Say NO to Captive Dolphins in Arizona!

Submitted by Karen Michael on 04/23/2016 - 6:18pm

ADLA and other groups are working on a campaign opposing Dolphinaris, a swim-with-dolphins enclosure under development in Scottsdale. The facility will house eight or more dolphins and is set to open in July. As opposed to their natural wide-range ocean habitat, these intelligent, social marine mammals will be forced to live out their lives in chlorinated concrete tanks in the desert. Dolphinaris has demonstrated a lack of transparency by secretly building a captive dolphin enclosure with no opportunity for public input, despite growing public opposition to confinement of dolphins for entertainment. Please add your name to this petition and share. We will keep you updated on this important campaign and how you can help.
