EVERYTHING dies at some point, and some sooner than others...

True, but it's still fatalist thinking.

Do we need to encourage that death? No.

So it looks like the whole Shamu program is going to be scrapped. Existing orca whales in the program will be the last of the program.

Quote:
Sea World has announced it will end its orca breeding program effective today. This means the generation of orca whales at Sea World parks will be the company's last.

Sea World says all of their orca whales will continue to live out their lives at the parks, and that guests will be able to observe the whales in new 'educational encounters' - instead of the traditional theatrical shows.

That change will begin in San Diego next year and will happen here in San Antonio in 2019.

SeaWorld had little choice and that's fine with me: Change or watch what little profit they had left die

Voting with your wallet does indeed work. Case-in-point here

First World problems.
