ORLANDO (CNN) - SeaWorld is laying off 350 workers as part of a "reconstructing" effort.

The company said Wednesday that corporate office positions will be primarily affected.

Its parks in Orlando and San Diego are also being affected due to lower attendance numbers.

SeaWorld has been on a mission to rebuild its brand following criticisms about how it treats killer whales. the issue was highlighted in the 2013 documentary "Blackfish."
