In this debate, I will argue in favor of keeping marine mammals under human care. To clarify, I will support the AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) in their captivity methods and purposes. This does not include SeaWorld, as they are not part of the AZA and I do not have a direct association with them, thus I cannot speak for them.

My opponent will argue against the AZA, and will argue in favor of marine mammal release. BOP is shared.

I accept this debate Pro and look forward to it. I would first like to clarify that SeaWorld is in fact apart of the AZA and is fully accredited according to the AZA website.

I thank my opponent for taking this debate. I am incredibly sorry to my opponent and to the voters, but Real Life has occured and I must travel on short notice. I am unable to continue this debate at this time.

My most sincere apologies to my opponent, but this is unavoidable. I am a busy man, this can be verified by reviewing a number of my debates that have ended in a similar fashion.

It is unfortunate this debate has to end. I wish my opponent the best of luck and I hope we can revisit this topic in the future.

I would be more than happy to revisit this topic in a future debate. My trip will end in roughly three weeks. Perhaps then?

If sea world were included in this, I may have accepted.
