SeaWorld develops new exercise technology for Killer Whales

SeaWorld recently partnered with KSB Pumps to test build a Killer Whale treadmill. The device allows the whales to swim at up to 30 miles per hour which simulates the sensations of endless swimming. The development of this new technology will allow SeaWorld to provide a new type of exercise for their whales as well as new enrichment. This test device will eventually be implemented at all three SeaWorld parks if it is successful.
