    As announced in March 2016, SeaWorld is transitioning from theatrical orca shows to a more educational presentation reflecting more natural behaviors of the whales. The first of these “live documentary”-style presentations, called Orca Encounter, will debut at SeaWorld San Diego this summer. SeaWorld Orlando and SeaWorld San Antonio will follow by 2019. The final "One Ocean Shamu" show was conducted at SeaWorld San Diego on Sunday, Jan. 8. Their interim educational orca presentation called a “Killer Whale Presentation” started on Monday, Jan. 9. They have set up temporary seating (bleachers) around the orca underwater viewing area pool and will provide our guests this educational presentation while the new Orca Encounter backdrop is constructed at the main pool. Guests to SeaWorld San Diego will continue to experience live orca presentations, as they make preparations for the new education-based Orca Encounter to debut this summer. Guests will learn how killer whales behave in the wild, how they move, hunt and navigate, what they eat and even how they communicate. "Orca Encounter" will not only help guests gain a deeper appreciation and respect for the orcas, but will leave them with a new sense of determination and purpose to help preserve the future of these majestic animals. This new presentation will also look at broader themes such as research, rescue, conservation, habitats and distribution, husbandry and care, and social structures.  This will inspire as well as educate guests about the majesty of these complex animals and reinforce the company’s commitment to provide educational experiences with the park’s resident orcas.

    I found a video on YouTube called "Tilikum Died - SeaWorld Executives EXPOSED: The Killing of Tilikum Blackfish Killer Whale Dies " made by Bright Insight.

    It shows that Joel Many, who came from the general motors Saturn and Saab divisions, has a base pay of $1million, but because SeaWorld is a publicly traded company, made 11.3 MILLION DOLLARS last year!

    And it's not just him, Jack Roddy the chief of human resources who came from Starbucks, Peter J. Crage the chief financial officer from Extended Stay America (a hotel chain), Anthony Esparza the Chief Creative Officer who came from a design firm and other entertainment parks, are all MILLIONAIRES! All of the corporate executives, who left Tilikum to die in that tank, make the decisions in SeaWorld and all of their other parks! Their not marine biologists, they never were, what they are focused on is making money. So who would you rather believe? Experts who have spent most of their lives studying wild Orcas from birth to death, or just a bunch of people that want to solely make money from animal abuse and probably know next to NOTHING about these animals?

    Please share Bright Insights video, more people need to know about this. He might also do a video on Lolita and Seaquarium soon.

    Circus Vargas embarks on a brand new epic adventure under the big top. Debuting their innovative new production at Del Mar Fairgrounds before moving on to Mission Bay, National City and Escondido, Circus Vargas will divide performances between the four San Diego locations from Jan. 19 through March 13, with a special matinee and evening show added on Monday, Feb. 20 for President’s Day. The show Goggles, gears, and gadgets set the stage for Circus Vargas’ retro-futuristic production, Steam Cirque! Join them on a journey of fantastic proportions where children of all ages will marvel at the wacky and wonderful cast of characters that come alive in this exciting steampunk, science fiction fantasy inspired circus odyssey. Arrive 45 minutes early for an entertaining, interactive pre-show celebration, where kids can create their own magic under the big top, learning circus skills such as juggling, balancing and more. Meet and mingle with the entire cast after each performance. Capture the fun by posing for pics or selfies with your favorite cast members, all part of an unforgettable Circus Vargas experience. The storyline An eccentric group of adventure seekers stumble upon a traveling circus in an imaginary Victorian city, far, far-away. Steam Cirque’s peculiar protagonist, part magician-part inventor, attempts to industrialize the circus by incorporating his steam powered mechanical contraptions into the ordinary, typical circus rigging, filling the big top with new, imaginative acrobatic apparatus for the artists to perform their acts. Creative inspiration Husband and wife team Nelson and Katya Quiroga’s inspiration for this year’s production came to them over a casual dinner with friends. While reminiscing of traveling, their many adventures and how fast time has passed, Nelson remarked suddenly that he’d felt as if he’d been “Around the World in 80 days!” referring to a novel from French author Jules Verne’s collection, “Voyages Extraordinaire.” That comment and the subsequent conversation that followed morphed into hours of story telling. “It’s been quite the journey,” says Katya. “Sometimes we don’t even believe it ourselves.” Steam Cirque is inspired by adventure, colored by imagination and brought to life by the cast of Circus Vargas. General admission tickets are $22 to $32 for children and $27 to $37 for adults. Reserved ringside seating is $52 to $67 for children and $57 to $72 for adults.

