Protection of endanger species or any other animals should be kept in small space for the entertainment of humans they should be observed in their own habitat not one made for them that do not provide the space that can give them the freedom of movement they should have to survive in. I am sorry if I missed the signing this Petition which is not like me.

I must have signed when it was open-I hope I didn't miss it. Those who enslave orcas and dolphins should be made to live in closets (at the very least) because that must be what it is like to be a dolphin in captivity. Animals are not commodities for the entertainment of humans.

The petition is no longer active but the topic is so I may have signed previously.

This weekend, there was a protest at the Vancouver Aquarium about the keeping of captive whales and dolphins, particularly beuga whales who have not fared well in captivity. One woman interviewed on the radio said that she had not known about the protest but had come to the Aquarium to see the exhibits. She was so sickened that she left and joined the protesters. There were also other protests across the country including Marineland in Ontario..

Too stressful to read,the captions says it all. ALL aquariums/zoos should be closed! No need to trap & isolate these creatures. Human cruel intervention = Pain, misery,lonliness & finally death all for the sake of making a quick buck! Remember Keiko from Free Willy,sad lonely life & death. May all who are involved in capturing & keeping wild creatures of any sort for their miserable entertainment be cursed!
