Scientists Propose 'Bill of Rights' for Dolphins to Protect 'Non-Human Persons'
Animal-rights activists have long sought freedom for dolphins from their circus-like captivity. Now scientists are proposing a "Declaration of Cetacean Rights." The biological order of Cetacea includes whales, dolphins, and porpoises.
Dolphins are the second most intelligent mammal on the planet--even smarter than chimpanzees. Humans rule the earth, but dolphins are the smartest in the seas. Research shows that dolphins are even capable of thinking about the future.
