Kas's dolphin park closed after protests

After an outcry over the treatment of its dolphins, Kas Dolphin Park has been closed and its two inhabitants moved to another location.

The dolphins were originally brought to Kas for rehabilitation but were kept at the Kas Dolphin Park, an entertainment centre.



Turkish writer Buket Uzuner started a petition through Change.org which quickly attracted 20,000 signatures  and sparked protests throughout Turkey and the world. The signatures were presented to the municipality by the non-government organisations Freedom for Dolphins Platform and WWF Turkey.

During the presentation Uzuner said that Kas should be a dolphin paradise, not a prison.

Kas Underwater Association spokesperson Belma Tosun said the move is extremely positive. "We hope that this process will be an example for other Turkish cities that have dolphin parks."

Kas Dolphin Park is gradually being dismantled.
