Dolphins in captivity are unable to thrive in the artificial environments provided by zoos, aquariums, and marine parks around the world. These intelligent and incredibly social individuals suffer greatly from capture to transport to a lifelong existence in tanks 200,000 times smaller than the size of their natural home range.

You have the power to change this. Join the Pod to take a stand for all dolphins in captivity.

We are World Animal Protection. We were known as WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals). Our vision is a world where animals live free from suffering.
