Guadalupe - the Regulations!

Click for detail!
My bad.

After so much ranting, I've totally missed them!
So here they are, in English and Spanish, courtesy of Mauricio's Pelagios Kakunj√° -  and they could not be clearer!
Do read them and pass them around!

I must really say that I like them.
Yes they are a tad stifling, possibly unnecessarily so - and no I'm definitely not alluding to the ban on going cageless and taking selfies etc which I very much applaud!
But this is after all a biosphere, meaning that the special circumspection is totally warranted. And after all the shenanigans by the shark molesting bimbettes all the way to the adrenaline junkies and their enablers, it is also not unsurprising that the pendulum has swung the other way. The really good news being that it will not at all affect business as instead of being suckered into the Great Slide (we miss you buddy!), the operators will instead be able to continue to offer an awesome, safe and long term sustainable experience with a likely minimal ecological impact, like it should be.

And the dreaded enforcement?
Looks like even there, progress has been remarkable. 
Two completely unrelated sources report that Ritter and his sharkitarians have been prevented from exiting the cage, incidentally much to the dismay of the poor googly eyed suckers that were coldly refused any refund, mind you by Ritter and Wirodive. 
Which begs the question, are they still fans?

And the other perpetrators?
Dunno - but by the same token, for the first time, I am really hopeful. 
And yes, mark this day in your diary! :)

So here's to that - and very well done indeed!

Wait, what!? NO POKING SMALL TURTLES ON THE NOSE? What kind of BS show they running there anyway?

'Two completely unrelated sources report that Ritter and his sharkitarians have been prevented from exiting the cage...'

What sort of stupid, officious, short-sighted regulations are these anyway? Dr Ritturd should be allowed, indeed encouraged to leave the cage. Hell, I'd push him out myself. I'm sure there are plenty of people who would pay good money to watch Dr Ritturd applying his shark behavior bull on a pissed off great white.

Ritter is now doing his trips on the bellamie. I'm pretty sure that they will not let him do his usual shenanigans :-)
