SeaWorld to End Orca Whale Shows in California (WATCH)

After next year, SeaWorld will no longer be exhibiting its orca, or “killer whale” shows at the San Diego park in California.

Instead of the animals doing tricks, there will be a new orca attraction planned for 2017 that will convey a “conservation message inspiring people to act” to protect the environment.

Just last month, state regulators approved the park’s request to expand the size of its orca tanks, but on the condition that it shut down its captive breeding program statewide.
