Releasing Captive Dolphins and Whales Back to the Wild
Marine Animal Husbandry, & Welfare
Marine Mammal Welfare Regulations
This web site was created for two main reasons:
(a) as an information resource centre regarding the husbandry and welfare of marine animals particularly those maintained in zoological collections, aquaria, dolphinaria and rescue and rehabilitation centres;
(b) to provide an informed alternative to negative and misleading information regarding marine animals (particularly aquatic mammals) in captive care that can sometimes be propagated by a number of "animal advocate" organisations and NGOs.
NB: The author of this sites would like to make it clear that whilst striving to promote what may be considered "best practice" in the care and husbandry of marine animals in captive care this should not be construed as giving unconditional support for any or all facilities that display marine animals internationally.
