Bigger Tanks Do Not Mean Better Homes For SeaWorld Whales

(SEAWORLD/WHALES/CAPTIVE ORCAS) In response to the criticism SeaWorld received after the release of the documentary film, Blackfish, SeaWorld San Diego announced its plans to expand the park’s orca whale enclosures.

However, animal activists argue that enlarging the orca enclosures will do very little to improve orca health. When not in captivity, orca whales enjoy swimming as deep as 1,000 feet into the ocean. Therefore, an enclosure that is merely 50 feet deep would still not provide the whales with a proper environment. Read on to learn about why these intelligent creatures deserve lives free from captivity. — Global Animal
