I have recently signed up to the newsletter of the blog “The Dolphin Connection” , and I got my first newsletter this morning! “10 good reasons not to go to a dolphinarium”. It’s a French article so I’ll just translate in English. 10 good reasons not to go to a dolphinarium… Or why becoming a dolphin trainer is not a career project.
In March 2012, Richard O’Barry wrote a letter to Jersey Shore star Nicole Polizzi –aka Snookie- after a photograph surfaced of her swimming with captive dolphin that lived (was caged) in a Mexican swim-with program. Sadly, fellow reality star Kim Kardashian has followed in Snooki’s pro-captivity footsteps by visiting the Miami Seaquarium on December 7. Scope the picture of Kim fin-shaking with one of its captive dolphins lower. Cove star Richard O’Barry—the grandfather of the cetacean abolitionist movement—wasn’t pleased by Kardashian’s appearance.
