Mr Sibusiso Sithole
On New Year’s Eve, uShaka Marine World in Durban, South Africa, will host a “rave” with 3 dance floors and featuring 18 DJ’s.

As self-appointed guardians of 11 captive dolphins, this can only be described as an ill-thought-out and negligent act.

Dolphins in captivity are denied the pleasures of freedom, have much higher mortality rates, and are more susceptible to stress and disease.

It is uShaka Marine World’s responsibility to limit such stress as much as humanly possible. At present, they are failing to do just that.

Therefore, we urge the City of Durban to step in and to place the welfare of the dolphins above profit by revoking uShaka’s permit to host such an event.
