Help us CLOSE DOWN Bodrum Dolphin Park!



We urge the immediate closure of Bodrum Dolphin Park and the safeguarding of the dolphins and other marine mammals! #yunuslaraozgurluk

Led by the Freedom for Dolphins Platform (Yunuslara Özgürlük Platformu) and BGKO, and greatly aided by the successful campaign supported by Turkish author Buket Uzuner, long-running efforts on a national and international scale culminated in the closure of the Kas Dolphin Park in April 2013. In 2010, similar efforts led by the Dolphin Angels in Fethiye and supported by thousands achieved the release of two dolphins, Tom and Misha, from a tiny concrete pool; and thanks to Born Free's operation "Back to the Blue", their successful return to the wild.

The Bodrum Dolphin Park is another facility inhumanely keeping wild dolphins, a walrus and sea lions for commercial gain, despite not having any official permit for opening a dolphinarium.

The Freedom for Dolphins Platform, who just managed to cancel the building of a new dolphinarium in Izmir-Turkey in March 2014, again supported by local civil groups and Buket Uzuner, and this time also by the BGKO association who made the Turkish version of the video "My Friend", are now focusing on the Bodrum Dolphinarium.

Our demands to the Turkish authorities concerned are as follows:

- The permanent closure of the Bodrum Dolphin Park in Guvercinlik, which is operating with only a permit for "alcohol-licensed restaurant".

- The voiding of all CITES documents issued for the animals at the facility.

- In accordance with Article 24 of Turkish Animal Protection Law 5199 and international agreements, that the two Kaş dolphins captured in Turkish waters and the other marine mammals leased from the Ukraine with falsified documents be placed under protection without delay, in a marine sanctuary run by marine mammal specialists and located in a remote bay.

- Legislation to prevent the opening of new dolphinariums and close all the remaining ones in Turkey.

Please help make the Bodrum Dolphin Park the third facility to close in Turkey by signing our petition to the Turkish authorities. Together, let's speak out against cruelty and stand up for the freedom of these wonderful, intelligent creatures!

According to the Universal Declaration of Animal Rights:

"· All wild animals have the right to liberty in their natural environment, whether land, air or water, and should be allowed to procreate.

· Deprivation of freedom, even for educational purposes, is an infringement of this right.

· No animal shall be exploited for the amusement of man.

· Exhibitions and spectacles involving animals are incompatible with their dignity."

Thank you!
