“I am currently living in Japan and I have been to quite a few aquariums here. The conditions in which they keep their animals is deplorable. I recently went to Ise’s Futami Sea Paradise and the conditions they keep their animals in is deplorable. They have 3 dolphins are in a pool smaller than any backyard pool I’ve ever seen and they looked so sad and depressed. If there is anything you can do to get them rescued please do it. I felt so helpless seeing them there.”
