Controversial dolphin show

DENR poised to stop controversial dolphin show The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has effectively pulled the plug on the dolphin show at Subic Bay Freeport when it declared this month it was the only agency qualified to issue Environmental Clearance Certificates (ECC).

The Subic Bay Marine Exploratorium (SBME), set to open this month in Subic Bay, Philippines, is in the center of a heated debate over the use of dolphins and whales for public display and entertainment


  • Dolphin show displays the splendor of the mamal. It allows humans to witness and appreciate their uniqueness. It's all a matter of interpretation. Cruelty? Don't think so. These creatures in captivity are "emassadors" between races. They are treated well in so-called captivity. They permit humans to view and feel strongly in support of these beautiful creatures. The conservationists are short circuiting their own efforts by banning the display of these noble creatures.
