Dolphins are intelligent, social animals. They need to be free in the ocean and not in concrete tanks or in the small shallow lagoon you have there, where they can't dive or jump, only float on top of the water so that people can see them, 4 THEIR entertainment. It is an entertainment business only for the $$$. Mister van Elk said on national tv: It is a collection of dolphins. So the word is out.... it IS a collection nothing more nothing less! Release the dolphins and the ones who can't make it in the open water, release them in a seapen. Stop the breeding programs so there will be no more dolphins to "display" 4 you! THE TREATMENT OF THE DOLPHINS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE NEED OF THE DOLPHINS. 

( Dolphinarium Holland says they have NO connections with SeaWorld, so why do they have "breeding programs" with them? Why did they made a deal with LoroParque? LoroParque IS Seaworld..... Orca MORGAN made some money for this dolphinarium in the Netherlands. With this money they made a whole new dome for dolphinshows.... This is the first time in years that they could do this. Maybe because of the money they got from SeaWorld? Maybe because of Morgan?)
