12. Aug. 2017 — Dolphin show by Wersut Seguni Indonesia Corp. Two dolphins were being made to entertain (not educate) visitors, by performing tricks in what can only be described as a tiny pool full of chlorinated water.
Imagine: Dolphins, born and adapted to swim freely in limitless, chlorine-free oceans; forced instead to swim endlessly in circles in this pool until one day, they die

The Capital One Orange Bowl is an annual college football game in Miami that continues to promote the Miami Seaquarium by having a dolphin „choose“ the game’s winner. If given the chance, dolphins would choose freedom, and when it comes to the Miami Seaquarium, there are only losers.
For more than 46 years, the park has confined an orca name Lolita—aka „the World’s Loneliest Orca“—to what is currently the smallest and oldest orca tank in the U.S. She was abducted from her family in the wild when she was about 4 years old and hasn’t seen another orca since 1980, when her tankmate, Hugo, repeatedly rammed his head into the tank wall until he died.

Incredibly sad sight in harbor. Two dolphin trying to revive a dead one. I didn’t see any boat marks but had some skin peeled back. The other two were not giving up. If reincarnation is true, I so want to come back as a dolphin. They are God’s greatest creation.

In one of the most heartbreaking videos of 2017,
you can see what appears to be two dolphin friends working together to attempt to revive or help another dolphin, who was found dead.
This video helps to give some insight into how extremely intelligent and complex dolphins actually are.
Dolphins communicate with each other through distinct whistles and body language, they live together in pods, and they even pass on their own family histories.
While dolphins in the wild swim vast distances every day with their extended families, playing and exploring new territory together, SeaWorld confines them to tiny tanks, and they see very little each day other than the same dreary concrete walls.Dolphins navigate by echolocation, but in pools, the reverberations from their own sonar just bounce off the walls.
SeaWorld exploits dolphins’ intelligence by forcing them to learn and perform cheap tricks, which have proved harmful and even fatal to the animals. More than 300 and, not including orcas, have died on SeaWorld’s watch, many of them prematurely.

J.R. Waits, the person who posted the video, later posted an update saying that “from NOAA states the adult female dolphin that I found in Charleston Harbor appears to have died from being caught in a rope (human interaction).”
What You Can Do
Keep your distance if you see dolphins in the wild, never go to SeaWorld, and urge your friends to stay away, too. Demand that the theme park release the animals held captive there to sea sanctuaries.
The San Diego Bowl Game Association continues to partner with SeaWorld by promoting the abusement park during its Holiday Bowl and Poinsettia Bowl, with advertising on its website, and by hosting team trips to SeaWorld—despite hearing from PETA that 37 orcas have died and that the orcas and other marine animals imprisoned there exhibit abnormal aggressive and repetitive behavior because of their confinement.
Following the release of Blackfish, which exposed the park’s abuse of animals to the public, SeaWorld laid off more than 300 employees, its stock dropped more than 50 percent, and its attendance plummeted. In a little more than a year, six high-ranking executives, including its CEO, have resigned, and the company has admitted to corporate espionage.
Three more whales died in just six months in 2015—all far short of their natural life expectancies—and Tilikum, the orca who was the subject of Blackfish, is reportedly near death.
As a result of the backlash, SeaWorld announced an end to its sordid orca breeding program. While an end to captive orca breeding is a good first step, it’s not enough. SeaWorld continues to confine orcas to tiny concrete tanks and refuses to build coastal sanctuaries where these animals could enjoy some semblance of a natural life.
Please tell the San Diego Bowl Game Association that there is nothing sporting about confining orcas and other marine animals to tiny concrete tanks! Then follow up by calling 619-285-5061 and letting the association know that a good sportsperson would never promote animal abuse.
