After the fourth dolphin died at Dolphinaris Arizona in the last sixteen months, more than 200 people gathered Saturday morning to protest the attraction and push for change.

"Dolphins are sentient beings. They shouldn't be interacting with people. They should be swimming for hundreds of miles free in the ocean. This is just wrong," Acevedo said.
