We believe all dolphins should be viewed in the wild only - and no dolphin should be held in captivity or servitude; be subject to cruel treatment; or be removed from their natural environment. Captive dolphins that cannot be rehabilitated into the wild should be released into sea pens. There are existing and viable plans to do so, allowing substantially more freedom of movement within their natural environment.
Dolphins have been viewed as magical and "Man’s Best Friend in the Sea" for millennia by humans. They’re one of the only animals that appear to play, joyfully leaping out of the water, and the bottlenose dolphin seems to grin widely at everything. Dolphins are social animals, with emotional sophistication. For years it's been known that dolphins are incredibly intelligent creatures.
Intelligent enough to serve in the United States Navy since 1960 and have even protected Navy Seals from sharks. However, some whale and dolphin mass beachings are caused by sonar weapons used by both US and GB navies, as well as others.
While dolphins have incredible abilities to feel emotions, understand complex problems and communicate in ways we can’t even imagine, humans don’t seem to value this. We put the other creatures of the world underneath us and our own 'intelligence;. Knowing how dynamic dolphins are, keeping them away from thier family members, taking their babied away from them, being kept in glorified bathtubs and forcing them to do tricks for food is insulting and cruel. Could you imagine the pain of living in a small room your entire life and having to do flips to be fed? Sounds like a miserable existence, doesn’t it?
Veneno is not a charity, but we wanted to use the power of retail to support these misunderstood vulnerable creatures around the world. Therefore we'll proudly donate a portion of product proceeds to the wilddolphin.org charity.
