Taking Kids to SeaWorld - Controversy of Animal Parks & Performing Whales on CNN


The documentary Blackfish premieres tonight on CNN at 9 pm ET. This important film is by director Gabriella Cowperthwaite, a mom who used to take her own kids to SeaWorld. It continues the conversation and debate among parents about taking our children to see killer whales perform, considering all the current controversy surrounding this world-famous marine water park in the wake of the most recent tragic death of orca trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010.
