By Capt. Paul Watson's count there are 56 orcas being held in concrete prisons. And 163 who have died over the years. After 50 years at sea saving marine mammals, Watson's written a new book that essentially registers all the animals who are currently enslaved by amusement parks like Sea World. He talks about what's being done and how you can help, simply by not going to SeaWorld. In conversation with Emil Guillermo.

Watson's book. co-authored by Tiffany Humphrey is "Orcapedia," published by Groundswell Books.
