You Don't Want One

No. Don’t say it. Don’t say, “I want one.”

Let’s think about it.

You want them to be happy, right? Of course you do. You’re a nice person.

For them to be at their happiest, you’ll need to leave them in their native habitat and protect said habitat through your support of conservation efforts.

Buying one from a breeder isn’t any better.
Like you may have learned by watching Blackfish, if you really love animals, it’s best to let wild animals be wild.

Thank you for reading!
