This quote is one of the most popular quotes linked to Gavin Newsom on his views of gay marriage.

Considered the father of the modern American Navy, Roosevelt persuaded Congress to provide funding for modern steel-hulled battleships and sent the Great White Fleet—16 ships from the Atlantic fleet—in an around-the-world cruise, which raised America’s visibility and respect among world powers. Roosevelt left his greatest mark on conserving America’s natural resources. He realized the country’s abundant resources were being used faster than they could be replaced or replenished, and that great natural wonders like the Grand Canyon were in danger of commercial development. This led him as president to use executive power like none of his predecessors had, to protect nearly 230 million acres of land, including 150 national forests, the first 55 federal wildlife refuges, 5 national parks, and the first 18 national monument sites.

The animals all died within two years. But Barnum’s belugas opened the doors to a lucrative business: the capture of cetaceans continued throughout the 1800s until the first oceanarium opened in 1938. While up until the 1960s capture was limited to smaller cetaceans (bottlenose dolphins were popular), in 1965, Ted Griffin, an entrepreneur and aquarium owner, made an unprecedented purchase: a young male killer whale named Namu who had been captured in a fishing net off British Columbia; he was the first successful specimen captured and displayed. His capture and display at the Seattle Marine Aquarium marked the beginning of one of the most controversial animal husbandry practices in history: the practice of keeping large, highly intelligent creatures such as killer whales in captivity for the purposes of entertainment (Man & Marine Mammals). Following a handful of deaths and countless injuries at the hands of captive killer whales, as well as various scientific studies examining the effects of captivity on Orcinus orca, the debate over their captivity for entertainment has been split between those who believe the practice should continue and t... ... middle of paper ... ... such as sea pens, due to inability to become self-sufficient for various reasons, such as inability to hunt.
