In response to widespread protests and an on-line petitions, Garuda Indonesia has promised to review its policy of transport  for live dolphins.

More than 1,400 people signed a petition threatening to boycott the Indonesian national carrier for facilitating the shipment of dolphins used in sea circuses across Indonesia.

Quoted in The Jakarta Globe, Garuda’s corporate secretary, Pudjobroto, said: “Garuda is committed to environment preservation, including dolphins. Garuda will review the policy on transporting live animals, including dolphins.”



Garuda recently shipped two live dolphins on a flight to Jakarta from Bali on Saturday, July 14, 2012 on board GA 411. The dolphins originated from a controversial sea circus operating from a public parking lot in Kuta, Bali.

Femke den Haas of the Jakarta Animal Aid Network said: “The dolphins traveled in small crates together with sea-lions and otters, all animals exploited in the travel show.”

Labeling the method shipment as inhumane, den Haas said the shipping containers were too small and toxic to the animals.
