It’s a poetic sounding name for a prison, but Dolphinaris is nothing but a water-filled concrete-walled gulag for aquatic mammals second only to us in brain power.
And most likely superior to us in compassion.
Among local humans, however, are those who are willing to fight for the imprisoned and enslaved dolphins who will be forced to cavort in their desert puddles with patrons willing to fork over from around $50 to $175 each to interact with them.
That grassroots protest group is called Dolphin Free AZ.
The facility they object to – that we all should object to – is adjacent to the OdySea Aquarium and Butterfly Wonderland in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community at Via de Ventura and Loop 101.
Shame on the tribe for going along with this atrocity.
