No orcas or dolphins for Sochi Olympics

Narnia - captured orca in Russia WDC research fellow, Erich Hoyt has reported today that “No orcas will be exhibited at the Olympics in Sochi”. He also reports that “no dolphin will carry the torch, as earlier proposed by the region. Both of these confirmed by the President, Sochi Olympic Committee.”

“There had been a plan to send orcas to Sochi (but not necessarily for the Olympics) in early December but it was postponed. The Sochi Dolphinarium was involved in the capture of the 7 orcas in the Okhotsk Sea in 2013 so at some point they might be expected to take delivery. For now, at least 2 orcas, including Narnia, are staying in small pens in Moscow while others have gone to China. No orcas are performing yet in Russia or China and we suppose they are now being trained for the circus shows.”

Please help WDC end captivity for whales and dolphins once and for all
