Death at Seaworld : Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity Paperback

Description

Death at SeaWorld centres on the battle with the multimillion-dollar marine park industry over the controversial and even lethal ramifications of keeping killer whales in captivity.

Following the story of Naomi Rose, a marine biologist and animal advocate at the Humane Society of the U.S., Kirby tells the gripping story of the two-decade fight against PR-savvy SeaWorld, which came to a head with the tragic death of trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010.

Kirby puts that horrific animal-on-human attack in context.

Brancheau's death was the most publicised among several brutal attacks that have occurred at Sea World and other marine mammal theme parks.
