Last year a NSW inquiry report on the use of captive cetaceans for entertainment confirmed that dolphinariums are a dying business model, making recommendations that the NSW Government end the breeding of dolphins for commercial purposes, and to provide assistance for the feasibility of a sea sanctuary to retire the three remaining dolphins in captive entertainment in NSW.
Join us in calling on the Government to accept the report recommendations and make dolphin ‘abuse-ment parks’ a thing of the past.
No animal should have to spend their life being held captive and forced to perform humiliating tricks for a dwindling number of spectators.
Recently there have been bans on the use of cetaceans for entertainment in Canada and France – it’s time for NSW to step up and protect these animals. It’s time to empty the tanks.
By signing the petition below, you’ll be telling the NSW Government to take action and end the use of cetaceans in entertainment.
