“Blackfish” Will Air on CNN Tomorrow at 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern. Watch and Tweet With Us!

|

Tomorrow evening, Thursday, October 24, at 6pm Pacific time and 9pm Eastern time, CNN will be airing Blackfish. The award-winning film is about the ethics of keeping killer whales in captivity, and about SeaWorld in particular.

Then, at 8pm Pacific/11pm Eastern, CNN will air a live after-show called Inside Blackfish: Killers in Captivity. The discussion will be moderated by Anderson Cooper and will include Blackfish director Gabriela Cowperthwaite, Dr. Naomi Rose of the Animal Welfare Institute, zoo biologist Jack Hanna, and others.

While I watch the film and after-show, I’ll be livetweeting my thoughts together with a small group of marine and animal scientists and live-blogging for CNN.

To participate in our discussion, watch the film during the 6pm Pacific/9pm Eastern airing, follow along, and tweet your reactions using the hashtag #Blackfish on twitter. Have questions about keeping killer whales in captivity, or about killer whales in general? Tweet them at us with the hashtag, and our team of experts will try to answer.
