Orca-free SeaWorld

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

How much of SeaWorld’s ap­peal came from Shamu and other or­cas? In­vestors are about to find out. SeaWorld Parks & En­ter­tain­ment an­nounced the first new SeaWorld park with­out or­cas will open in 2022 in Abu Dhabi. The com­pany has faced with­er­ing crit­i­cism over its orca pro­gram from an­i­mal-rights ac­tivists, which led to weaker at­ten­dance at its parks. The com­pany ended the orca-breed­ing pro­gram in March.
