Freedom! Switzerland Bans Dolphins in Captivity

Via Scoop.itEarth Island Institute Philippines

“In a major victory for dolphins and dolphin advocates, Switzerland’s House of Representatives has voted to outlaw the keeping of dolphins in aquariums or for entertainment purposes.

 

The Swiss Senate also banned the importation of dolphins going forward, meaning that the three dolphins currently “living” in Connyland, the country’s only dolphinarium, will not be replaced when they die, reports SwissInfo.”
