Stop promoting the captivity of marine mammals

Cetaceans are complex, intelligent animals. They have social habits and methods of communication that are developed and used for their survival in the wild. Captivity is not only a limitation to their freedom but also to their ability to be social. The methods used to capture marine mammals are inhumane, resulting in injury and often death. For creatures that use sonar for communication, cement pools are a stressful and severely limiting environment.
There are many, many more reasons why it's unethical to keep marine mammals, and more specifically cetaceans, in captivity. Please educate yourself: http://www.humanesociety.org/assets/pdfs/marine_mammals/case_against_marine_captivity.pdf

It's possible that Justin Bieber is unaware of how his actions influence his audience, but it's time for him to recognize that this new generation demands to be shown reality, no matter how ugly it is. Justin Bieber, please use your influence to help us shut down mammal aquariums instead of encouraging their inhumanity.

      He's done it again. Justin Bieber never ceases amaze me with his level of ignorance, selfishness and stupidity. To promote the captivity of marine mammals is tantamount to promoting slavery, dolphins have higher emotional IQs than humans, and the damage, both psychological and physical that is done to these beautiful creatures by taking them into captivity is huge. It really doesn't surprise me that Justin Bieber is idiotic enough to promote this, but it is sick and it has to stop
