The Government of Ontario (Canada) has convened a Committee to provide
research-based options and recommendations regarding how best to ensure the
most humane treatment of captive cetaceans.

The Committee is seeking advice from the scientific community to highlight
areas of scientific information on potential benefits or detrimental
effects of keeping cetaceans in captivity in non-research institutions.
This includes (but is not limited to) published, peer-reviewed studies of
animal health, both physical and behavioural, as well as published studies
on the potential educational benefits of display animals.

To that end, individuals or organizations may provide a 2-page [maximum]
submission to the Committee. Please note that this is not an invitation to
provide opinions, but to ensure the Committee has taken into consideration
and has access to all of the relevant science-based evidence. Those
individuals making submissions my be subsequently contacted for further
information or input. Also, please be aware that all submissions may
potentially be included in the Committee’s final report to the Government
of Ontario.

Submissions (and related inquiries) may be made by email to:
ontario.cetaceans at gmail.com by no later than January 31, 2014.

David Rosen, PhD.
