Dolphins swim in the Nizuc Aquatic Park
in the Caribbean resort of Cancun,
Mexico on July 22, 2003.
The park bought 28 South Pacific bottlenose dolphins from the anarchy-torn Solomon Islands and flew them to Mexico on a DC-10 jet early this morning. Environmentalists fear the dolphins could have suffered trauma from being uprooted from their natural habitat and also could potentially infect local Mexican dolphins with new diseases.
