  2. Que pouvons-nous faire de plus pour aider les bélugas de Marineland ?
    Une loi qui prtègerais les animaux dans les zoos qui leurs garantissent des vétérinaires et des soigneurs et plus d'espace en attendant leur inerdiction en captivité ?

    What can we do to help beluga marineland Me?
    A law that prtègerais animals in zoos which guarantee their veterinarians and groomers and more space awaiting inerdiction in captivity?

  3. Happy to learn today that based on her understanding of the science, Sen. Elaine McCoy (Alberta) intends to support the bill (in other words, she supports ending the captivity of whales and dolphins). Thank you, Senator McCoy!
