▶  USDA COMPLAINT FILED OVER SEAWORLD'S SUNBURNED ORCAS. Citing The Dodo’s interviews with several former SeaWorld trainers that personally applied zinc oxide to the skin of captive whales at the park, the complaint notes that one trainer even reported that “burnt layers of his skin would peel off in her hands” when she put sunscreen one one male whale. The main thrust of the complaint calls for more extensive shade coverage, pointing to these photos of the tanks which clearly lack shade cover: https://www.thedodo.com/usda-complaint-filed-over-seaw-641021639.html

 ▶  CONTROVERSY OVER IMPORTING 18 WILD BELUGA WHALES TO US MARINE PARKS (AQUARIUMS)

In the United States, aquariums and marine theme parks have responded to changing public sentiment about keeping marine mammals in captivity by emphasizing that they have not captured whales and dolphins from the wild in a long time.

Why put healthy wild whales through the trauma of thousands of miles of transport for display in a small tank so unlike their natural habitat? Belugas do not breed well in captivity; the captive population has been in decline for 15 years. Rather than admit that belugas have adapted poorly to confinement and should no longer be displayed, as The Humane Society of the United States and many other groups believe, the Georgia Aquarium; the three SeaWorld parks in Florida, Texas and California; the John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago; and the Mystic Aquarium in Connecticut are doubling down on a bad investment... http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/2012-10-26/opinion/os-ed-whales-sea-world-102612-20121025_1_beluga-whales-killer-whales-wild-whales
