Dolphins are highly cognitive. They have complex forms of communication, transmit learning from generation to generation, are self aware, work cooperatively with each other and other species, some populations even use tools. Their ability to learn is what condemns them to be captured, bought and sold around the world as they can be “trained” to entertain humans. To confine them and force them to perform for us is cruel. It’s time to end the show and let them be wild and free.
