nataschaelisa Climbed a volcano, watched the sunrise
Left home at 2am to drive two hours to hike up Mount Batur, reaching the top to watch the most incredible golden light across the mountain side. Low laying clouds reflecting on the water and foggy steam coming from the volcano. How lucky are we do be able to explore this earth #BEhealthytravel

nataschaelisa UPDATE: Today we received a response from the Minister! Thank you to everyone who has supported so far - all 350k of you!
In saying that this is only the beginning - please continue to sign, share, post or even chat about this issue. There are currently 72 wild dolphins in captivity in Indonesia. If they are not in resort pools such as WAKE they are being used in the traveling circus, transported by truck from town to town, starved to make them perform for food in a blow up pool, pulled back into a truck via tarp and on to the next town. This is NOT ok.
If we speak for those without a voice, and we influence those in power we can end Dolphin captivity in Indonesia #FREEBALIDOLPHINS

nataschaelisa This is the Karimun Jawa rehabilitation center which was set up by @jaan_indonesia & @dolphin_project in close proximity to the captured dolphins’ original habitat.
This center is the first permanent facility in the world to rehabilitate & release dolphins back into the wild and was set up to help dolphins illegally captured in the area to readapt again to their natural environment.

This is where we want to see the four dolphins at WAKE along with the total of 72 #Dolphins who are currently being used across Indonesia for resort entertainment as well as the traveling circus.
We hope that the petition (linked in my bio) along with media attention will see the government permitting the release of these abused animals. Let's get these Dolphins back to the ocean! #FREEBALIDOLPHINS

nataschaelisa UPDATE:
I took this footage when I first found the Dolphins. These Dolphins are longing for the ocean. They are held captive and this is torture. This is truly heartbreaking.
The manager of WAKE Bali spoke out yesterday telling the press that they have not broken the law by keeping these dolphins in a tiny pool for entertainment purposes. FACT: The dolphins were captured illegally. The manager may not know about the illegal trade of wild dolphins here in Indonesia. The conditions that these dolphins are kept in are horrific and unfortunately this establishment is only one of the MANY resorts keeping wild dolphins in these disgusting conditions. These four dolphins are testament to all of the other Dolphins who also need our help!!! WAKE’s phone lines and website are now down thanks to all of your support in this! We need to continue to contact all resorts and circus’s operating in Bali and do the same (if you know of any please leave information in the comments below & I will publish a collective list)
@Jaan_indonesia and @richardobarry have a rehabilitation center in Central Java the same area where the Dolphins originally and illegally captured. Once we win the fight we aim to have these and other captive dolphins taken to this rehabilitation center to be treated and readapted.
LET’S CONTINUE THE FIGHT! With the help of local organizations and every single one of you who have signed the petition (linked in my profile), reposted and spread awareness we can stop tourists supporting this industry, without an industry there will be no reason for these dolphins to be captured, taken from their natural habitat & kept in these horrible places for the greed of humans. Together we can #FREEBALIDOLPHINS

nataschaelisa UPDATE:
These four Dolphins held captive at WAKE Bali need to be rehabilitated before they can survive in the wild. Our goal is to get these dolphins to the Dolphin Rehabilitation Center where they can be treated and adapt to their natural environment again. They cannot survive in their current state. An overwhelming amount of people are asking how we can help these Dolphins. AWARENESS is the best way you can help! Sign the petition on my profile & repost!!! Tag your friends, share on social media! Global awareness and education causes CHANGE! Together we can change the future for animals in captivity, every signature, every share, every repost is bringing us one step closer to FREEDOM #freebalidolphins

nataschaelisa These are two of the four wild dolphins who are trapped in a tiny pool facing the ocean at a resort on Keramas Beach called WAKE Bali. I laid by the edge of the chlorinated water watching them they were still and almost lifeless. As they noticed me they came right up to me and started to cry. Seeing them like this and hearing them is absolutely heartbreaking.
I am so overwhelmed and thankful to everyone who has been reposting and sharing & for the 100k people who have already helped us by signing the petition which is linked in my profile. Thank you again for all of your signatures and reposts. Let's get these dolphins rescued and rehabilitated! @modelsofcompassion

nataschaelisa This is one of the four wild dolphins who have been held for over a year in this tiny pool at WAKE resort in Bali, they can literally see the ocean. This was absolutely heart breaking to see today. Please help by signing the change.org petition linked in my profile #dolphins #keramasbeach #bali #behuman #freebalidolphins 3w

nataschaelisa After seeing and signing a petition on change.org last week about 4 wild dolphins being held in a small pool in Bali for tourist entertainment I went to see them myself and it was absolutely heart breaking... I laid with them for a while and they swam up to me and cried. I have video of the dolphins on my snapchat 'nataschaelisa'. Please sign the @changedotorg petition linked on my profile @modelsofcompassion 3w

Please note @Komune does not have dolphins in their pool! This venue is 100% cruelty free, with yoga, an organic garden and best of all - pool toys! More resorts like this please!
