The article by Catherine Spearnak ("Sea World: From Ripple to Big Splash," March 21) on Sea World's 25th anniversary left one significant point out. As celebrations go, Sea World's seems to have a particular bite to it--every night about 10 p.m. Since that aquatic park exchanged its educational purpose for entertainment, anyone within a mile or two is forced to endure a nightly barrage of bombs in the form of fireworks. While they conform to all the city regulations regarding these thunderous displays, the managers ignore the repercussions that waft over the nearby neighborhoods.

In the movie "Free Willy," a young boy attempts to free an orca whale from a small Pacific Northwest aquatics park. But efforts to move the movie's star, the orca whale Keiko, from his Mexico City aquarium have put the film's producers, Richard Donner and Lauren Shuler-Donner, at odds with some environmentalists. Currently, the 5,000-pound orca lives in the Reina Avenpura aquatic park. It has been reported that the orca is suffering from a potentially contagious virus called viral pappilomatus.

The plan to create a tourist harbor and aquarium over the bones of an old landfill moved one step closer to reality this week when the City Council approved the plan in concept. The project, intended to link downtown with the shoreline and attract more visitors, had been revised to leave the Queen Mary where it is. The proposal still calls for excavating much of Shoreline Aquatic Park and its lagoon, but it would be replaced with smaller greenbelts.

Will the movie "Free Willy," the feel-good story of a lonely boy and his 3 1/2-ton friend, spark a public outcry to force aquatic theme parks to free their whales and dolphins and other captive creatures? Or will it do the opposite and just increase attendance at theme parks by stirring up interest in the out-sized sea mammals? Such are the poles of the environmental debate spurred by the nationwide opening today of the Warner Bros.
