Baylor University’s alumni network has cited the institution’s Christian moral principles—and the cruel treatment of orcas at SeaWorld’s parks exposed in the documentary Blackfish—in announcing that it is canceling its annual trip to SeaWorld in San Antonio and instead will visit Six Flags Fiesta Texas for its traditional Diadeloso.
“We firmly believe all that we talk and preach here, in the Office of Sustainability about caring for creation,” Baylor University Assistant Director of Sustainability and Special Projects Smith Getterman said. “That means the beasts of the land, the birds of the air and the fish in the sea or in this case mammals.”
