Keep the Dolphins Free
Broadcast on 2016/11/12 (PT)
Danielle Riley, Organizer/Advocate Dolphin Free AZ &
Anna Kiley, Science Teacher and former dolphin trainer
Many people are unaware of the problems surrounding captive swim with the dolphin or whale programs and dolphin encounters, and the negative impact on all involved – humans, dolphins and whales. Just like orcas in captivity, these whales and dolphins suffer from the stress of captivity as well. Danielle and Anna strongly believe we can’t forget these amazing individuals and they are working to end captivity and create a world where every whale and dolphin is free. Join us to hear about their crusade to prevent any more from being captured and held. What they share with us about the current state of affairs in their world may hurt but to know better is to do better so let’s listen to what they have to say. This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.
Editor’s Note: Because we are committed to providing the most accurate and reliable content available, we carefully select guests who are reputable, passionate and welcomed as an individual who is a part of a global community who cares about the planet. Anna Kiley is no exception. She is passionate, ethical and well informed. She contacted us after we recorded Keep the Dolphins Free show to correct something she said on the show. Her email read: “I mentioned that the wildlife world zoo sold New Guinea singing dogs to a roadside zoo and sold a tiger cub to a roadside zoo. Upon further reading, the documentation says they “transferred” the animals and does not use the word “sold.” Is there any way this can be corrected/edited before airing? I would not want to be misleading by providing inaccurate information.” Anna Kiley. Now is there any doubt about the integrity and honesty of this amazing guest? Enjoy the show.
