Charles Clifford, Minister of Tourism, Grand Cayman, has stated he expects dolphins to die in the Dolphin Cove Cayman "as they do in the wild." Funny thing is in the wild, they have predators other natural threats. In captivity, there's only 1 threat, humans and their incompetence, just like the 6 sharks which died due to mechanical malfunction.

Read about it here.

Please feel free to tell Charles how you feel about that:


As for those who say the dolphins are doing sea mammals a great service... I say rent flipper and free willie.

The sad sorry thing about this is ... you could have the whole world telling the Caymans not to do it .. and give them all the good reasons.

The fact is this is happening .. 3 dolphinariums already have approved planning. One already has the dolphins ready for export.

It isn't if it's when .. it's really quite upsetting. But it is almost impossible to reason and change the minds of some money greedy, uneducated, incompitent morons.

Even though it is my business (tourism) I really hope that tourism takes a dive because of this. It's a shame but something needs to wake these government idiots up .. and fast.
