Dolphins Are Used To Having The Whole Ocean To

Dolphins are used to having the whole ocean to explore – but the reality for many captive dolphins is like the above picture. These three dolphins live in a small pool in Japan.

“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.”
