Maui County Captive Cetacean Ban

Pacific Whale Foundation believes that whales and dolphins are highly intelligent marine mammals that should not be kept in captivity for the purpose of entertainment.

In 2002, Maui County made incredible strides on behalf of whales and dolphins by passing a county wide ban on the display of captive cetaceans.

Pacific Whale Foundation is proud to have been a part of this campaign, and now uses Maui's example to help end captivity around the world.
