I had several requests for copies of my presentation on the various US court cases related to captive orcas, that I recently gave at the European Cetacean Society conference in Malta. So for everyone who wanted it, here is a copy of the presentation.
If you refer to this presentation, please use the citation: Parsons,
E.C.M. 2015. Killer whale killers –
a review of US court cases on captive orcas. Presented at 29thAnnual Conference of the European
Cetacean Society, 23-25 March 2015, Malta.

An article on the science behind the movie Blackfish can be found on the leading marine science blog Southern Fried Science.
