Geoje Sea World is planning a new facility, to be named Geoje Dolphin Park, slated for construction in South Korea. GSW applied for permits to import 4 beluga whales from Russia and 15 dolphins from Japan - all wild caught. It is proven that dolphins and whales suffer greatly in captivity, and facilities like this help to subsidize the annual slaughters that take places in Taiji, Japan. The Republic of Korea is a leader in world affairs, but allowing trade in live dolphins and whales is a shameful practice that will hurt Korea's standing among the world public. We don't want to see that happen.
