Captive dolphins moved from Barcelona to Greece

Barcelona Zoo

The three remaining bottlenose dolphins held at Barcelona Zoo have been moved to Attica Zoological Park in Greece.

The move means there are now no dolphins held in Barcelona, following a decision by the city council in 2018 to ban the construction of any more dolphinaria.

It was hoped that the authorities would look at the option of retiring the dolphins to a suitable marine sanctuary rather than move them to another facility. WDC, through our coalition with Dolphinaria-Free Europe, we will now redouble our efforts and work with colleagues in Spain and Greece to address this worrying new development.

Find out more about how we are working the end captivity.
