Dolphin exports

Dear Sir,

Whatever the population of dolphins in the beautiful waters surrounding the Solomon Islands, can it be right that we take a wild dolphin, a highly intelligent sentient being, and confine it to a life of confinement, often in conditions with poor hygiene and management.

I respectfully ask the Government of the Solomon Islands to reconsider this issue and to refuse to allow the capture and export of wild dolphins.
