Venues that hold dolphins’ captive for tourist entertainment are fooling visitors and profiting from cruelty. Behind every captive dolphin’s smile is trauma and suffering.

Dolphins belong in the ocean, not in small tanks. The only place you should see them is in the wild, where they belong.

By joining the pod you are supporting lasting change for dolphins.

By encouraging others to do the same you are creating a wave of action to end the suffering of dolphins; change your social profile picture, share our images, tag us and use #JoinedThePod.
