That's true. If you're going to boycott sea world then you have to boycott every zoo in the United States and any other facility that house animals. I agree you can't send these animals back into the wild because they don't know how to fend for themselves. I can see their point however -- keeping animals captive is probably not a good idea. We can learn about animals in many different ways now with all our technologies in place. Granted you can't physically touch the animals in this scenario, but the perpetuation of keeping these animals confined probably should stop. Research, study and anything to do with saving animals from extinction should certainly be continued as well as continued education and implementing medical care to animals.

I am undecided in whether or not Orca's should be kept in captivity, but I do know that blackfish is a 'stupid movie' based on nothing but lies.

I have been back stage at Sea world all the animals seem fine no harm from thier contaiment at all. Everything is positive reinforcement. I think Blackfish just wanted to twist things around to make a profit. I support Sea World!!!

I'm not sure how you got to that number, the Florida Resident Disney 3 day pass is $179, Seaworld is $50 a day during the week, and $89 if you paid full cost on a weekend.

So here is what we all need to remember/know... all the animals Blackfish is targeting have been in captivity since the 60's or 70's(back before humans stopped to consider if we should take them from the wild or not)... the footage they use as evidence proves that. The 1972 Marine Mammal act prohibits US from taking mammals. So Sea World is maintaining who they already have... do you really want to release a mammal into the ocean who has never had to hunt for food or evade a predator? Yes, they do breed but the instincts those mammals inherit and how they are raised also would put them at risk in the ocean. I am very glad to see the killer whales receiving a new habitat. I agree the old one was too small. However, by boycotting Sea World we hinder all the good the parks do. Rescue and rehabilitation of animals to just name one. We can't change what was done in the past but at least Sea World is trying to make things better. I don't notice anyone boycotting zoo's and aquariums... not that much different!

I love seaworld and they take very good care of animals and I will continue to go there.theyshould have never made that movie about the whales cause it's not true.

The point is that killer whales should never be in those tiny pools in the first place. Capable of travelling 100 miles a day but limited to a couple shows a day, what a life. Watch the 'stupid movie' you're on about and it will hopefully shed a light on what these animals go through and why seaworld should have no ones support on this matter...

I've always enjoyed SeaWorld, but they have priced themselves out of my market. Went to Orlando this Spring and spent all my time at Disney. As a Florida resident, I could spend 3 days at Disney for the price of 1 at Sea World.

I love Sea World. I hate that the stupid movie came out and people are boycotting Sea World. I mean.. do you REALLY need a contract saying a KILLER whale may hurt you?? They're not called cuddley whales. I support Sea World.
