Readers, as we continue to share with readers the truth about claims that are inaccurate, misleading, or incomplete, we want to address a subject that is often used to unfairly criticize SeaWorld: the dolphin drive hunts in Japan.
The Truth About SeaWorld and Japanese Dolphin Slaughters
The slaughter of dolphins and small whales in the Japanese drive hunts will begin again soon.
Contrary to what you might hear, SeaWorld is opposed to this horrific practice and not a single animal living in our parks came from a drive hunt. In fact, federal law prohibits bringing animals from this hunt into the United States. The overwhelming majority of marine mammals you see when you visit SeaWorld were born in our parks.
Those are the facts.
