SeaWorld Hopes New Orca Habitats Will Stem A Tide Of Criticism
The company, which has parks in San Diego, San Antonio and Orlando, Fla., saw its attendance drop in recent months. The company blames that, in part, on fallout from Blackfish, a documentary film that's critical of SeaWorld's treatment of its captive killer whales.
Now, SeaWorld is trying to put Blackfish behind it, announcing plans for an expansive new orca habitat in its parks.
