in aquariums, zoo parks and research centres gives
us an excellent opportunity to learn about them.
While dolphins are
very friendly and definitely connect to humans and even develop
personal bonds, statistics show that their life spans are shorter and
they reproduce less in captivity. It may be
good that they are
safe from predators and well fed, but they are missing out on the
natural pod life and freedom in the large oceans.
