The Vancouver Aquarium and other marine parks will tell you that they are against the killing of dolphins in drive hunts. But we do not hear them say that they are against the capture of dolphins in drive hunts. On one hand they condemn the practice that sees hundreds of dolphins murdered in pools of blood as their family members look on, yet on the other, they not only fail to denounce, but actively fuel the captive trade that is the sole reason this insane slaughter continues.
For this poor FKW, we hope and pray that he grows stronger and healthier as the days progress, and that one day he will be returned to his ocean home.
In the meantime, we must not forget: every captive dolphin has a connection to "The Cove."
----------------- WE NEED YOUR HELP:
On July 26, the Vancouver Park Board will hold hearings on the future of cetacean captivity at Vancouver Aquarium.
Tell the Mayor and Commissioners that cetacean captivity is not acceptable in the "Greenest City on Earth."
