Jane Goodall Speaks Out: “Dolphin and Whale Captivity Must End.”

It must end for all cetaceans, says Jane: belugas, dolphins, porpoises — not just orcas.

It must all end, says Jane: not just captures—breeding and performing programs, too.

To quote from her letter to the Vancouver Park Board and Vancouver Aquarium:

“The phasing out of such cetacean programs is the natural progression of human-kind’s evolving view of our non-human animal kin.”
