The subject of captive dolphins is always something that causes great debate. On one hand people can learn from seeing them up close and getting the dolphins story and on the other hand, captive dolphins live for up to 50 years which is a long time to be in an aquarium or a Marine theme park.
I suppose it is up to every individual to decide what they would like for these intelligent creatures and to let their views be known to various organisations that would like to protect these animals.
At the moment NGO, World Animal Protection is calling on the Queensland Government to ban captive dolphins breeding.
What do you think about this issue?
