Update on February 27, 2013
I cannot thank you all enough for helping us to reach - and even exceed! - our fundraising goal.
Because of your donations, the Federation of Indian Animal Protection Organizations is able to continue their important campaign to keep the captive dolphin industry out of the nation for good.
Just last week, the FIAPO submitted a petition to the Central Zoo Authority. This petition is designed to get the CZA to take a stance against captivity. Once this passes, FIAPO will then petition the Ministry of Environment and Forests for a total ban on captivity, which will make it nearly impossible for any dolphinarium, dolphin aquarium, or zoo featuring dolphins to set up shop.
Stay tuned, as we will keep you updated on this important campaign. None of this would be possible without you - so THANK YOU!
