The project isn't so surprising -- the company announced plans to build a resort in Dubai in 2008, but abandoned the project a year later because of the economic crash. And as opposition to the park (especially to its practice of keeping orca whales in captivity) grows, the company will attempt to expand internationally, despite the obvious ethical problems problems with its business model currently.
SeaWorld and marine parks profit off keeping orcas and other marine animals in captivity -- despite evidence that captivity not only induces unnatural behaviors in whales, but also endangers trainers. Join us in pledging never to visit SeaWorld or other marine parks until they empty their orca tanks.
