Secondly, the public gets full access to observe dolphins closely with ease, serving the purpose of education. In addition, Captivity eliminates the need for long trips to the ocean and boat rides that pollutes marine ecosystems and disturbs wildlife populations. As part of our commitment as a Conservation Institution: breeding and release projects will be introduced in the near future.
