Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

OR­LANDO, Fla. — SeaWorld has set up a web­site and posted ads in a hand­ful of news­pa­pers around the na­tion in re­sponse to a crit­i­cal doc­u­men­tary that in­spired eight mu­si­cal acts to can­cel per­for­mances at the com­pany’s Or­lando ma­rine park. SeaWorld posted the ad Fri­day in The New York Times, The Wall Street Jour­nal, The Wash­ing­ton Post, USA To­day, the Or­lando Sen­tinel, the San Diego Union-Tri­bune and the San An­to­nio Ex­press-News. SeaWorld has parks in Or­lando, San Diego and San An­to­nio. Both the ad and the web­site, www.sea­world­, de­scribe SeaWorld as an ad­vo­cate for an­i­mals and de­tail its ef­forts to res­cue and care for ma­rine an­i­mals. More than a half­dozen mu­si­cal acts have pulled out of SeaWorld Or­lando’s Bands, Brew and BBQ con­cert se­ries in Fe­bru­ary, cit­ing the doc­u­men­tary Black­fish.
