Do they have enough room in there Dad?
We went to Seaworld. I’m generally torn on Zoos, but it is wonderful to see dolphins and whales up close, they’re amazing. Are the benefits of scientific study, the rescue work they do and increased public interest enough to offset keeping whales and dolphins in captivity? I dunno. People are pretty worked up over Seaworld right now, and I get it. The one sad polar bear they had made my want to cry. I do tend to think though that more people should also be worked up over slaughter of endangered animals on a larger scale by poachers than the ones in captivity. I’m not sure Seaworld is the biggest problem. We as an online culture tend to jump on bandwagons as they appear in our newsfeed. But awareness is always a good thing and who am I to prioritize change.
Anyway, too deep for this blog. Here’s Grace making a face. She liked the dolphins and dismissed my moral arguments with a loud “bah!”
