Over the last few years, we’ve been watching the sun set on the practice of keeping whales, dolphins and porpoises — or cetaceans — in captive displays.

In Canada, there are only two facilities that still undertake this cruel practice: Marineland — a for-profit amusement park currently in court answering to 11 animal cruelty charges and no longer accredited within the industry — and Vancouver Aquarium, whose landlord has voted 6-1 to ban the import and display of cetaceans on its land.

  1. I have mixed feelings about this ban at the Vancouver aquarium because the aquarium serves as a rescue site for injured whales and dolphins much like the Salt Spring sanctuary helps injured seals and sea lions.
