Five Curaçao dolphins were sent to Saudi Arabia (INTERVIEW)

Five young dolphins from Curaçao Sea Aquarium have been ripped from their families and sent to Saudi Arabia. We’re talking to Susan Hartland from Animal Rights, who took Sea Aquarium to court.

A Curaçao judge had ruled that the five young dolphins were not allowed to be flown to Saudi Arabia. The aquarium in Curaçao didn’t follow the ruling and sent the animals anyways.

Dolphins Serena, Machu, Mosa, Sami and Luna were flown to Fakieh Aquarium on the 6th of June.

Animal Rights is very concerned for their welfare, because the living conditions for dolphins in thee Middle Eastern country are bad. The organization is trying to get the animals back.
