SeaWorld spends millions on caring for, rescuing and rehabilitating animals all over the world. I wonder how much money the idiots here claiming SeaWorld abuses animals spend? Do you do any work at all to help animals? You have no idea about what goes on at SeaWorld unless you work there and have carried out the necessary research, and you have no idea whether the animals are happy or not. They are fed, cared for and carefully monitored. They are captive bred animals, releasing them in to the wild would do nothing but kill them in weeks much like releasing a domesticated dog (which is naturally wild to remind you) into the wild would. The naive and conspiratorial comments on here are ludicrous...open your eyes, educate yourselves and enjoy the damn park like I will be in the foreseeable future!
