Help Stop Marine-Animal Prisons in Their Tracks
Several areas in India are considering building or expanding marine-mammal facilities at a time when other nations are closing down oceanariums and the US Congress is holding hearings on banning the confinement of orcas to marine-mammal parks. The government of Kerala plans to allow the construction of the largest oceanarium in Asia. In Maharashtra, plans are in place to expand the shamefully neglected Taraporewala Aquarium by adding orcas and animals who are native to Antarctica. And Delhi is considering building a dolphinarium.
Sea animals inhabit vast, fascinating and complex worlds. Many species share intricate relationships and work cooperatively in search of food. Fish, penguins and marine mammals are meant to live in immense habitats. In captivity, sea animals are relegated to swimming in endless circles and are condemned to living in enclosures, never again to experience the exhilaration of swimming free through ocean waves. Keeping ocean-dwelling animals in cramped, artificial tanks drives them insane.
You Can HelpPlease contact the Member Secretary of the Central Zoo Authority and urge him not to grant permission for the construction of any other marine-animal prisons.
