Are there any species that you would be unwilling to maintain in captivity even if it meant their extinction from both the wild and captivity? why?

There is no reason in keeping marine mammals in captivity especially if they’re not endangered and using them as entertainment. Doing so is, of course, a perennial source of money for places like Sea World or Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium. But these animals are intelligent, have evolved to range widely over the open sea, and are not happy in small tanks where they sometimes have to do tricks.A common rationale is that “we learn more about these animals by studying them in captivity,” and that will help us save them.
