I have voted 4 the end of this captive program, strongly believing that cetaceans do not belong to captivity where they suffer while they can be studied in the wild.

Of course Ms. Goodall thinks it is cruel. she, unlike the aquarium has a sense of ethics and cares about the lives of animals. I say that for anyone thinking of putting sea animals such as whalers and dolphins into tanks it would be good to put these people into closets and let them get feel for what it must be like for the animals. Imagine living in an ocean and yet having to live in a small tank because it will be small not matter what size it is in comparison to their natural habitat.

It doesn't matter what they do with their blood money. Those animals are suffering their whole lives and it needs to stop.
