Cetacean Protection Program

Captive Cetacean Monitoring Program

Originally starting out as an awareness campaign called Dolphin Tales, the program has since evolved into a full-fledged means to regulate the imports of dolphins and whales for shows in Thailand.

Love Wildlife does a yearly survey of the dolphinariums in Thailand, funded by Earth Island. By doing this and keeping an ID record of each individual cetacean, we have been able to stop two illegal captures from the wild and three legal imports of dolphins from Taiji, Japan, and one import request of wild-caught beluga whales from Russia.

Love Wildlife works alongside the Department of Fisheries and reports any suspicious activities to the authorities.
