I gotta give another thumbs up for Lowry Park - unlike SeaWorld and some of the other attractions, they don't try to get around the rules (as best I know) when it comes to capturing wild animals or how their animals are treated. They don't even keep captive dolphins! It's also one of the few manatee rehab centers around.
I'd much rather give my money to support an organization that isn't questionable in their treatment of animals just to make a quick buck.
Sorry if that came across as harsh. The more I'm learning, the more I realize how important it is to think about what my dollars are supporting. SeaWorld will not be seeing any of our money.
