Thanks for the Dolphin story. Interesting reading and nice to know the Mexican Goverment has those laws on the books.
I have often read your remarks about the cruel conditions that exist in a swim with dolphins attraction in Ixtap and your calls for a boycott. I completly agree that these attractions should be outlawed. But what happens to these poor creatures after these attractions are closed down ether by law or boycott?
What I found particulary interesting in the Toronto article is that these people were not just giving lip service to the problem. They are taking respoinsibility for these animals, not just arbitrarily setting them free to perish.
These people went out and did the real leg work to raise $100,000 to assure these creatures survived their efforts to free them. Now that's really caring.
