Routine cleaning of dolphin tanks involves dropping the water level, scrubbing the walls, andhosing down the tank. Draining the tanks often forces the dolpins to lie on concrete while workers clean the algea off the walls

How very stressful for the dolphins- water holds up their body weight, so they must feel like they are suffocating while having to lay on the concrete- there needs to be a separate holding tank they can go into while their main tank gets cleaned.

This is cruel to the dolphins. They need water at all times. There has to be another way to clean the tank without leaving them with no water laying on cement.

Signed and noted Thanks Cher. It is quiet bad enough that these highly intelligent creatures are STILL, in this day and age when it is known scientifcally what suffering these wonderful creatuers can endure, are confined in captvity, but surely the very LEAST they could do is to make sure that their every need is met. I know that the tanks must be cleaned but it wouldn't take THAT much effort to have smaller tank where they could at least move , for the time that the tanks are being cleaned. It doesn't take away from the fact that however well they are looked after they should NOT be kept in this way. I DO wish people would boycott going into these places so that they couldn't make money this way. They could most likely still get a huge amount of toursist to pay out money if they turned the pools into a venture playground where children could learn all about dophins from vidoes and exhibitions depicting the dolphin's life-styles and have fun things like boats made into the shape of Dophlins that the children could ride in and fun exhitbts like that that don't involve a live creature at all.. You know.. a sort of Theme Park.. That way they could still make money and use the existing facliities if they were modified.
