Dear colleagues:

For those interested in the issues surrounding the public display of killer whales, a new book by journalist David Kirby, which is available in bookstores on July 17, discusses the topic thoroughly. "Death at SeaWorld" is not just about the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau in February 2010, but also about the nearly half century history of the practice of keeping this species in captivity. Several members of the MARMAM community, past and present, make an appearance in the book.  In the interest of full disclosure, I am prominently featured in the narrative, along with Jeff Ventre, a former SeaWorld killer whale trainer and current M.D., and three of his former SeaWorld colleagues.

The book is also available on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Death-SeaWorld-Killer-Whales-Captivity/dp/1250002028.  Please also visit www.deathatseaworld.com<http://www.deathatseaworld.com> for more information.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
