Re: “Our Favorite Places

The Georgia Aquarium is my least favorite place. Lots of money spent creating an attraction that is based in captivity of marine mammals, which shortens the animals lifespan and provides an amusement for a day for most folks. The folks who would be truly interested in those animals would find them more interesting in their natural habitat.

Re: “That poor baby beluga died

If one wanders into this issue without much history, there is much to learn. One is that many people, including Dr. Marino, have dealt with the issue of marine mammal captivity for many years. Here is a report by a group initiated when a dolphin named Misty was being held in deplorable conditions. For the mothers: http://savemistythedolphin.blogspot.com/20…

Re: “That poor baby beluga died

I'll just add my comment to yours, ride your coat-tails, as it were. I didn't notice that Dr. Marino's comments rec'd dislikes. Guess I'm not surprised. Hey, Buckhead, go have a beer.

Aside from the captivity "controversy" among the beer drinkers, I think it worth noting that the Georgia Aquarium surpassed its own mark on crassness at the passing of the baby beluga:

Re: “Protesters arrested at Emory University after demanding research chimp's release to sanctuary

Having read some of the comments, I now have a suspicion that those opposed to abortion could care less about a living, breathing animal's right to live the life for which they were born. Which is not to be a laboratory subject for humans.

Re: “Baby beluga, don't die

Here's my blog on the AJC piece that was posted today. Ugh. http://coveblueforjiyu.com/2012/05/21/baby…

Re: “Baby beluga, don't die

You're not alone. There are others out here who grieve for the beluga mother who was bred to birth in captivity.

Feel free to come to a protest to demand that the dolphins and whales at the Georgia Aquarium be rehabilitated and released. The Minnesota Aquarium is closing it dolphin display and the National Aquarium has closed its dolphin show (but retaining dolphins in an exhibit). Marine mammals in an aquarium is an outdated process.

My phone musta been busy. Oh, no, wait. I was busy sawing logs.
