Marineland Ltd Statement

Today’s protestors repeated several lies about Mediterraneo Marine Park based on outdated information about practices that have not been used in Europe since the 1980s.

The park follows strict standards and regulations in line with the most recent EU directives. This is a highly regulated sector and we take our responsibilities extremely seriously.
The dolphin presentations at Mediterraneo Marine Park are educational and have a veterinarian function that helps us protect the well-being of the dolphins on a daily basis.
It is also not true that the accidental dolphin deaths last year were in any way mysterious or hidden. We immediately reported the deaths to the authorities and held transparent investigations that identified what went wrong: lead poisoning caused by strictly forbidden equipment that was used by an external diver who was cleaning one of the pools. We have taken steps to ensure this tragedy does not repeat itself.
