New law looks set to ban dolphin shows in France

New legislation in France is set to ban dolphin shows in two years time as part of wider rules that will also target circuses and mink farms.

France currently has two marine parks which hold whales and dolphins. at Marineland Antibes which holds 4 orcas and 12 bottlenose dolphins. Planete Sauvage is thought to have 9 bottlenose dolphins.

Rules in France have gradually been tightened over a number of years with laws previously being brought in to ban the breeding of whales and dolphins in captivity.

It is unclear what the future will now hold for whales and dolphins held in France but the new law highlights the need for the creation of more sanctuaries where captive whales and dolphins can be released into more natural surroundings following the success of the SEA LIFE TRUST Beluga Whale Sanctuary that WDC has helped to develop.
