SeaWorld has announced it will NO LONGER breed Orcas in captivity!
Since the release of the documentary ‘Blackfish’, critics and animal activists have been calling for SeaWorld to end its captive breeding program. The public pressure has hurt the company: In the three years since the movie’s release, the number of visitors to SeaWorld’s parks has dropped, and its stock price has fallen by more than half!
The orcas currently at SeaWorld will be the last!
The announcement was made today, with the SeaWorld owner vowing to end orca breeding effective immediately and introduce “new, inspiring, natural orca encounters, rather than theatrical shows, as part of its ongoing commitment to education.”
AMAZING NEWS! Now, let’s get them to put Tilikum and the other orcas in whale sanctuaries instead of at the parks at all.
