Conferencia magistral sobre la realidad del cautiverio de delfines en el mundo

Le invitamos a todos los lectores y estudiosos interesados en comprender la dimensión ambiental y ética de los delfines en cautiverio, están invitados a abrir este archivo de powerpoint en PDF para que estén mejor ilustrados al respecto: Conferencia de Noemi A. Rose, Ph. D. sobre Delfines en Cautiverio (Inglés) 

Los estudios recientes han demostrado que los delfines se reconocen a sí mismos, con capacidades cognoscitivas altamente sofisticadas. En las sociedades de los delfines nariz de botella, ciertos individuos son el “pegamento social” que mantiene la manada junta.  Remover a estos individuos, por muerte natural, captura, matanza, y otros medios, la población puede perder cohesión y eventualmente dispersarse, en detrimento del stock genético y los ecosistemas locales.

Recent studies have demonstrated that dolphins are self-aware, with highly sophisticated cognitive abilities. In bottlenose dolphin societies, certain individuals are the social “glue” that holds the various pods of a population together – remove those individuals, by natural death, capture, killing, or any other means, and the population may lose cohesion and eventually disperse, to the detriment of the stock and the local ecosystem.

Naomi A. Rose, Ph.D.
Marine Mammal Scientist
Humane Society International

Dr. Naomi Rose is the Marine Mammal Scientist for Humane Society International (HSI), the international arm of The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the nation’s largest animal protection organization. The HSUS/HSI has its main office in Washington, D.C. and The HSUS has nine regional offices throughout the United States. HSI pursues animal protection activities and programs in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, and Latin America (including the Caribbean).

The HSUS/HSI’s mission covers a broad range of concerns, including the protection of pets, wildlife (including marine mammals), farm animals, and animals used in research. Its government affairs and treaties departments lobby on behalf of animals at the international, federal, state, and local levels, while its investigators work to expose animal fighting, the fur trade, greyhound racing, and the Norwegian whaling industry, among other issues.

Dr. Rose oversees marine mammal issues and programs at HSI, including the protection of marine mammals in the wild and in captive situations. She has been instrumental in formulating HSUS/HSI policy opposing the capture and captivity of marine mammals for public display and has been a key player in the international debate on the issue. She is actively involved in several campaigns and coalitions addressing problems associated with capture, captivity, and particularly swim-with-the-dolphin programs, both in the U.S. and abroad.

Dr. Rose is HSI’s scientific representative to the International Whaling Commission (IWC) Scientific Committee (where she focuses on the subcommittees addressing environmental concerns and whale watching) and advises The HSUS/HSI’s campaign on the dolphin-safe tuna issue. She directs, participates, or advises in campaigns focusing on the protection of walruses, polar bears, dugongs, and sea otters, as well as seals, sea lions, whales and dolphins. She is actively involved in a global campaign to address the impact of noise pollution on marine mammals and their habitat.

Dr. Rose has appeared and been quoted in numerous news media, including television and radio. She has authored several articles for animal protection publications, as well as chapters in several books. She lectures annually at several universities and speaks at and participates in various conferences, workshops, meetings, and task forces at the international, national and state level.

Dr. Rose received a Ph.D. in biology from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1992 (her dissertation examined the social dynamics of wild orcas) and came to work for The HSUS in 1993. She joined the HSI staff in 2004.
