The male calf born on 8 June to Amtan at Planete Sauvage, France has died. The park has reported the cause of death to be a heart defect/malfunction.

This is the second calf to have died at the park since 2016 when Aicko, another male calf died. Planete Sauvage has never given any definite reason for the cause of death and the dolphin’s body was quickly sent to an animal disposal unit.

We will report more detailed information on the recent death if and when this is released by the park itself.
