Thank you very much for writing and telling us about your enlightening experience with Sea Shepherd.
Personally, like you, we don't believe there are any redeeming qualities to SeaWorld, or other operations like it, though they claim that its educational, but to us the main thing they educate people about is that it's ok to capture wild animals and force them to entertain humans in unnatural ways. If they really wanted to educate people about these wild animals, they could do it all with videos.
From the results we've seen over the years, the best demonstrations are the ones that are coupled to a press conference or that have media coverage, because the exposure goes way beyond the relatively few people you and your group can speak with. Always be polite and peaceful and try to engage as many people as you can in conversation. A handout is also good to give the people you talk to.
We hope this helps.
We also have a weekly newsletter. Would you like to be on the list.
In the Love of the Lord,
Frank and Mary
