Why is this illegal dolphin facility still open?

Shut Down Illegal Dolphin Swim Facility in The Bahamas

Blackbeard's Cay is a swim with the dolphins facility that has deplorable conditions: the dolphin pens are only 7 feet deep at mid tide, there is no shade and there is no protection in case of hurricanes.Because of this awful treatment, the Supreme Court ruled that the facility had to be closed down and the dolphins moved to a suitable - more humane - location. But the government is failing to enforce the judge's order, and instead has now approved another dolphin facility to be opened.

Captive marine mammal facilities are outdated, inhumane, and anti conservationistIt is critical that we express our objection to these facilities and any future marine mammal facilities in The Bahamas. 

Please help us put an end to the exploitation of this species by signing this petition and urging authorities in the Bahamas to follow the law and close down this illegally-running facility.
