Reality Check:
No matter what people say and do it is as GOD WILLS IT!!!
And if GOD does not like something he will make it be known!!
Remeber we are all living on a melting pot of a planet, the core of the planet is as hot as the sun and who is protecting us, God!!!

You can do all the wrong you want, but don't forget that when the time come when you are DYING, you can not ask God to forgive you for all the Cruelty that you have inflicted on his Creation because he will NOT listen!

And if you do not believe in God, then the more fool you!!

Only do to other living beings what you yourself is prepared to experience! Captivity is cruelty as these animals are meant to be all free in their own natural surroundings. This is where we are to enjoy their beauty & majestic awe's of those marine animals. We as humans do not have God given rights to control another's life! We are all put here free to live life as we are meant to in freedom & harmony! Those who choose to control, exploit, abuse, kill, hunt in all other forms are from evils! Thanks Jill.

'rehab and release' is what all facilities should be used for in this day and age, YES!!

Noted, Jill and thanks for the video. As a midwesterner, I don't get the opportunity to enjoy these creatures swimming in the wild, but I would much rather they be somewhere where they are free and happy, than held in small pools and taught to do tricks for the enjoyment of the public.

Thanks so much for the wonderful movie. It is very powerful and will have a huge impact on people and their perceptions of dolphins and whales as 'entertainment'. I have only seen dolphins in the wild in Mexico and Belize and would never go for an activity like "swimming with dolphins" because I believe that it is exploiting them and forcing them to do something against their nature to amuse us. Subjecting them to a life in a small pool is like a prison sentence with inadequate stimulation. This movie explains the issues very clearly. Some parts of it made me cry and the capture methods are as cruel and violent as those used to capture the wild mustangs in North America. I hope that this movie makes a lot of people think deeply about the plight of marine animals.

I'm sorry Ruth, but that contradicts everything I was taught about your God...I heard he always listens to those who ask for forgiveness..I guess there are a lot of contradictions in Christian teachings and thought

Noted; thank you very much for sharing, Jill. I will put a link to this movie on my page, and will help spread the word. If the only thing said was that we hurt these animals by holding them in captivity, it should be self-eloquent enough. Such places must be shunned and should be shut down. Cetaceans are so beautiful, so intelligent, so playful, so harmless (to man)... Let us free them and let them swim and sing their songs in their oceanic home.

Thanks for the movie, Jill!! Won't comment on the last line of Ruth's comment. I'll get into hot water. Long live Buddhism!!

One of the MOST TOUCHING EXPERIENCE to me was: having the rare honor to stay 5 meters close to a Mum Humpack Whale with her "Baby" who remained STILL with their heads out of the water... watching us curiously and... "talking" of us, for 10 minutes.... .Some tears were on my face.... This happened in Bar Harbor, Maine. Also the Captain of the boat confessed that in his 30 years experience he NEVER happened to attend a scene like that!!!!!!!!!! Some years after, I went back to Bar Harbor but nothing like that happened. Whales were only very far from the boat & didn't approach the boat....

This movie NEEDS TO BE SEEN in theaters. At the end of the move, before the credits, 'How would you like to be taken from your family, to spend the rest of you life, in captivity, preforming stupid tricks?' should scroll across the screen.

We should be in awe of our wild creatures. We should respect and cherish their freedom and wildness, instead of this power crazy attitude that we have the right to imprison and observe all that is different. To hold wild marine creatures captive is beyond cruel.
