Second dolphin dies at Dolphinaris Arizona

Dolphinaris Arizona has reported the death of a young, 10-year-old bottlenose dolphin held at its facility – the second dolphin to die in less than a year at the controversial marine park.

The park reports that the dolphin, called Alia, was behaving strangely shortly before her death.  An official cause has not yet been determined.  The park blamed a rare muscle disease for the previous death of Bodie, a 7-year-old bottlenose dolphin.

Dolphinaris Arizona opened in October 2016 despite objections from WDC and other groups.  The business owns several parks in Mexico, and offers programs to swim with dolphins held at their facilities.
