In a press release, India’s Ministry of Environment and Forests states that they’ve advised any proposal to open a dolphinarium be rejected.

“Whereas cetaceans in general are highly intelligent and sensitive, and various scientists who have researched dolphin behavior have suggested that the unusually high intelligence; as compared to other animals means that dolphin should be seen as ‘non-human persons’ and as such should have their own specific rights and is morally unacceptable to keep them captive for entertainment purpose,”

That is very good news as having observed dolphins in captivity at a dolphin show and off the coast of Spain in a boat in their natural environment they are highly intelligent and i would never go to a dolphin show ever again.

If only we could stop the destruction of the rain forests and the systematic killings of the silver back apes in Africa then that would be a very great thing Diane Fossey springs to mind there.
