Join the pod to protect dolphins

Dolphins belong in the ocean, not in small tanks. The only place you should see them is in the wild, where they belong. 

How to get involved

We want to create a splash to show that there is a wave of support for travel companies to stop selling and promoting captive dolphin entertainment.

We'd love you to join us and encourage others to do the same. You can get involved and support lasting change for dolphins by changing your social media profile picture, sharing our images, tagging us and using the #JoinedThePod hashtag.

Share our images

We've collected some powerful images below. Share them to show your friends that, while we'll soon be back to a normal life, captive dolphins are in 'lockdown' forever.
