    Phuket Dolphin Prison

    At least they get the right people on stage

    Story has been on the main Phuket news sites.

    Divers Plan Protest at Prospect of Performing Dolphins in Phuket Show - Phuket Wan

    Sea Sheperd rails against allegedly wild caught dolphins for Phuket Dolphinarium

    Opposition to Phuket dolphin show growing fast

    As someone who has swam with wild dolphin pods numerous times I think it is wrong that these creatures are used for "family entertainment" , hopefully this project will not be allowed to open.

    The dolphins are probably more intelligent than those who think it is a good idea to keep four of them in that puddle. Cash before common sense.......again.

    I am not in favour of this dolphinarium, but why when they opened Tiger Kingdom, was there not the same reaction or outcry???? I hate seeing those drugged up Tigers, with tourists, taking pictures, as if they have achieved something???

    If the tiger kingdom in Phuket is anything like the one in CNX they do at least have some real space.. room to move, many enclosures and play areas etc.. I dont like it, but the tiny pool I have seen pictured for this would be like a 10x10 cell with no other movement.

    I agree they are comparable tho.

    Perhaps they will put saddles on the dolphins and have slow loris ride them around ?

    Disgusting.
