    My daughter wrote a report for science class when she was in 7th grade about 2 years ago that was about something current in the news at the time. She wrote her report about how the New Dolphinaris was a bad idea and would be hazardous to the Dolphins. She got an A on that report at the time and everything she identified as bad for the dolphins has sadly come true.

    They can't say they were not warned. Plenty of scientists pointed out that Dolphins breathe air. And, putting them in the middle of a desert next to a freeway would expose them to microbes and toxins their species never have to deal with in nature.

    It was highly predictable this would go poorly. It was predicted. And, that was ignored.

    These people should be out of business. Period.

    Returned just like they arrived.

    Dolphinaris should be ashamed of ever opening.

    I guess "Dolphin Death Sentence Aquarium" didn't gain any traction in the new name selection.

    Arizona boardwalk? What a strange name choice.

    Odd that they're based in Mexico? They still have several locations.

    They were just tenants next to the aquarium. The aquarium has never had dolphins.

    It just seemed weird to name the country where it was based as some sort of worthy detail. I doubt your intention was derogatory.

    As far as "just tenants" goes:

    I guess I'm not exactly sold on the clean separation of the two entities based on Kel's post.
