On the March 31st Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with John Hargrove, a former Sea World trainer and author of “Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth Beyond Blackfish.” In recent years, the theme park conglomerate has come under attack for mistreating Orcas, which Hargrove calls cruel for the animals and trainers. Where do you stand on this issue?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

East Bay Express: The Dolphin Dilemma

Apr 23, 2014

From our partners at the East Bay Express.

On today's Your Call, we’ll speak with David Kirby about his new book, Death at SeaWorld: Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity. In 2010, a captive 12,000 pound orca killed the well known trainer Dawn Brancheau at Sea World Orlando. Her death may lead to significant changes at marine mammal parks. It also sparked a heated debate about whether the world’s top predator should be held captive.
