located in Novosibirsk. It is a relatively new dolphinarium, opened just over two years ago, that provides multiple ways to interact with their Taiji-acquired dolphins from shows, Swim-With-Dolphin programs, and the very controversial "dolphin assisted therapy".
There are multiple ways you can take part in aiding this situation without even having to leave your home. Despite the downfalls of social media, it's hard to argue that it hasn't provided an incredible resource for animal activists. Read on for a few tips and tricks on how to spread the word to potential Delfinia visitors about the reality behind this facility and industry!
