This is the translation:

Immediate cessation of breeding, record stop by other dolphins and medium-term closure!

I have decided here in Germany becoming active me, so that keeping dolphins in the last two Dolphinariums (Nuremberg and Duisburg) is terminated. My goal is to reach as many people who knew yet of the cruel operations behind the scenes of the Zoo and in the Dolphinariums leisure industry as possible.

Already 33 dolphins (list of all deaths), of which 17 calves (Dolphin babies) died in Nuremberg. Due to economic factors, it adheres to these deadly breeding experiments in Nuremberg. End of October 2014 a dolphin baby came in Nuremberg zoo again to the world. The first four weeks are the most critical, because a dolphin calf only needs to build a your own immune system. The sunny, Dolphin mother lost her newborn baby in 2007 after a few days. So, we now hope and fear for the new life. This life will be marked by monotony, stress and medication.

Dolphins are wild animals that swim every day great distances in the ocean and up to 55 km/h! You dive up to 300 m deep and live in social groups of family, as we humans! Live in the so-called lagoon of 10 dolphins in confined spaces: overview of the basins of the Nuremberg Dolphinarium

Another major problem is the so-called "Dolphin Carousel". For these breeding attempts, a constant exchange of dolphins takes place. Recently had to make a young, unsuitable for breeding bottlenose dolphin named "Rocco" Platz and was deported in a Dolphinarium in the Spanish city of Malaga. This makes the animals who also have no alternatives for great stress, because the groups are thrown together again.

To keep these highly intelligent marine mammals in captivity, various medications (including psychiatric drugs used) as it turned out at an insight in the veterinary records of the Nuremberg zoo.

That's why we demand:

Immediate cessation of breeding, record stop by other dolphins and medium-term closure!

I use this side to translate:

And now a part of the new big pool is leaking and the salt water destroyed a nearby small wood. It has to be closed until being repaired. It costs millions of $$ and there is a fight going on who is responsible. Until this is cleared, the dolphins cannot use a big part of the pool any longer....
