Premise of the Cetacean Bill of Rights:
Based on the principle of the equal treatment of all persons;
Recognizing that scientific research gives us deeper insights into the complexities of cetacean minds, societies and cultures;
Noting that the progressive development of international law manifests an entitlement to life by cetaceans;
We affirm that all cetaceans as persons have the right to life, liberty and wellbeing.
We conclude that:
Seriously, they’re smarter than us. They travel the vast majority of the planet. If they begin to understand that we wish to honor them as we do each other, as sentient, intelligent beings, what might they teach us.

Imagine being harassed by impossibly clever small primates who built destructive machinery, naked monkeys who were, as a species, living out of balance within their world and threatened the existence of all life. Imagine…putting your blowholes together and making a difference.
