In a major shift that sunsets the display of captive orcas in its amusement parks, SeaWorld announced it will end the breeding of killer whales at its facilities and will have no orcas at all in any new parks opened around the world.

SeaWorld is also taking a number of other positive steps to address the welfare of other animals, including rescue and rehabilitation, and the sourcing of food served to more than 20 million people annually. You can read more about this announcement and set of corporate reforms here»

I'm supportive of SeaWorld's plan to end the breeding of captive orcas at its facilities and to have no orcas at all in any new parks opened around the world. It's important that companies step up and change their business models to better protect animals.
