Aquarium dolphins are for kids, not Millennials [Letter]
May 23, 2014 | 12:00 PM
John Racanelli, CEO of the National Aquarium, wants to create a modern-era aquarium that appeals to the Millennial generation ("What to do with dolphin area if dolphins depart," May 20). Millennials do not frequent the aquarium, they frequent the trendy streets of Hampden and Canton.
Grandparents bring children to the aquarium, schools bring children to the aquarium and Millennials, when they come, bring children to the aquarium. Children love and enjoy the dolphins.
Interestingly, one of Mr. Racanelli's suggestions for a replacement exhibit is an underwater forest which would replicate a similar exhibit where he previously worked.
