SeaWorld attendances drop again

SeaWorld's latest financial results showed that around 30,000 fewer people visited its marine parks during the final quarter of 2016. Revenues were also down year-on-year as the company made a loss of nearly $12 million US dollars.

A number of staff lost their jobs last year as part of an on-going cost-cutting exercise as the company attempts to turn around its fortunes following years of criticism over its continued display of orcas in captivity.
