8 Reasons to Never See a Dolphin Show Again

An average dolphin lives for 20-30 years, and a captive one only half that time, if not less. But since the show must go on, the creatures just get replaced with new ones. The audience rarely has a clue what the poor things go through, and that could be because of common dolphin show myths….

– They “smile” at all times – when they’re satisfied with life and when they can hardly bear it. They just can’t physically look miserable.
– No matter how large the tanks might seem to us, captive animals get access to less than 1% of the space they normally require for a healthy existence in their natural environment.
– In those small pools, the sounds bouncing off the walls can seriously affect an animal’s psyche. Add loud music, shouting, and applause (as well as a combination of other things dolphins go through in captivity), and you’ll see why they’re under constant stress.
– Dolphins are always kept slightly hungry before the session on purpose. They understand that if they don’t work hard, they won’t get any food.
– In the wild, dolphins spend most of their time and energy searching for and maintaining relationships. Keeping dolphins in an enclosed area with several other animals is like putting a person in a room with strangers and forcing them to interact.
– With each move, dolphins spend 5 to 8 days in dark tanks not much larger than the animal itself. And they’re often not alone in such tiny tanks, but share them with 1 or 2 other dolphins.
– Studies on the benefits of dolphin therapy usually don’t take into account that the effect of it, if any, is short-lived and kind of like a placebo.
