    Thank you for writing Death At SeaWorld. I am still in the middle of reading it! It is mind blowing, highly educational and puts the blood on boil all at the same time. There is so much going on behind the scenes when it comes to our natural world and the species we share this planet with on a daily basis….and all for some big company’s bottom line which they milk off the American tax payer.

    We MUST wake up and reignite our own sense of morality, ethics and courage when it comes to how we interact with killer whales. Everything that can be done must be done to set up sea pens and stop making them perform or be on display for profit.

    Thank you again for writing this book!

    Yes,it is the last thing you thought of as you took your children while on vacation…a day of diversion from the beach. This is amusement at the cost of death of our natural world. Thank You

    What was the results of Shamoo’s death?

    David, you have written a remarkable book that has deeply inspired me to the point where I can’t stop thinking about the topic. I have always had an aversion towards places like Sea World, which I’d only heard about/seen on TV growing up in Europe. It must’ve been my mother’s influence whom I remember always voicing her disgust with places that keep dolphins and whales. I am the living example that nobody in the world needs places like Sea World to care about orcas, especially not in the internet era.

    As a PR professional in the entertainment industry, reading Sea Worlds textbook responses to all allegations against them, whether by the movie or your book or any other reporting – it makes me sick to my stomach and deeply ashamed to work in Public Relations. There is not an ounce of sincerity in anything that comes out of their PR slaves. I honestly don’t know how these guys can sleep at night.

      with all of the Orcas Whales should be protected by the United marine company so that the Orcas will not be killed at all we all need to prtect all of the Orcas whales very much and to keep them from being killed from the ships across the sea like the people who kill whales and even the Orcas as well we need to protect them at all coast from Wendy Sells

    I have just finished your book and have enjoyed every page.,
    As a child I went to SeaWorld and saw Shamu I can tell you I would never take my children there.
    It makes my blood boil that SeaWorld are still in existence they should be shut down.
    It’s all about money and crowd pulling..
    How I wish I had the money the time to try and save these beautiful creatures.

    Hello David, Are there plans to put your book in audio format? I have the kindle version. Less ware and tear. some day I plan to get a Kindle So I have more room for the Kindle books. I hope there will success soon in stopping Sea World’s breeding programs. I also feel it’s wrong to violate Tilikum in this manner. Sea World is crossing a boundary that is morally wrong too. Another thing is that sad, Tilikum has never known what’s it’s like to pick his own mate. And Lotita has never had her own cafe. The man who thinks he owns her. Lolita belongs to God. He made her in the Ocean where she was born. Thank you for standing up for these beautiful animals. The Dolphins need to be freed too. I love our sea life. My Dying wish is to too take a trip over our beautiful ocean if I get there before then. Plus After I pass. I want my ashes sprinkled over the ocean. God bless.

    Hi, I for one cannot wait to read this. I am going to do my college research paper on orcas in captivity, this will be one of the books I use as a reference. It’s something I am so passionate about, they are my favorite animal. So beautiful and intelligent.
