Below is a guest post by the animal and human rights activist and supporter of free software Luis Leonel.
The Uruguayan non-governmental organization, SOS RESCATE DEFAUNA MARINA (SOS RESCUE OF MARINE FAUNA), not only rescues marine animals in order to return them to the sea, in most of cases after they were healed and fed, but educates society in the respect and care of nature.
Surely, animal rights activists will always remember the images of Danish children witnessing public dissections of “surplus” animals in Denmark zoos. The aim, according to the authorities of those zoos, is teaching children that the “Real World” is not the “Disney World” wherein no person or animal ever dies. The “Real World” is a place, Danish authorities affirm, where slaughtering animals for entertainment is legitimate because they are inferior creatures with no right to life, and the humans are their proprietors because of their intellectual superiority.
This photo shows Uruguayan children watching a baby dolphin recently rescued by SOS RESCATE DE FAUNA MARINA. The dolphin, a boy with less than ten days old, was found in the coast of Neptunia, in Canelones, the capital of the department of Canelones in Uruguay, with part of his umbilical cord. He has respiratory problems and his situation “is complicated”, according to the organization’s authorities.
SOS RESCATE DE FAUNA MARINA survives with small donations of animal right activists and lowly companies.
