(SNA)Singapore resort urged to free captured dolphins

A Singapore casino resort's acquisition of dolphins from the Solomon Islands for its marine park contributed to the depletion of the species there, an animal welfare group said. The Singapore-based Animal Concerns Research and Education Society released a video on the depletion of the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins from the islands as it intensified a campaign for Resorts World Sentosa to release the animals, AFP reports. RWS acquired 27 dolphins from the Solomons between 2008 and 2009 despite the availability of information “advising against the purchase’’, ACRES said in a statement.
