    Thanks for getting the word out there about “Blackfish,” Amanda (and for being vegan)! I’m so happy it’s getting so much attention, and even happier that so many people care enough about these animals’ suffering that they wouldn’t take their kids to Sea World again. Is this the end for marine parks? Is the truth finally sinking in that wild animals are abused in places like marine parks and circuses? Can someone just give this film an Academy Award already? Yes, please!

    Everyone in America should see this movie. They should show it in schools. That would put a serious dent in SeaWorld’s bottom line.
