|Becky, I think about the balance of keeping animals in captivity I love going to the Zoo's, Sea World and the Aquariums. I believe that programs like those are wonderful in promoting wildlife conservation. When people come in contact with animals it makes them care more about what happens to them. You get more laws protecting them and the environment they live in. Especially as we seem to move farther away from the outside world and closer to the inside world viewing nature more from TV and computers. It is hard to make children (the next generation) care about the environment when they don't come in contact with it. Many of the animals now in captivity have never known a free roaming life but they still have those instincts and I can't help but feel for them at the same time.
No funny to say I have never dove in Fl. and I haven't done Wreck Diving either. Mostly due to the lack of a Dive Partner. My DH Ric can't dive he has no eardrums and the sea water just flows in though the ear canal and into his sinuses he has trouble just snorkeling. My old dive partner J doesn't dive anymore.
