The reason reason I don't know the correct number of captive sea lions at CW, is because I do not support CW in their efforts to create a dolphinarium in the VI and no longer visit the facility since they applied for their permit. It's bad enough that they had 2 sea lions to begin with. The fact that they have more is too depressing.
I have friends that work at CW and while they are against the proposed dolphinarium and marine mammals in captivity, in general, they cannot speak out if they wish to retain their jobs.

Which would lead many to question the real substance of their objection.

If Coral World hadn't rescued the sea lions, they would be dead. In many areas sea lions are considered a nuisance, and are being slaughtered. Google it.

I can't verify what Coral World is saying about their dolphins is true, but it looks like they are getting dolphins that were born in captivity so dolphins must be mating. What to do with those dolphins born in habitats? Release them and their parents into the wild? The parents have learned to rely on humans for food and may not be able to teach their offspring how to survive.

We imprison humans daily and take away their freedom, yet some fight for freedom for a select few animals like dolphins and whales? Sorry, but at some point, all creatures on this earth will suffer somehow. That's life as we know it. And there are many forms of suffering.

Think that was called slavery as it applied to humans being bred into a life of captivity.

Part of the CW dolphinarium plans incorporates a breeding pen.
As enlightened humans, we should not be subjugating any sentient species for profit, to their detriment, just because we can.
I think you all are aware of my strong feelings against marine mammals in captivity.

We should move this discussion on the under the coconut tree forum if you wish to continue.

I would pay myself on the back based on the resounding review my post got but I would rather talk about comparing human beings bought and sold as property to Dolphins but I.Can't.Even
