Re: Turning the tide at the Vancouver Aquarium, by Shelley Fralic, front page, June 9

Shelley Fralic gives the Vancouver Aquarium credit for initiatives that organizations have undertaken for years without captive wildlife. Beach cleanups, establishment of marine protected areas, promoting sustainable foods and more has been done by many, many NGOs, businesses and government agencies.

The aquarium's slick public relations and marketing led it to press the green buttons to survive.

Its imprisonment of orcas hasn't taught people to respect marine mammals and to protect oceans. Rather, we can thank the organizations that oppose captivity for educating the public about the plight of animals in the aquarium and in the wild. In addition, nature films gave people true insight into complex ecosystems.

What has the aquarium taught its customers? Judging by the oohing and aahing at the beluga birth, obviously not respect. Just dominance over other species for selfish amusement. Aquariums and zoo menager-ies are part of a species-ist past. The turning tide must be to protect wildlife in its natural habitats.
