SeaWorld getting trainers back in water with whales

Well here’s some interesting news from SeaWorld. It seems as though they are going to very slowly start putting trainers back into the pools with the killer whales.

As most people know, SeaWorld has not allowed any of the Orca whale trainers into the water with any of the whales since SeaWorld Orlando trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed by a 6-ton orca named Tilikum on Feb. 24, 2010.

But now they say they are going to very slowly start some water works with trainers in the water with the whales. At first it will be just restricted to small medical pools equipped with false-bottom floors that can be lifted out of the water.

Click to hear about the new killer whale show “One Ocean” at Sea World

For you Sea World of Orlando fans I have some news for you! Seems like this year, maybe around late spring, they will have an all new shamu killer whale show!

The new Sea World show will be called One Ocean, which will replace the 5 year old “Believe” killer whale show they have had. The pool and props around it will be very different and will be extensively re-done.

The reason for this, even if they don’t say it, is because of the death of Dawn Brancheau, who was battered and killed by a killer whale last year. In this new show, no Sea World trainers will be in the water with the killer whales.
