“In light of Sea World’s promises to end captive breeding programs and eventually, live performances, and the Baltimore Aquarium’s announcement they will allow their dolphins to go to a sanctuary–it seems like there is a significant shift in public opinion and policy toward marine animals.
This is very encouraging but there is long way between a promise and reality of freedom. I hope people will enthusiastically support these animals that cannot be directly released into the ocean because of their prior captivity. I want to thank and encourage those groups and individuals, especially the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, for daring so much to protect the whales and other marine animals from death and capture in the wild. We owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they do to protect the future.”
