Dolphin export a barbaric act

I was most disturbed to hear that the Solomon Islands has permitted the export of live dolphins.

It shows a total disregard for the well-being of other creatures on this planet and is nothing short of barbaric.

As a keen scuba diver, I have been considering holidaying in the Solomons to appreciate the beautiful marine environment and its inhabitants.

Needless to say, I won't consider going anywhere near your country in the future.
I hope others consider boycotting the Solomons in the light of the cruel and selfish export of these dolphins.

Do you feel proud of what you've done?
