Not only are visitors shunning SeaWorld, the marine abusement park’s business partners are also bailing on the notorious company. The blockbuster documentary Blackfish drew back the curtain, revealing that orcas are confined to cramped tanks that are (to them) comparable in size to bathtubs, have been separated from their families, and often die far short of their natural life expectancy.

Wild orcas swim vast distances every day in tightly knit social groups. But in SeaWorld’s tanks, many orcas resort to gnawing on metal pool grates—which leads to broken teeth and chronic pain—as a result of stress and despair caused by their confinement.

More and more organizations no longer want to be associated with the failing park, including the following:
