Bali Hosts First Center Dedicated to Returning Captive Dolphins to the Wild

1 Mins read

Bali is hosting the first center dedicated to prepare dolphins who have been kept in captivity for a return to the wild.

With the help of Indonesian authorities, animal activists rescued four dolphins and brought them to the center for treatment.

More than 3,000 dolphins are kept in captivity around the world for entertainment in an industry that generates $5.5 billion annually, according to a 2019 report by World Animal Protection.

Captivity is more stressful for dolphins than any other animal. 

The animals often switch off their sonar abilities when they are taken out of the wild — and these abilities are essential for them to navigate the ocean and to communicate. 

In order for them to be returned to the wild safely, they must be prepared and trained to catch food on their own.

Thankfully, there are hundreds of activists working at returning dolphins to the wild and this center will be used as a model that can be duplicated. There are centers planned for Italy and Crete.

At Karmagawa and SaveTheReef we think this is great news! We believe all animals should be free and we’re happy that there are people working hard to make sure these dolphins can have a happy life.
