Is swimming with dolphins ethical?
Of course, we do not advocate depriving dolphins of their natural habitat. However, when evaluated objectively, we should say that there are many dangers awaiting dolphins in today's world seas. Both their natural habitat has been destroyed and thousands die every year due to unconscious hunting.
The number of dolphins in the seas is decreasing day by day due to the deterioration of the ecological balance. For example, 3 different dolphin species have completely disappeared in the last 70 years.
Also, leaving dolphins to nature in parks is the same as killing them. Because these creatures were born and raised in dolphin parks. The rate of adaptation to their natural environment is very low. They can only be released back to the seas through private rehabilitation centers. This process takes a long time and their return yields 50% success. There are many examples of this in the literature.
What is the reason for the scars on the skin of dolphins?
These scars are definitely not ill-treatment or disease. Dolphins in the park are always together. It is part of their nature of dolphins to form scratches on each other through their teeth. Through these traces, they establish a kind of hierarchy.
