Dolphins in Captivity: A Good Idea?

|

In episode 3 of my 'Adventures in Biology' series, I travel to the Moorea Dolphin Center located at the Intercontinental Moorea Resort and Spa. Now, I've always been fairly skeptical about keeping large cetaceans in captivity - but I wanted to keep and open mind and hear what director Yann Martel had to say. I was very impressed. The outreach work and research being done at the facility is impressive. I left the center as a true fan of the program.

What do you think?
