I live turtles and I am against captivity. I watched and read about them rehabilitating a beached dolphin a few months ago. The dolphin was sick and wasn't eating. They gave the dolphin antibiotics and it started to eat again and released back into the...More

I know this is a place wanting to help repopulate the turtles but the adults are kept in tiny little pools with nothing but concrete surrounding them. I felt awful for the mistreatment of such beautiful creatures
