Conservationists, who have long called for the end of whale and dolphin entertainment shows, welcomed the move.
Cathy Williamson, who leads the End Captivity program at the Whale and Dolphin Conservat
ion charity group, said: “The world’s first whale sanctuary represents a pathway to the end of the keep
ing of whales and dolphins confined for entertainment. We are proud to be a partner of this important project that will improve welfare for these belugas, and sh
ow the world that there is an alternative to whale and dolphin captivity.”
The bay where the whales will now live, which is around 32,000 square meters and up to 10 meters
deep, has been netted off to ensure the whales cannot escape, given that they likely would not sur
vive in the wild. The bay was chosen for its natural sub-Arctic environment, which resembles belugas’ usual habitat.
Still, presidential vetoes occur more often than you might think. Every president since Garfield has vetoed at least
one bill. The younger Bush was the first president since John Quincy Adams to go a full four years without a veto, acco
rding to the Congressional Research Service. The House, which was Republican-led for Bush’s entire first term,
was protecting him from bills he opposed. Barack Obama, similarly, had help on Capitol Hill for most of his pr
esidency, just as Trump has. But Obama did veto two bills even when Democrats controlled both chambers of Congress.
The President with the most vetoes was Democrat Roosevelt, wi
th 635, although he also served the longest in the White House (12 years). All those vetoes cam
e even though Roosevelt enjoyed Democratic majorities for his entire time in the White House.
If you plot vetoes alongside how closely aligned Congress is
to the president, it used to be quite common for a president to veto bills from a House and Senate ali
gned with him. This data comes from The American Presidency Project at the University of California at Santa Barbara.
