Well I'm sure it will make money, sadly. The blame for it's success can indeed be placed on the 'Western' clients, the blame for making dolphins live in the equivalent of a hotel pool can not. It's once again something achieved with the minimum expense possible.

I think I can safely say that nobody from Animal Aid will be supporting this venture and if we can do anything to stop it happening we will.

I thought Turkey was progressing on animal rights with the abolition of bear entertainment and other changes like their attitude to street dogs and all this good work is going to be flushed down the toilet.

This is total cruelty as these poor animals will not only be subject to the trauma of living in a goldfish bowl and all the circus that is going to take place plus all the noise of the area through the night.It is not going to be like Seaworld in Florida where the animals have very much bigger tanks and relative peace and quiet when the public disappear as the area is a little remote. I am not supporting Seaworld as I hate seeing animals caged up but at least the animals are properly looked after as they can be in captivity. God help those poor dolphins if they get sick I cannot see the owners paying for the necessary treatment.

The Mayor is bonkers if he thinks this is going to enhance tourism in the area.

Feel disgusted beyond words.  Anyone any ideas on what we can do do stop this inhumanity or is it all signed, sealed and delivered?
We had the thread of keeping animals in zoos to enable keeping the species going which I do agree with, animals in a circus no and dolphins in a small pool definitely NO!!

Anyone any ideas!!

This is being organised by the Company who have the Dolphinarium in Kas and the 2 dolphins are coming from Kas. As you say your children were so upset by how they were being kept there so it doesn't bear thinking about what it will be like here. I'm really upset by this and think it's disgusting that animals can be kept in this way.
