The documentary Blackfish has left a desperate SeaWorld in its wake, struggling to stay afloat in a sea of bad press and criticism from the public. As performer after performer (eight in total, so far) cancels their scheduled show for SeaWorld's upcoming “Bands, Brews & BBQ" concert series due to concerns raised by the film, SeaWorld has fought back with a list of responses that they have called an open letter from SeaWorld's “animal advocates."

Kill more mother whales? That’s what the Japanese government wants to do.
Gearing up to kill more than 1,000 whales in internationally protected waters, Japan’s senior vice-minister announced that Japan is “determined to continue the [whaling] program until it leads to the resumption of commercial whaling.”
It can take more than an hour for a harpooned whale to be dragged until it dies. We can’t let it continue.
Now, in light of Japan’s declaration that it intends to kill even more whales, President Barack Obama must make good on his promise. As the President himself put it, "allowing Japan to continue commercial whaling is unacceptable."
We need Obama to act before another whale is killed—and that means he needs to hear from you today. Thanks to your letters, the Obama administration has already taken important steps to save whales this year, standing up against vote-buying in the International Whaling Commission (IWC) and imposing diplomatic sanctions on Iceland.
Starting today, the U.S. must help turn the IWC into a conservation body that protects whales, not whaling. The Administration needs to have bilateral talks with nations who are stalling reforms and work with other conservation-minded nations. It’s time to take a stand.
Ask Obama to fulfill his campaign promise to protect whales. We need the help of whale protectors like you to send 50,000 letters to Obama this week.
Tell President Obama, "There’s no more time to delay on your word. Stop the brutal slaughter of whales now."
We’ve made remarkable strides to save whales this year, and we’re not going to slide backward and let Japan resume commercial whaling. We can end this senseless practice once and for all, but we need to stand together and speak up.
Like many other plant-based foods and products, CBD oil is one dietary supplement where "organic" labels are very important to consumers. However, there are little to no regulations within the hemp industry when it comes to deeming a product as organic, which makes it increasingly difficult for shoppers to find the best CBD oil products available on the market.
