There are harbour porpoises in an aquarium in Denmark, I think.

They have two porpoises called Egil and Freya mostly for research purposes. these two were saved from drowning in gill nets

Okay, I will be shocked if this works!
The center has two porpoises there for research. They had three for a while, but I think they released the third one back into the wild. The porpoises are trained to do simple behaviours like small target jumps, come out on a small slide-out and do medical check-ups. I was lucky enough to get to go backstage and meet them, they were very cute!
