action
Ban the sale of tickets to attractions holding captive dolphins or whales.
background
The Government should ban UK travel companies from selling tickets to all international attractions holding captive dolphins, whales or porpoises (excluding those solely for rehabilitation). There have been no captive cetaceans in the UK for over 25 years.
additional details
Whales, dolphins and porpoises are some of the most intelligent and emotionally aware animals. They should not spend their lives in concrete tanks. Captivity is a very damaging experience for cetaceans which often involves the separation of babies from mothers, wild capture and performing unnatural behaviours. This can lead to depression and even self-harm. The only exclusion is when held solely for rehabilitation (with no shows or 'swim-withs') to be released to the wild or into sea pens.
