What about all the animals that were born in captivity or have learned to rely on humans for their food? We are talking about a ton of animals across the country that probably fall in these catagories.

The article clearly states that animals unsuited for release will be re-homed in sanctuaries. My son has spent the past two summers doing research in CR. The country is highly regarded for conservation efforts, bio-diversity and preservation.

He only had to walk outside his casita to find all sorts of wildlife, and has taken some amazing pictures. I see this as a positive move. I am not a fan of animals in enclosures.

I agree and think it is a positive move along with the side note about releasing dolphins.
