Greek Green Party has expressed concern about the continued public display of captive dolphins at Attica Zoo

2011-09-23 Greek Dolphinarium Case In Doubt In a press release issued this week, the Greek Green Party has expressed concern about the continued public display, including in shows, of captive dolphins at the Attica Zoological Park. Although the case brought against the zoo’s illegal construction of a dolphinarium without planning permission and the illegal import of dolphins from Lithuania was recently heard in court, the court concluded that it was not competent to judge the case. The Green Party has expressed strong opposition to the dolphinarium at Attica Zoo and has criticised the Greek government for not acting to address its illegal operation. This is in spite of a bill being introduced banning animal performances in circuses. Read the full story Find out more about WDCSs EU Dolphinarium campaign.
