Criminal Cetaceans

The Vancouver Public Aquarium has been incarcerating cetacea for life, often in solitary, in cells so small they can barely turn around. Dolphins in the wild range over 80.47 km (50 miles) each day. The captives have committed no crime. The aquarium staff justified this injustice because it was educational for children. It would be much more educational to view these animals in the wild. The aquarium staff seem to think of cetaceans as sea cattle they can abuse as they please, not intelligent creatures with brains bigger than theirs. Thankfully the Vancouver Parks board has said enough.
