Dolphin Sanctuary Korea
SOUTH KOREA’S FIRST OCEAN DOLPHIN SANCTUARY
We aim to transfer captive dolphins to an ocean dolphin sanctuary so they can live in a more natural environment.
Right now, there are about 40 captive cetaceans living in small tanks, causing them severe stress and reducing their average lifespan to 4 years.
Dolphins illegally captured in Korean waters can be released back into the open ocean. But for dolphins born in captivity, or imported from other countries, it is almost impossible to return them to their natural habitat
Dolphins who are old, in poor health, or have retired from the animal entertainment industry will be the first ones transferred to the sanctuary.
The Dolphin Sanctuary will provide a natural shelter for these dolphins, and some of them may even be able to be returned to the open ocean.
