SeaWorld’s im­age prob­lem

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “Sav­ing whales and its im­age,” Busi­ness, June 6

The peo­ple run­ning SeaWorld En­ter­tain­ment Inc. are delu­sional if they think they will ever be able to re­pair the dam­age to their com­pany’s tar­nished im­age, no mat­ter how much money they throw at the prob­lem.

A shift in con­scious­ness is oc­cur­ring as the public re­al­izes that the act of con­fin­ing or­cas to a pool is in­her­ently cruel and no pool will ever be big enough for a whale. SeaWorld should stop hold­ing whales in cap­tiv­ity, end its breed­ing pro­grams and con­vert to a non-an­i­mal theme park if it wants to sur­vive.
