The more we learn about marine mammals, the more troubling it becomes to keep these complex, intelligent creatures in tanks and pens. It’s time to see the situation from the animals’ point of view and reconsider whether it's right to confine them for our amusement.

Dolphins are long-lived, wide-ranging predators who are self-aware and capable of abstract thinking. When captured from the wild for public display, they are removed violently and traumatically from their social units. Japan's drive fishery is particularly cruel.

HSI is working with governments, media, local activists, and the general public to change the perception of captive marine mammals. You can help: Don't swim with dolphins, and think twice before attending a marine mammal show.
