    They might be ending them at all the parks in the future if the federal bill introduced recently becomes law. Orca shows are nearing an end, and I could not be happier. These animals don't need to be in captivity, and we can learn more from them in the wild then we ever would in captivity where they don't behave naturally.

          This is somewhat sad news. Though I've enjoyed the shows I get that these animals don't need to be paraded around. I do hope that the Orcas in captivity aren't released to the wild though. At least in San Diego all of the Orcas there have been born in captivity and fed and cared for daily. They wouldn't know how to survive in the wild and though some may learn and make it most wouldn't they'd starve or die of other causes.

            I think this is the right move, very similar to the "show" they do at Vancouver Aquarium... Just a short, 30 minute show, showcasing their natural habits and behaviours. More educational, with a little splashing through out. This should be much better then the Whale spectacles they used to do. A step in the right direction for the whales unable to leave captivity.

                  No dates as of yet. Sea World is fighting the decision.
