Captive Cetaceans

By keeping cetaceans with brains bigger than theirs cooped up for years the Vancouver aquarium staff proved to me they were interested only in the well-being and education of humans. They had almost no interest in the interest of the cetaceans. They treated them like cattle rather than the highly intelligent, highly social animals they are. I don’t believe their argument for rescuing and keeping cetaceans in captivity was sincere. They were just looking for a backdoor way to get new animals for display. Thankfully the Vancouver Parks board has said enough.
