“Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society was very disappointed to see the BBC Online promoting holidays to see captive dolphins in the Summer Holiday programme’s Orlando special, broadcast Tuesday evening in the UK.
By encouraging people to visit captive facilities such as Sea World, Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society believes that the BBC Online is condoning the capture and confinement of whales and dolphins and contributing to the growing popularity of swim with dolphins and other interactive programmes. These programmes, along with the facilities offering them and the animals exploited by them, are increasing in number around the world.
If you would like to complain to the BBC Online about its promotion of facilities holding captive whales and dolphins, please write to:
