  • This is so cruel. You have taken these animals out of their natural habitat. They now live a stressful life!
  • I will never come to your museum you absolutely disgust me. How can you not realise that buying live dolphins from Taji is creating all the unnecessary killings. You have stolen the freedom of these dolphins ruined their lives do you really think they want to go from being free in the ocean to living a life of slavery in a fish tank?? You should be ashamed you God awful people I hope your wrath will come after the horror you have created. Thiefs! CAPTIVITY=SLAUGHTER $$$GREED$$$ MURDERERS

  • Kid's love this place
