Well, well, well, what have we here?

Another case of a hippie, animal activist promoting do what I say not what I do.

Look how she plans to make a buck off nature.

Hypocrite! You Won't believe The Audacity  Of This Animal Activist

Researcher Ingrid Visser has been very busy lately.

Visser, an orca researcher and anti-zoological advocate from New Zealand has been criss-crossing the globe as she photographs killer whales in human care in California, Texas, Florida and Spain.

Ingrid Visser recently gave a formal presentation as a “non-biased researcher” at the California Coastal Commission in Long Beach, California where she shared why she thought killer whales should not be kept in human care.

Only Visser does have a bias. And it looks lucrative for her.

She is planning on being a snorkeling guide for tourists on a Norway cruise with Waterproof Expeditions in January and February of 2016.

In the United States and in New Zealand, there are clear laws that prevent humans from harassing wild killer whales. In the US, the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) mandates a 100 yard (91 meter) viewing distance for large whales, whether that is on land or sea.  In New Zealand the distance required is at least 50 meters (54 yards) away from whales while at sea.

But these marine mammal protection laws don’t exist in Norway and Visser and Waterproof Expeditions are taking full advantage.
