    But, if it weren't for places like many zoos, sanctuaries and places like Disney, Seaworld, and Busch I fear that many animals may already have been extinct. These places do a lot of good work in raising awareness of things such as poaching and mass slaughter.

    It's very true, there are positives for both sides.

    Quoting for a book I have just finished, maybe as a species we have outgrown the need to capture these species. It has already been proven we can learn from these animals from the wild.

    Has it changed the way you feel about SeaWorld?

    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    Yes. Although I hadn't visited pre-attack. It is still sad. It feels like it is only the trainers who are actually interested in the wellbeing of the animals.

    The flamingo area upset my boyfriend and I as it was so tiny, let alone anything else.

    I'm reevaluating my feelings about the whole thing myself, haven't seen the movie but just remember its an extreme view, I'd like to see seaworld's response to this.

    Over crowding is the reason we are not "fans" of Busch Gardens, Tampa. We actually left early the one day we went as we couldn't bear the way the animals were housed and behaving. I tried to convince myself that Sea World was a notch better because they do rescue animals (well, manatees, and dolphins, etc). But the shows are still a hard point with me.

    I know Disney keeps animals in captivity too...
