The Marine Mammal Protection Act was enacted in 1972 to protect any and all marine mammals from U.S. citizens who might want to take them or import them. The Georgia Aquarium, SeaWorld and Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium are working to try to import the 18 Russian beluga whales that they captured between the years of 2005 to 2011.
Yippee! My favorite cetacean! When I was in high school I went on a dolphin studies program in Belize, and for the final project we had to chose any cetacean and give a presentation on them. I chose the narwhal and have been smitten ever since.
Once again, the middle of the week has rolled around and I find my self having an abysmally low level of motivation as my finals inch ever closer. So what better way to distract myself than with dolphin sex! Dolphins are known for getting frisky quite often, because everyone knows that darlin’ it’s better down where it’s wetter, take it from me!
