Australian marine park faces court case over advertising claims

A marine park in Australia, Coff’s Harbour Dolphin Marine Magic, is being taken to court over its advertising claims that dolphins held at the park are “happy and healthy”.

Animal welfare charity, Australia for Dolphins, claims that the public are being misled under Australian consumer law and that the dolphins suffer from stress and the risk of early death.

The case will now be heard in the Federal Circuit Court. Five bottlenose dolphins are currently held at the park.
