    For decades, SW had us convinced that it was fun for a whale to live at an amusement park. (Not to mention safe.)

    It’s not the 1970’s anymore. Information is more available today and attitudes are changing. More people are stepping away from the crowds and deciding they’re not going to support that kind of entertainment any more.
    From an "entertainment" standpoint... no... whales in particular need more room. Dolphins, even wild ones, will actually "learn" tricks for the fun of it, but whales are different.

    From an educational standpoint... yes... it is difficult to convince a generation that a species is "worth" protecting if they never see it. Zoos and aquariums act as ambassadors of the animal species. Sea World in particular has collections that rival many aquariums...

    End cetacean captivity everywhere. Don't buy a ticket.
