RWS dolphins can still be returned to the wild

Dr Lee expressed her reservations over calls to release the dolphins. Her concerns are not misplaced. Returning captive animals to the wild is not easy. But two wrongs do not make a right. The capture of 27 dolphins near the Solomon Islands that resulted in the subsequent death of two of the dolphins, not to mention the unaccounted number of orphaned calves, is wrong. Keeping the dolphins captive indefinitely for fear of exposing them to the dangers of their natural home does not make up for the first error. It does not absolve RWS from doing the right thing: to rehabilitate and return these animals to the wild in a scientifically sound manner. There is a large body of evidence on good practice guidelines for re-introducing captive animals, including cetaceans, to the wild. We believe RWS has the resources to achieve these goals.
