Swimming with Dolphins: Green or Not? - Planet Green via @PlanetGreen

Swimming with Dolphins: Green or Not? - Planet Green via @PlanetGreen

As shown in the documentary "The Cove," dolphins that end up in SWTD programs are often caught under the most horrifying of circumstances. In Japan, tens of thousands of dolphins are rounded up into a small cove. Trainers come to pick out which dolphins they want for various aquatic centers. The dolphins are then rounded up as the other members of their pod are slaughtered. Not all capture techniques are so abusive, but they are all always traumatic for the dolphins, often causing a fatal condition known as capture stress or capture myopathy. According to the World Society for the Protection of Animals, of those dolphins that survive the capture and are brought into captivity, 53% will die within their first 3 months in a tank. Captive breeding programs , on the other hand, avoid the trauma of capture, but often do little to ensure that capture of wild dolphins ends.
