A must read book! Orcas belong in the wild; captivity kills.
Death at SeaWorld, a gripping scientific thriller, tells the story of real people taking part in the heated debate over killer whales in captivity. David Kirby eloquently describes the lives of orcas in the ocean and compares them to those in tanks at amusement parks. He writes about the media backlash, the eye-witnesses who come forward to question SeaWorld’s glossy image, and the groundbreaking OSHA case that challenges the very idea of performing shows with the ocean’s top predators. Death at SeaWorld exposes the backroom politics, profit-centered policies and dangerous conditions at SeaWorld, America’s most beloved marine mammal park.
