#aquarium #sea #whales #dolphins #animals #get lost #helpless #sad #ecological education #life education
A little boy goes with his parents to the aquarium. Like the sea, it’s a place with whales, dolphins, starfish and many different kinds of fish. He walks around slowly, feeling as though he is in the sea too, and as though humans can talk to animals. At one point, he loses his parents. On his own in the aquarium he feels sad and helpless, like the animals that have been brought from the sea to the aquarium. When will they all see their parents again? The little boy will soon find his parents, but the creatures in the aquarium will probably never be able to go back to the sea.
