Retire Cancer Stricken Elderly Dolphin From Marine Park

Dolphin Australia for Dolphins

Target: Paige Sinclair, CEO of Dolphin Marine Magic

Goal: Retire Bucky, an elderly dolphin with cancer, to an accredited sanctuary.

Dolphin Marine Magic is a marine park located in Australia that is currently forcing a 47-year-old dolphin ridden with cancer to perform daily. The dolphin, named Bucky, is the star of the show and sometimes performs two to three times a day.

Dolphins typically live between 40 and 50 years. At 47, Bucky is at the human equivalent of 80 years old. In addition, a veterinarian noticed lumps in Bucky’s mouth which were later confirmed as cancer. In his poor health, Bucky is still forced to jump through hoops, do flips in the air and drag people across pools.

Sign this petition and demand Bucky is retired to an accredited sanctuary. He does not have much time left, however we could make it the best time of his life.


Dear Ms. Sinclair,

Currently, your facility holds a dolphin, named Bucky, who is 47 years old and sick with cancer. As you probably know, dolphins typically live between 40 and 50 years. At 47, this puts Bucky at the human equivalent of 80 years old.

It is unacceptable, cruel and selfish of you to continue forcing Bucky to perform shows daily, including doing flips, jumping through hoops ad dragging people across pools. Bucky does not have much time left and he deserves to rest for his remaining days.

If you truly care about these animals, then you already know what is best for Bucky. Please retire him to an accredited sanctuary where he can happily live out the rest of his days.

  1. It is past time to retire Bucky and get him medical care. If he is terminal, at least get him some pain relief, or does he mean that little to you?

  2. Bev Woodburn says:

    Come on Australia. Retire this precious Dolphin Bucky for his short life that remains.
    Australia you must stop the atrocities that are allowed to be committed against our Wildlife and the Wild Water Birds that are murdered by gun happy monsters in Victoria. The Andrew’s Government of Victoria has a lot to answer to for the unimaginable atrocities he allows to continue committed against the Wildlife, by sucking up to the Gun Lobbyists.

  3. Kae Blecha, OTR says:

    Perfect Karma would be for this Paige person to get mouth cancer and then be forced to keep working because it would benefit others. I’m in health care; I don’t say this lightly.
