Personally...I think this is a great idea:

"
The government of India has officially recognized the “personhood” of dolphins, a move that will force the closure of planned dolphin parks across the country.
After Hungary, Costa Rica and Chile, India is now the fourth country in the world to ban the capture and importation of dolphins for commercial entertainment. India’s move is in accordance to the Declaration of Rights for Cetaceans conceived by a number of scientists and philosophers, which affords cetaceans (whales, orcas, dolphins, etc.) with the same ethical considerations as human beings."
