According to one of the activists, the dolphins belonged to a company located in Sanur. Previously, the mammals had been shown to tourists.

According to him, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry has put up a banner stopping dolphin demonstration activities in captivity.

The Ministry of Environment and Forestry has delegated Bali Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) to relocate the dolphins. But for one year after being closed, the dolphins are still in the same location.
