Elementary School Cancels Regular Trip to SeaWorld

Elementary School Cancels Regular Trip to SeaWorld

Point Dume Marine Science Elementary School in Malibu, California, has a tradition of sending their fifth-grade class on an annual overnight spring trip to SeaWorld. Or, I should say, had. After 10-year-old Point Dume student, Kirra Kotier, watched the documentary, “Blackfish,” the typically “very shy” young girl was determined to never return to SeaWorld. According to Kirra’s father, Kirby, the animal-loving student started a word-of-mouth campaign to get the annual trip’s destination changed to someplace other than SeaWorld. More kids were on board, and parents, too. Concerned parents were the ones to first bring the issue to the school’s principal, Rebecca Johnson, which prompted her to cancel the trip to SeaWorld and search an alternate destination.
