Turkey has once again recalled the dolphin parks that came about after the death of the dolphin to be taken from a show. It can be tried in cases where the general animal animal rights law and the dolphin parks are closed and the enforcement of the shipment is different.
Dolphin Freedom Platform announced the trial of the dolphin Splash in Marmaris Onmega Dolphin Park, which operates in Muğla’s Marmaris district, on July 24. This is the “dolphin death” in a short time.
While the Platform and the Animal Rights Watch Committee (JUDGE) made an announcement on the subject on 4 August, the repetitions of dolphin parks and captivity students in Turkey were reminded.
Dolphin parks in Turkey in nine questions…
1. Reasons for park dolphins?
Mortality rates in the living areas where dolphins live in parks, where it is difficult to attend the shows, are experienced at high levels. That’s why most park captivity nowadays replaces dolphins with those commonly caught in the wild.
A hypersocial mammal, according to the World Wide Fund for Nature, dolphins can mourn the death of a single dolphin in their entire lifetime. Whether or not they are from the ocean, all dolphins share equally and similarly if some parks use captive uses.
‘Therapy’ Depression in the parks, which you can use to benefit from its name under ‘indifference’ prevents animal rights defenders from learning the causes of death.
2. How many dolphin parks are there in Turkey?
There are nine dolphin parks in Turkey, two each in Antalya, Muğla and Istanbul, and one in Aydın.
With this number, it is the country with the most dolphin parks in Europe.
3. Dolphin parks with animal rights law?
no. In the Animal Protection Law, which was enacted on July 9, 2021, with the proposal of the AKP, the existing parks are planned to be open for 10 more years. The only thing prohibited with the proposal is to continue to increase the land and existing capacities of the new dolphin parks or to replace the missing ones with new ones.
But story from Freedom for Dolphins Platform is not like Yağcı. Yağcı said that the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has improved the animals and their species, and control anger whether new dolphins have been brought in: “It was said that the item would be removed six months after it was purchased. However, it has not been done yet. I was going to be put to “encourage”.
We are a world standard in animals. Yes, it does not allow new ones to be opened, but Turkey has the most dolphin parks in Europe. They didn’t even close the goals of opening a new one anyway. 10 more years of production. This means that they made the dolphin parks official with substance. While the municipality could cancel the licenses and close the parks, this article also blocked him.”
4. How do lack of control and regulation cover up dolphin deaths?
The Dolphins Freedom Platform is often thought of as such, although there are dubious estimates, as the dolphin Spni is mentioned in Marmaris Onmega Dolphin Park.
According to animal rights defenders, necropsy (post-mortem examination) is not applied to dolphins in parks by expert veterinarians. ‘adaptations for unlawful harmony’ There are villagers.
Yagci said: “We do not apply in parks built by dolphins, but always a veterinarian with proper necropsy. There are even visas for mismatched harmony with which the dolphin park is associated. Necropsies are not paid for marine loans.
There was a very sick and weak dolphin in Kemer. When we apply for him in time, he has to apply twice for the animal, two for three ‘Healthy’ she reported, but died two months later. There are two marine mammal patient physicians in Turkey. Unable to access the tools, users in the news that they will be removed because of them will reveal the profit, what will be shown. In general, the reports ‘Natural death’ to write. We were contacted by many people who worked in the installation before. a we were dispersed in the Parliament. ‘Reported as natural deaths’ saying.”
5. Are dead dolphins being replaced by new ones?
Being in the new law states that they are just reading the parks that are used for the first time, even if it prohibits capacity increase in current parks.
Dolphins Freedom Platform 2005-2017 (Dolphins Freedom Platform) (Dolphins on Animals, Animals and Plants in the open) 75 dolphins were imported, while the park was in the law commission, the total number of dolphins with the Parliament is 50. In other words, 25 dolphins are out in the open.
Yagci said: “Currently choosing animal numbers. Nothing is implemented to control the animal. We want and want the import-export sale of dolphins and other live dolphins to Turkey. ‘How many dolphins are in captivity in Turkey’, ‘Which parks have how many dolphins’, ‘What other marine mammals are there besides dolphins?’ There is no answer to any of them, because they do not audit. Even if they audit it, there is no situation to remove the appearances.”
6. What do animal rights advocates want?
Animal rights activists are very simple. It is intended to protect the unconditional use of all parks and performance facilities.
According to Yagci ‘dolphin parks are closed’ by AKP members before the animal rights book was published. “Dolphin parks banned” touted as: “Turkey is one of the biggest dolphin entertainment hosts in Europe, it will not be played. It is not intended for our use only for their preservation. They don’t do that.”
7. Which countries banned dolphin parks?
Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, the Republic of Cyprus, the Republic of Cyprus, Hungary, India, Nicaragua, Slovenia and Switzerland are among the countries that ban the use of dolphins, according to the tracking of the animals’ country.
French Environment Minister Barbara Pompili announced in 2020 that captive breeding of marine mammals in aquariums and water parks is prohibited. With an arrangement similar to the one in Turkey, Pompili had announced that seven to 10 dolphin parks in France would be closed and new ones could not be opened.
After the one in Turkey, they were planned to be taken away to be picked up from the municipalities in the plans in Turkey.
8. What happens to the animals after the parks are closed?
Dolphins that are in use around the world are being transferred to animal training centers that are kept open until today.
The first earth sanctuary for dolphins rescued from the Aegean region was established by the Arkipelagos Marine Conservation Institute on the island of Lipsi, close to the world’s island of Samos, off the sea of the world.
In the environment located in a small bay in the northern part of the island, safe transportation will be provided to the animals in and in the shelters.
Target in an area close to marine sites to be both shallow and deeper than the world’s largest dolphin city with minimal interference.
The dolphins will be tracked until an existing naturalistic approach will be kept under constant surveillance until they can reintroduce their hunting, then released back into their natural habitat, Anastasia Miliou, the educational institute’s research director, told the Greek Reporter.
Yağcı said that it is not used for anything other than buying a facility in Turkey.
He said the following about the Sisteman platform in systems in Greece: “The ministry in Turkey never undertakes such a thing. The place is not accepted anyway and dolphin donations are not accepted. Even if we provide these, which is not financially possible for us, our bracelet is tied to our arm.”
Yağcı is about considering a technology for marine assets in Turkey with seas on all sides. ‘lack’ He also added that.
9. Will the opposition be different from the government?
It is said that Yagci spoke of his hopeful basis in the new period from the Opposition, “We always defend the proposals of his words towards animals” said.
Yunus example in Turkey before AKP administration; The platform, which called for dolphin shows, the thematic aquarium concept and dairy permits to cut zoos in shopping malls together with the AKP, added to the dolphin parks in Muğla with the plans of the mayors of the CHP.
of civil society organizations ‘black stain’ Reminding that only HDP voted against the information in the law of rights, which he called as “the law of rights,” Yağcı continued as follows: “They told us that the most talked about ones are dolphin parks. We say that we have come together with us, including AKP deputies. ‘The dolphin park operators were here just before you. We’re getting you, of course it should be shut down.’ We offered a lot of suggestions, but the commercial ones were more dominant.”
