New Air Vests Enhance Safety for Killer Whale Trainers

SeaWorld has recently debuted brand new air vests that are specifically designed to enhance the safety of their Shamu trainers as they interact with and train the whales. These vests will work in combination with a number of other protocols that have been in effect in Shamu Stadium over the past four years. All of these are in place to benefit not only the trainers, but also the whales. In this video, Curator of Animal Training Kelly Flaherty Clark and Animal Trainer Justin give us a closer look at this new safety vest and its ingenious design.
