The movie Blackfish put the free orca campaign on a mainstream level and caused many things to change, such as the cancellation of orca shows and stopped the breeding program; however, what are we going to do with the Orcas in a small concrete tank. Lori Marino, a neuroscientist, has proposed an alternative that is backed by a dream team of scientists and advocates from all over the world.
Lori is the Founder and President of The Whale Sanctuary Project, which provides an alternative to captive Orca habitat. However, there must be evidence to prove that the Orcas are do not belong in captivity. How about Chronic Stress?
Lori and co-authors wrote a paper to demonstrate the effects of chronic stress on cetaceans in captivity. We discuss the paper as well as some plans for the whale sea-side sanctuaries.
