SeaWorld parts company with another CEO

SeaWorld Park

Troubled marine park operator, SeaWorld has parted company with yet another CEO.

Gus Antorcha, who had been with SeaWorld for less than seven months has resigned following internal disagreements over decision making.

Antorcha replaced Joel Manby, who was named CEO in 2015, who also stepped down last year.

SeaWorld has faced a public backlash following the release of the film, Blackfish, which highlighted some of the issues about keeping orca in captivity and the wider captivity industry as a whole.

 

Holding whales and dolphin captive is cruel. You can help end this practice. WDC and its partners are creating a sanctuary for beluga whales held in captivity.
