Troubled marine park operator, SeaWorld has parted company with yet another CEO.
Sergio Rivera, was the theme park giant’s chief executive officer for only five months and is thought to have left after disagreements with the board.
Previous CEO, Gus Antorcha, was with SeaWorld for less than seven months and also resigned following internal disagreements over decision making.
SeaWorld has faced a public backlash following the release of the film, Blackfish, which highlighted some of the issues about keeping orcas in captivity and the wider captivity industry as a whole.
Holding whales and dolphins captive is cruel. You can help end this practice. WDC and its partners are creating a sanctuary for beluga whales held in captivity. Please donate
