In 2015, the Plant-Smart Living team had the opportunity to visit SeaWorld San Diego. It was an experience met with much trepidation and confusion. In some ways, it was a rather emotional visit as images of the documentary Blackfish resonated heavily in our minds and hearts. The picture painted in the film was very bleak, but seeing the amusement park up close and personal brought additional perspective.
Regardless of opinion, I think we can all be happy in knowing that SeaWorld has chosen the high road. If we have to have such a large national (and international) debate about the welfare of killer whales, or orcas, kept in captivity; I am happy to see that humanity has taken a step forward towards airing on the side of caution.
