Here in the Turks and Caicos Islands we have a long history of protecting dolphins and this community wants it to stay that way. Last November I wrote this Call for letters to Governor and Planning and sadly nearly a year later we are still trying to halt having dolphins in captivity in this country. For this to happen we need your help. A message from TC Reef's Don Stark
Please visit Dolphin Defense Fund and make a donation, every single dollar counts! If you don't have a few dollars to spare, please sign the Petition to Stop the New Dolphinarium AND the Petition to Urge Carnival Cruise Lines to not offer tours with Captive Dolphins. Putting pressure on Carnival Cruise Lines may well be the best way to halt the proposed Dolphinarium in Grand Turk. Without the cruise ship clientele there is no possibility of such a business venture succeeding.
