These are some photos of various Commerson’s Dolphin wild captures that took place between 1978 to 1987. The facilities that partook in these captures include:
- Duisburg Zoo
- Sunshine international Aquarium
- Bahia Blanca
- Marinepia Matsushima Aquarium
- Toba Aquarium
None of these animals except for 2 are alive today, and it was believed that 53 animals were captured. This is the industry you are putting your dollars into when you buy a ticket to a marine park housing dolphins in captivity.
I can only imagine what a traumatic experience it is to be scooped up out of the ocean and carted off to live in a box until you die (apparently very shortly after).
Quick peek at the resin orca necklaces that I’ve been working on! These will replace the polymer clay orca necklaces
