New South Wales, Australia has passed a law putting an end to breeding & importing captive dolphins.
This means farewell to dolphin entertainment, breeding & importing in the Australian state.
The law was introduced by NSW environment minister Matt Kean to stop exploiting dolphins.
The new law received warm welcome by dolphins campaigners around the world.
The last remaining dolphin park in NSW, Dolphin Marine Conservation Park (DMCP), has no issue with the new law and is happy with it.
“I’m quite happy with the intent of the legislation,” said Terry Goodall, GM of DMCP.
Terry added that the park will take care of the 3 dolphins remaining in the park until they die.
