SeaWorld's announcement Monday that it would end its orca shows was greeted with muted praise from some lawmakers and activists who have been clamoring for the park to change its treatment of killer whales.

The announcement came during a meeting with investors, when SeaWorld CEO Joel Manby said that its San Diego show — "One Ocean" — will end next year and be replaced in 2017 with an "all new Orca experience" that will emphasize the "natural behavior of whales."
