SeaWorld says the current generation of orcas in captivity will be the last
SeaWorld announced today that they’ll no longer breed killer whales and that the current generation of orcas living in their parks will be the last. They’ll also be phasing out their theatrical orca shows starting next year. This is fantastic news for conservationists and animal rights activists, as well as consumers who’d abandoned the chain of parks in recent years over concern for the plight of the whales.
SeaWorld announced the move on their Facebook page with a video explaining their plan going forward.
