#R2BC Thursday’s #GoodNews

Hubble may be looking further than before but we live on a world with a water across most of its surface, much of which remains unexplored. I’m a great fan of conservation and the great work done by zoos and aquariums around the world, but I am smiling today as we Sea World will no longer be breeding Orca. As the largest species of dolphin, used to living and hunting in family groups, feeding on whales and being a serious apex predators we do not have the facilities to humanely keep this magnificent animals.

With increasing numbers of marine reserves being created I look forward to the days when we can observe these amazing animals in their natural environment, entertained by how magnificent they are and not just because we can train them to jump for fish.
