After the tragedy happening at Sea World earlier this year, one can easily come to the conclusion that big mammals like cetaceans are not meant to be jailed in marine parks and aquariums. On the other hand I believe that education about cetaceans is crucial to achieve preservation campaigns that relies heavily on the general public. So here is a brillant solution proposed by a researcher at SFU. It involves using 3d technology with animation and voila! virtual cetaceans can come to life and interact with aquarium goers.
No more fish smells, and veterinarians but computer geeks behind the scene.
Now that is great news!
