No this is not a made up story. A team of experts has said that dolphins should have the same rights to life and liberty to humans. The reason of this is because of their high intelligence and self-awareness.
If this does become legal, it will mean the end of dolphins and whales in captivity. This also means that these mammals will not be used for entertainment purposes. I bet Sea World won’t be happy about that.
The experts behind this study have made their decision through years of research. They found that whales and dolphins have large, complex brain, which are similar to that of humans.
So, what do you think? Should dolphins and whales have rights similar to that of humans?
