The "Rights" of Wildlife & Information

As our human population places more demand upon the planet and the creatures that dwell here, the "rights" of those creatures take more precedence daily.  What if this planet had no more natural wildlife?  What if the only "wildlife" visible to humans were those in captivity?

That is one of the reasons The Daily Prism features groups that work to keep natural wildlife protected, and educate humans about nature's gifts. is a website that brings information about the species known as Killer Whales/Orcas/Blackfish--that stunning black and white marine mammal with surprising intelligence. It's the orcas' intelligence that makes it a popular attraction at entertainment venues like big name aquariums around the world.

But the truth is that orcas held in captivity suffer and do not live as long as one would out of captivity.

Information is the key to keep wildlife wild.
