"One of the issues the Orca face is that they are such remarkable animals, and because of that, people want to see them up close and personal. So there are other people who want to make a profit from that. They capture the Orca from the wild, rip them out of their families, and they dump them into these concrete tanks, and make them perform tricks. People pay to go and see that, they’re brainwashed into thinking that this is a really good thing to see and a good thing to do, that it’s family entertainment. They just don’t seem to realize how much these animals suffer. So one of the things that I’m trying to do now is help educate the public, and help make the public realize that this is not acceptable anymore. This is something that should be part of our history, not something that should be part of our future. We really, as individuals, need to make that effort, and every one of us can by saying that we will not buy a ticket to any place that keeps a whale or dolphin in captivity."

Are there tanks that give dolphins enough space? Are some marine parks “better” than others?

Any tank or enclosure is too small for a dolphin. According to US regulations, dolphin pens only need to be 24 x 24 feet and only six feet deep.  In warm weather such shallow water heats quickly. This can be extremely uncomfortable, and often deadly, for dolphins unable to escape to deeper, cooler waters. Not only is there no relief from the heat, but also the dolphin’s sensitive skin can be exposed to the sun’s scorching rays, causing blisters and sores. Also, in cement pools chlorine is added to keep bacteria levels safe for humans. The levels of chlorine used wreak havoc on a dolphin’s skin and eyes, sometimes even rendering them completely blind.  Just because standards exist doesn’t mean that they’re appropriate, well-enforced, or acceptable. No captive facility, no matter how much space it provides, how well intentioned it is, or how hard it tries, can adequately provide for a dolphin’s complex needs.
