Captive rehabilitation is often promoted as a good deed with the animals’ wellbeing in mind and a way of saving stranded dolphins so that they can be released back into the wild. Unfortunately that is not the whole story. Many dolphins never leave captivity once they have been “rescued” due to the low success rate of captive rehabilitation. Marine mammals such as dolphins simply aren’t made for life behind bars.
