From SEA the WORLD of TRUTH

Did you know that the Indianapolis Zoo had a dolphin show? So it gets worst. At the Indianapolis Zoo, Nova, a bottlenose dolphin who was taken from the wild in 1988, has had eight pregnancies since 1993. Six of her calves have died. Two are living, including Kalei and one also born on June 3, 2011. After 12 years and 11 dead babies, the staff at the Zoo blamed all the deaths on the dolphins. They claim (per “Bringing up Mommy”) that the female dolphins just didn’t know how to be good mothers. After consulting with numerous experts, they came to the conclusion that dolphins just do not naturally have motherly instincts. It was 2000, and 3 of the 4 females at the zoo were close to giving birth again. (Note: Shiloh the Zoo’s 5th female died in 1997) Phoenix and Ripley both gave birth to live babies, but they both died the same day they were born. Then on November 16, 2000, Nova gave birth to her 4th calf, and it survived. After years of trying to breed these dolphins, Kalei was the result the zoo was looking for. The staff claims that the other adult females immediately started copying what Nova and her calf did. The females paired up and pretended to be mother and calf, swimming in formation and practicing nursing. In August 2001, it was China’s turn, and she gave birth to Indy, who also survived. A month later, Sept 11, 2001, Phoenix gave birth, but the calf did not live. On Feb. 2, 2002, Ripley gave birth to Jett, the zoo’s 3rd calf to survive. One might at this point conclude that these females finally gained their motherly instincts. Maybe it took the dolphins 3 or 4 tries to “get it right”.However, since Jett was born in 2002 there have been 8 calves born at the zoo, and NONE have survived. The Indy Zoo has reached out to many other dolphin facilities and experts for help. The most interesting response they received came from a group of High School students. In the article “Students on the Case of Dying Dolphins,” students from a local high school broke down the genetic diversity of the Indy dolphins and came to the conclusion that the death of many of the dolphin calves was due to inbreeding. We applaud the students and their teachers for this amazing work. However, after over 50 years of holding dolphins in captivity, does it really take a group of high school students to figure this out? Since they have started their breeding program, out of 28 dolphins only 4 have survived. Please pass the news on to your friends. Tell them not to buy a ticket to the Zoo until they stop trying to unsuccessfully breed dolphins. We are working on a project to raise awareness about the botched breeding program at the zoo. Please share this post far and wide.
