This isn’t a new video, but the Women for Whales posted it on Facebook today. And I’m so glad that I happened to see it.
Here’s what I saw. I saw life at its purest, most self-expressed. I saw freedom. I saw play. I saw love and family and glee.
This is what dolphins do when they are in control of their own lives. They dance. They hold hands. They flap their fins in some kind of gleeful signal. All in the wide open ocean.
Shame on the Georgia Aquarium, SeaWorld, Miami Seaquarium, Marineland, Resorts World Sentosa, and all dolphinaria and aquaria for capturing and enslaving a creature who deserves to be free and in control of his or her own life.
If something stirred in you, like a sense of your own freedom, and how precious it is to be free and fully self-expressed, please contact Save Japan Dolphins, the Oceanic Preservation Society, Free the Atlanta 11, Save Misty the Dolphin on Facebook or Saddest Dolphins.com (I’m sure there are many others, too) to find out how to make a difference in the lives of dolphins today, and forever.
Become part of a growing community that celebrates and demands self-determination and freedom for these extraordinary creatures.
