Dr. Naomi Rose of the Animal Welfare Institute, world renowned cetacean expert, visits Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean World in China in 2019 and discusses in depth her experience of the welfare of Orcas, Belugas, and all other marine mammals there. As co-author of published scientific paper “The Case Against Marine Mammals in Captivity“, Dr. Rose is a leading authority on why cetaceans can not possibly thrive in a marine park environment. She is an active advocate for the end of cetacean captivity and a spokesperson for CCA during her tours of China.

Dr.Naomi A. Rose visited 3 typical aquariums (Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, Grandview Aquarium and Haichang Polar Ocean World-Chengdu) in China mainland during 4th-7th December 2016.


China Cetacean Alliance carried out an investigation of marine theme parks in Mainland China from Oct 2014 to Sep 2015. The captive environments are really bad for all cetaceans and all of them cannot thrive in captivity and have miserable lives. Please have a look of the video and from now on don’t buy a ticket to visit all marine theme parks and dolphinaria in the world. The money you pay them is supporting wild capture, captive breeding and the continuation of the painful lives of all cetacean in captivity.
