Dolphin Project Italia has offered to take the Finland Four. Even their marine life rescue center is not really a dolphin sanctuary, it could become one pretty easily. This is a newly-formed group in the area of Sirolo, Italy. It’s known as “The Pearl of the Adriatic.”
I was there recently to help them find a suitable seaside location in a national park. The location we chose will work fine for the rescue and rehabilitation of aquatic life in the Adriatic Sea. Primarily, dolphins, turtles and seabirds.
There are also about 300 bottlenose dolphins in the area. They live in ten pods with about 30 dolphins in each pod. Sometimes they get into trouble and need help — same with turtles and seabirds. Dolphin Project Italia was set up to deal with this situation. Rehabilitation and release back into the pristine Adriatic Sea.
The location chosen for the center could also accommodate four or five captive dolphins. It wasn’t set up as a “retirement center” but it could accommodate the Finland Four. Portable recycled fish farm apparatus is common in Europe. [...]
