Special date for the TSSC April Meeting. We will not be meeting on the usual second Wednesday of the month.
Topic: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish
John Hargrove´s career as one of the most experienced orca trainers in the world spanned the course of two decades. He worked with 20 different whales, on two different continents, and at two of SeaWorld´s U.S. facilities, where he was promoted to the highest level of trainer and given elite access to the parks´ most dangerous whales. After two of his fellow trainers were killed by orcas in marine parks, Hargrove came to the realization that SeaWorld´s enormously popular and lucrative programs are not only dangerous for trainers, but also physically and psychologically detrimental to the whales themselves on an irreversible level.
