There are believed to be over 4,000 dolphins, porpoises and whales in captivity worldwide. Studies indicate that the public is increasingly concerned about their individual welfare, with the popularity of the captive attractions reportedly in decline. AMLS needs urgent support to realise their goal of becoming the first facility to combine the rescue and care for marine life with a refuge for displaced dolphins from captive attractions.
