In the wake of a recent documentary, “Blackfish,” rock bands Heart and Barenaked Ladies along with country singer Willie Nelson canceled their planned performances at SeaWorld, citing the documentary which raises questions about the effects of captivity on whales.
Shamu and company which perform in SeaWorld Orlando’s “One Ocean” show will go on a temporary hiatus in the beginning of 2014.
One day in the future you could own a share in Shamu. On Thursday, SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. filed for an initial public offering of stock that could raise $100 million.
It’s going to cost you a bit more to see Shamu and his friends at SeaWorld in Orlando.
