This places plays a huge part in the slaughtering of thousands of Dolphins in Japan. In 2011 they bought 5 Bottlenose dolphins from Japan. Pleas do not support this..dolphins are dying so these places can profit from you all. They lost their family and went through hell so you could see a show!!

I'm confused, how can they play a "HUGE" part in slaughtering dolphins if they bought 5? I don't get the connection between buying 5 and slaughter. At least these aren't being slaughtered. I'm not enthusiastic about any animals in captivity but pandas in captivity have kept them from being extinct.
