SeaWorld to sue over captive orca breeding ban

SeaWorld has begun legal proceedings against the California Coastal Commission over its decision to prevent the marine park from breeding any more orcas at SeaWorld’s San Diego marine park.

The ban was included as part of the ruling to allow SeaWorld to go ahead with its $100m Blue World project, which would have seen an expansion of the tanks holding orcas at the park. Under the ruling no orcas can be sold, traded or transferred. SeaWorld contends that the Commission has no authority to impose such restrictions, claiming that the “the orcas are not, in any way, part of the coastal or marine environment”.

The Commission has said that it stands by its original decision.
