Abstract: Captivity of marine marnmals built long been a subject of controversy. Although care and treatment are two main issues with captivity, my thesis focuses on the quality and design of the habitat. Delphinidae is the largest group of whales currently held in captivity. They include dolphins, orcas or killer whales, and other rnelon-headed whales. It is difficult to decipher what a 'proper' habitat is, but it should take into account animal size, activity level, socialization, and meet the animal's anatomical and sensory needs. The pool should be rounded and large enough to allow for swimming at fast speeds (25mph), have environmental enrichment to stimulate cognitive thinking and induce play, and have other features to reduce stress in captivity.
