Improvement news ....
think its more to do with share prices dropping down fast due to the likes of blackfish etc.
I would sooner see them move away from a new "Killer Whale Habitat" , its clearly this area that's unpopular , its certainly is with me
Doubt it will do much to satisfy or placate the extremists.
Seaworld were explicit in their announcement that the changes were not because of bad publicity, so the header of 'Seaworld Listens' is pejorative and just fuel to a thread that will probably descend into farce.
Would have made more sense if it was just like any other expansion plan - i.e. "Seaworld Expands Killer Whale Exhibit"
The whales exist at SeaWorld facilities already.
They cannot be returned to the wild ... they would die.
SeaWorld are enhancing the environment in which these animals exist.
This can only be a good thing.
BTW my title was in no way meant to be disapproving or in contempt of their actions. Every good company listens to their customers and reacts to their opinion ... and it also shows that they are concerned with the welfare of their animals.
They're not going say we're doing this because of bad publicity..lol
Any improvement is good, but really still not enough.Edited: 17 August 2014, 16:56
So,sea world listens . But then claim that they are not doing this due to bad publicity??????
So what did they listen to?????
I hardly think such extensive expansion plans have been as a result of negative publicity. As the whales are captive and CANNOT be released even into sea pens they are just enhancing the existing habitats.
