Since the creation of this blog, I’ve focused on sharing international facts about captivity. I’ve tried to write about every important subject (captures, Taiji, breeding programmes, trial, etc.)
But, I wanted to create this blog to study more seriously the French marine parks. The recent death of the dolphin named Ecume (in English, Sea Foam) at Marineland, Antibes, seemed to me the perfect occasion to get going on that subject. [Foam died on February 26th, after 28 years at Marineland. She was part of the group of dolphins featuring in the Luc Besson movie Le Grand Bleu]
In January, I worked on the French translation of Ric O’Barry’s guide to dolphin activism.
Now that I have written about the basics of cetaceans captivity, I thought it was about time to do more, like the guide suggested.
I thought it was about time to make my own research and do my own investigations.
Thus, I hope you will understand that I won’t be writing as much as I used to. Research takes time, just like writing an article (because I make sure to get the facts right).
This being said, you can still count on me to let you know every time there will be important news.
One last thing, THANK YOU. Thank you all to take time to read my articles and thank you all for your support. 🙂
