When public opinion had been swayed against the keeping of animals in captivity for entertainment, SeaWorld also announced that it would phase out its killer whale performances by 2019. With 22 orcas remaining in their care in America, the youngest of which was born in 2014, SeaWorld anticipates the orcas to remain on display and available for research for many years into the future, in their San Antonio facility, here in the Texas Hill Country, as well as their Orlando, and San Diego facilities. In place of its theatrical-style shows, the company has announced that it plans to introduce “natural orca encounters” as a new form of display.
