For Valentin, Moana and the rest: close the dolphinariums!

The French senate has adopted the law for the restoration of biodiversity less the amendments related to the closure of the dolphinariums, once again showing its lack of interest to cetacean suffering.

Yet the psychological suffering of captive cetaceans turns them mad, as tragically illustrated by the story of Tilikum in Blackfish.

Dolphinariums kidnap marine mammals and force them to do commercial shows. They mistreat the animals and jeopardise biodiversity.

In the interests of cetacean protection, these establishments are banned in several countries: Chilli, Hungary and Costa Rica in 2005, Switzerland in 2012 and finally India in 2013.

It is unbelievable that France refuses to take into account the scientific evidence and continues to ignore the suffering of these marine mammals.

The death of Valentin, the 19 year old who died in captivity at Marineland, Antibes, must not be in vain.

We, the undersigned, support One Voice's request to ban all French dolphinariums and to transfer all captive cetaceans to marine sanctuaries, as per Dr. Ingrid Visser's recommendations. The French state must release all cetaceans detained against their wishes, and permanently close these jails and block any new projects.

When will France stop tolerating slavery?

How else can we describe the detention and exploitation of dozens of cetaceans incarcerated in these pompously named dolphinariums?

We can't see chains, the atmosphere is lively, and the water clear and blue. The dolphins are smiling whilst the orcas maliciously splash the public. A lot of effort has gone into giving the image of one big happy family!

Let's expose this masquerade and put an end to it!

Do we need to remind ourselves that orcas and dolphins, amazing creatures made to roam the ocean, are not objects of entertainment? That removing them from their natural environment and not allowing their physical and psychological needs to be fulfilled causes terrible suffering?

One Voice calls for an up rise and a lobby campaign to ensure that captive cetaceans are restored to their natural environment, and that this exploitation of non-human persons stops!

Don't give up! Demand the closure of the dolphinariums and ban any new openings!
