Cowperthwaite and Berg hope that SeaWorld will eliminate its orca shows and replace them with more educational exhibits, such as facilities where sick whales are rehabilitated for eventual release. Another option, they say, is for the company to keep whales in a sea pen — a cordoned-off portion of the ocean where whales can still feel the natural rhythms of the ocean but are not confined to a tank.
- I completely agree. I’m really liking the rehabilitation option! You could charge a little fee to observe the whales from a safe distance and the money goes towards the whales and their needs.
