"The Humane Society International and the World Society for the Protection of Animals have stated that they believe that "the entire captive experience for marine mammals is so sterile and contrary to even the most basic elements of compassion and humanity that it should be rejected outright."

Criminal Investigation by Dept of Justice is a Big Can of Worms for SeaWorld

[voiceoftheorcas.blogspot.com]

And just imagine.. All this awareness has come to the forefront because of a small documentary on BLACKFISH, Tilikum and the portrayal of his incredibly stressful life in captivity and the resulting deaths attributed to him because of it.

Not fake news, BTW.

In a recent Daily News article on Coral World's recovery it was mentioned they planned on opening a Dolphin Encounter later this year.

I was unaware that the ACE permit had gone through.

Dolphin hunts, their slaughter and captive selections are ongoing in Taiji, Japan, right now!

This is what St. Thomas, U.S., Virgin Islands very own Coral World is supporting. They plan on opening the Dolphin Encounter in Water Bay where Magraritaville is located.

This bay already regularly tests positive for high levels of enterococi bacteria and regularly deemed unsafe for swimming, yet this is where these captive dolphins will live, perform on demand, for the sake of greed and the entertainment of the unenlightened and ignorant!

A friend said, "Once they get hit with a multi million dollar lawsuit by a guest with a rare infection allegedly caused by transmission from polluted water, that might get their attention."

"Human evolution seems to be taking a downward spiral with a domino effect of the impossibility of animals to survive and thrive on this planet which we share."

DONT BUY A TICKET to any place that supports these heinous activities. Encourage ALL your family members and friends not to do so either. When the demand stops, so will these atrocities.
BOYCOTT CORAL WORLD!

"The Humane Society International and the World Society for the Protection of Animals have stated that they believe that "the entire captive experience for marine mammals is so sterile and contrary to even the most basic elements of compassion and humanity that it should be rejected outright."

Still on schedule. Parts necessary to begin construction should be shipping to St. Thomas by the end of this month or early April.
