11-time World Surfing Champion, Kelly Slater, has become the latest person to add their voice to the groundswell of criticism aimed against SeaWorld and its continuing display of orcas in captivity.
The surfer, currently taking part in an event in Fiji, had hoped to get his views across in a written statement to SeaWorld to be presented at their latest shareholders meeting. Unfortunately, it failed to get through to the web-based gathering.
Slater has spoken out on several occasions in recent months on the captivity issue on his social media channel as well as having his boards given an artistic makeover with orca designs.
