WDC Opposes Dolphin Circus Proposal For Prague
WDC is very concerned to learn of a proposal to bring a dolphin circus to Prague in the Czech Republic in April 2013. Such shows provide seriously inadequate conditions for the animals due to their travelling nature, thus threatening their health and welfare.
WDC is calling for an end to dolphin captivity in the EU, following the publication of our report
on EU dolphinaria in 2011, which demonstrated that these facilities cannot meet the biological requirements of dolphins in captivity and that they do not survive well in captivity. As a result, dolphinaria, and the EU Member States who licence them, are failing to meet EU zoo law.
The Czech Republic is currently a dolphin-friendly country with no dolphins in captivity. WDC is supporting a petition aiming to maintain this situation and calling on the Czech authorities to prohibit the dolphin circus proposed for Prague.
