Sea mammals

Orcas, dolphins, porpoises, and whales have their languages and teach their young, as we do, how to be better individuals. Like us, they have free will. Like us, they have good memories and are capable of creatively solving problems. If we could understand them only a little, we might learn that they don’t fit our idea that an animal must be either wild or tame. Unlike sharks, they aren’t wild; unlike sheep, they aren’t tame. We might learn that they have very little use for us or for our way of seeing things.
