First and only dolphinarium in Armenia closed

PanARMENIAN.Net - The first and only dolphinarium in Armenia has been closed following completion of its operation term.

The dolphinarium building is currently being dismantled, with dolphins taken back to Ukraine after the last performance on February 9, the dolfinarium director Lilit Sahakyan told PanARMENIAN.Net

Ever since its opening, the dolphinarium activity had been widely criticized by ecologists who suggested that dolphins weren't provided with normal conditions and could go blind because of chlorinated water.
