SeaWorld has parted with another CEO.

Sergio Rivera was the theme park giant’s chief executive officer for only five months. He is thought to have left after disagreements with the board.

Previous CEO, Gus Antorcha, was with SeaWorld for fewer than seven months. He  also resigned following internal disagreements over decision making.

SeaWorld has faced a public backlash following the release of the film, Blackfish.  This film highlighted the issues about keeping orcas in captivity and the wider captivity industry.
