Depuis la création de ce blog, je me suis concentrée à relater des faits mondiaux sur la captivité. J’ai essayé d’évoquer chaque sujet important (captures, Taiji, naissance en captivité, programme de reproduction, procès, etc.
Mais, j’ai avant tout voulu créer ce blog pour pouvoir étudier plus sérieusement les parcs français.


Le récent décès du dauphin Écume au Marineland d’Antibes m’a semblé l’occasion de me lancer sur le sujet…

Everthing is now hidden, all their barbaric deeds are done under concealment but we managed to get cameras into places they (fishermen) wouldn’t look in. They say they kill dolphins humanly yet this film will show you that it is untrue. Dolphins die in the worst possible way and are tortured in front of their own families. Babies are allowed to swim in their mothers blood. This film shows the proceedings in Taiji from Dawn to death.
