Subject: WDCS Sci/Captivity Report

The Whale and Dolphin Conservation recently posted a message announcing the
availability of a new report "A Review of the Scientific Justifications for
Maintaining Cetaceans in Captivity". May 1998. Sue Mayer.
We have now sent out over 200 copies of this to MARMAM members. We intend
to publish this report and would like to include comments from the
scientific and conservation community within the report. Therefore, anyone
with comments please could they send them by the end of September. We may
also create a discussion web-page on the report. WDCS will obviously seek
permission from individuals before we publish.
Please send comments to
Many thanks and we look forward to any responses.
