causing both mental
and physical suffering.
In Japan we also have some aquariums where many dolphins that were
captured in the wild are forced to perform. we think that it is
a shameful industry.
We are making an appeal that we should enjoy watching dolphins
when they come close to us by their own choice instead of capturing
wild animals to see or pet.
Moreover, we are also appealing to Japanese tourists not to visit
your facility just for enjoyment. The conservation and research
value of keeping these dolphins in captivity is doubtful. Research
conducted on dolphins in captivity does not have the potential
to improve the conservation of wild dolphins as the lives of captive
animals are artificial.
We would like to request that Underwater World Singapore do the
·End the use of dolphins in animal shows at Dolphin Lagoon.
·End the petting and Swim-with-Dolphin sessions at Dolphin Lagoon.
·Stop further imports of dolphins to Dolphin Lagoon.
·Start research on the rehabilitation of the Indo-Pacific hump-backed
dolphins and eventually release the Indo-Pacific hump-backed dolphins
at Dolphin Lagoon back into the wild.
above policies will