    It's the centennial of Girl Scouts selling their iconic goodies, and to launch cookie season this year, the organization's “pairing” with San Diego Restaurant Week Jan. 15-22. Chefs at various coastal restaurants will incorporate Girl Scout cookies in some of their Restaurant Week menus. Chefs from participating eateries were at Girl Scout headquarters campus for a Restaurant Week launch event Jan. 10. They teamed with Girl Scouts to prepare their own Girl Scout cookie creations. Culinary Week guests at participating venues will be able to enjoy dishes featuring Girl Scout cookie standouts. This list includes Thin Mints, Do-si-dos, Trefoils, Samoas, Tagalongs, and Savannah Smiles. Participating chefs will be taking Girl Scout cookies to the next level with dishes like Samoas Crusted Fried Shrimp, Do-si-dos Peanut Thai Chicken and salads featuring toasted Trefoil croutons. “This is the first time since 2009 that we've been involved with restaurant week,” said Girl Scouts spokeswoman Mary Doyle. “We're doing it again to bring more attention to Girl Scout cookies.” The annual fundraising Girl Scout Cookie Program empowers girls to fulfill their dreams, change their communities and the world. Recent examples include Girl Scout Cookies delivered to United States military personnel around the globe, and care packages sent to victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, and victims of Superstorm Sandy in 2012. Giving back to local communities has been a hallmark of the Girl Scout Cookie Program since the first-known sale of cookies by Girl Scouts in 1917. The sale of Girl Scout Cookies has also made an indelible impact on the millions of Girl Scout alumnae who have sold them. In fact, 57 percent of Girl Scout alumnae in business say the program was key in the development of their skills today. Coastal Girl Scouts, like Troop 3292’s Isabella Catanzaro of Pacific Beach, a Cathedral High sophomore, age 15, is a 10-year veteran of cookie selling. So far, her troop has saved $1,800 for a six-day canoeing trip in Michigan. Leslie Catanzaro, who co-leads Troop 3292, said, “The most rewarding experience for me is to see the members of our PB community walk up to the girls when they have a booth at Vons and say, 'I remember when you were little Brownies.' ” … then (Scouts) explain about fundraising for their next adventure, and how buying cookies supports Girl Scout programs here in San Diego. They know that they are building a bridge between the community and Girl Scouting.” Doyle talked about one important benefit derived by girls selling cookies. “Goal setting is one of the major skills girls learn through the cookie program,” Doyle said, noting girls as young as age 6 participate. Doyle described the most recent Girl Scouts Cookie drive as a “nice convergence,” given that “this is the 100th year of Girl Scouts in San Diego.” There are a total of 35,000 Girl Scout members in San Diego and Imperial counties, which includes nearly 23,000 girls and more than 12,000 adults, Doyle said. Girl Scout cookie season goes from Sunday, Jan. 22 to Sunday, March 12. Organized by the California Restaurant Association's San Diego County Chapter, San Diego Restaurant Week is in its 12th year as San Diego County's largest and most successful dining event. Held twice annually, this culinary tradition features more than 180 of San Diego's best restaurants offering fixed price, three-course meals.

    Huge roller coaster overlooking Mission Bay planned for SeaWorld

    SeaWorld San Diego unveiled plans on Jan. 3 for its new attraction – the Electric Eel roller coaster – featuring multiple-launch elements, high-energy twists, and heart-pounding loops. It will expand the park’s new Ocean Explorer realm set to open later this summer as part of the park’s largest new attraction premiere in its history. Following the opening of three new attractions in 2017 – Ocean Explorer, the new Orca Encounter and the all-new summer nighttime extravaganza Electric Ocean – Electric Eel will cap a 24-month period of growth for the 53-year-old park. Electric Eel will join Manta and Journey to Atlantis as the third coaster-type ride experience at SeaWorld San Diego. It will be constructed on an approximately two-acre site on the eastern side of the park between the currently under-construction Ocean Explorer attraction and Journey to Atlantis. The ride is expected to open in summer 2018. “Electric Eel will bring a whole new level of excitement to SeaWorld,” said SeaWorld San Diego’s park president Marilyn Hannes. “This new, first-of-its-kind coaster at SeaWorld will give riders the rare opportunity to feel what it’s like to move like an eel as they twist and flip along nearly 900 feet of undulating track.” Electric Eel will feature astounding loops, twists and airtime. Multiple-launch experiences will propel riders forward and backward as they speed through the ride’s station house accelerating to more than 60 miles per hour in seconds. Riders then rocket skyward nearly 150 feet where they will brave an inverted “heartline” roll and a twisting loop for an exciting feeling of airtime as riders crest the top before breathlessly returning to the station. This adrenaline-pumping coaster will offer riders the only upside-down view of Mission Bay. Complementing the Electric Eel roller coaster is the Ocean Explorer experience, which will include a hypnotic live eel habitat featuring one of the world’s most extensive collections of moray eels. Through large viewing windows, visitors may view the eels as they swim and dart through the caves and crevasses of their tank. With Electric Eel, SeaWorld’s Deep Blue creative design team will fuse the experience of a contemporary coaster with an interactive and educational eel exhibit. Guests may discover information about these animals, including their unique predation skills and diets, growth rates and sensory abilities. “The future is bright at SeaWorld and we remain committed to long-term investment in the park,” said Hannes.
