A Barcelo Maya Dolphin Dies Days After Deja Voom Festival

Bassnectar’s Deja Voom festival in Riviera Maya, Mexico reached a rather depressing conclusion. One of the dolphins held in captivity at the Barcelo Maya resort has reportedly died.

In a report from Dolphin Freedom MX, it was shared that a dolphin named Plata at the Barcelo resort passed away. Furthermore, the cause of death has not been released for the public. However, Plata has had serious problems with his eyesight due to the extremely brutal Mexican weather.

Earlier this week, Your EDM published an exposé on the resort and both Bassnectar’s and Odesza’s complicit support of animal cruelty by hosting their events at the location. As an effort to highlight the atrocities committed by those involved. Now, those atrocities have resulted in a very real and alarming consequence.

From Barcelo.com

“All local residents of Quintana Roo to join us for a protest this Saturday outside Dolphinaris Riviera Maya Park at 3 pm.” (5 minutes from Puerto Aventuras)
