SeaWorld’s Admissions Revenues DOWN in 2015 Q1

SeaWorld’s 2015 Q1 earnings have just been released. They claim attendance numbers are up, yet admissions revenues are down.

On May 7, 2015, SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. According to these results, attendance was at 3.2 million (for the first quarter in 2015), versus 3.0 million in 2014.

But don’t let the numbers fool you.

Listed in their Statement of Operations, net admissions revenues decreased during this period of 2015, versus 2014.

SeaWorld Q1 Attendance is DOWN

In today’s highly-competitive corporate world, every dollar counts.

By not buying a ticket to a dolphin show, you as a consumer are sending SeaWorld and other aquariums a clear message: Get OUT of the captivity business and commit to the restoration and preservation of wild habitats, thus helping to ensure wild dolphin populations thrive in a wild world.

Doesn’t that sound more like a real “sea world?”

About Cara Sands

It might be true that we don't recall many moments from our early years. However, Cara's first memory of a dolphin had her begging her parents to ask the trainer to let the dolphin go! The problem with captivity was evident to her, even as a 4 year-old child.

A writer by trade, Cara has researched, investigated and documented dolphins suffering in captivity. From documenting dolphins incarcerated in buildings, cut-off from fresh air, sunlight and normal socialization to researching cases of animals imprisoned in solitary confinement, Cara is a dedicated dolphin welfare advocate.

It is her belief that education equals empowerment. The more information shared, the better our choices and knowledge of how to act as a positive and respectful voice for dolphins across the world.

Cara is based out of Canada and makes time whenever possible to observe dolphins in their natural environments. She is writing her first fiction novel but knowing her, the marine world will play a prominent role in her book!

"The use of animals for entertainment is nothing more than an abuse of dominance. Some of the most sentient species on the planet have been exploited to incomprehensible levels, all due to their inherent benevolence. Ironic, considering that we turn to the abused themselves for displays of humanity."
