This sinful act has been repeated in the history of aquariums. Sadly, these wild dolphins have had to lose their calves over and over. The breeding practice takes place not for the dolphins, but rather for humans for their entertainment and profit. A few of them survive, and live a long time, but most of them die. Dolphins live in groups of hundreds, sometimes even thousands. They raise their calves together, swim around the vast…
