Petition Launched against Pakistan’s Dolphin Show
Animal rights advocates are calling Pakistan’s government and people to stop Pakistan Navy’s planned dolphin show in Karachi.
Pakistan’s planned dolphin show made it into news earlier this month as the first ever event of its kind in the country. The show is being scheduled for the month of October in metropolitan Karachi and Pakistan Navy is reportedly organizing it in partnership with Utrish Dolphinarium Ltd – the infamous Russian company that deals in supplying marine mammals to clients for such events.
While Lev Mukhametov of Utrish Dolphinarium says such recreation involving dolphins needs to entertain people in Pakistan, animal rights advocates think disagree. Dolphins and other mammals in captivity lose their freedom and are made to live in captivity and most of them don’t live long enough in such conditions. While Pakistan Navy and Utrish Dolphinarium may be earning a lot from such shows in the country, the already endangered mammal would be made to suffer from captivity and unnatural living conditions.
To save the dolphins from abuse, a petition has been launched online asking the government and people of Pakistan, Pakistan Navy, and Utrish Dolphinarium to drop their plans for the Karachi show. More than three thousand people who believe in freedom and natural life for dolphins and other mammals have signed the petition.
