Dolphins in captivity have nothing to smile about
A life in captivity is no life at all for intelligent, social dolphins. They often look like they are smiling, but this is just the shape of their face.
Expedia Group would have you believe that dolphins in captivity are happy.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. Captive dolphins are:
- separated from their mothers far too young
- confined in tanks 200,000 times smaller than their natural home
- deprived of food so they can be trained

An industry based on lies
The multi-billion dollar captive dolphin industry wants you to think dolphins enjoy their confinement. They rely on a quirk of nature – the shape of a dolphins’ face – and years of misinformation.
Captive dolphins are living miserable lives in the name of profit.
Tell Expedia Group to end this cruelty
Dolphinariums and other venues only exist because they are profitable.
We have to end that, so no more dolphins are forced to endure this awful existence.
While many travel companies have joined our movement, Expedia Group is still selling tickets to these cruel venues, and profiting from this cruel multi-billion dollar industry.
Sign our petition asking Expedia Group to stop selling, offering or promoting any dolphin shows or experiences.
