Dolphinaria-Free Europe (DFE) members One Voice (France), have advised the coalition that the owners of Marineland, Antibes are planning to transfer the four orcas currently held at the facility to China.
Inouk, Wikie, Moana and Keijo were all born at Marineland and the plans may also involve the transfer of Inouk’s sister, Shouka (sent to Six Flags Worlds of Adventure in May 2002 then to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom in April 2004 before being moved to her current location, SeaWorld San Diego in August 2012. DFE fully supports the campaign and have written to President Macron asking him to intervene to stop the move. We are appealing to the new owners of Parques Reunidos, who have the means to invest in the establishment of an orca sanctuary, to consider this as an alternative to moving the orcas to China.
Please support the campaign by signing the petition today and help stop this transfer, planned for January 2020.
