Default Ocean Park closing on 31st August

Just had an email to members re the above...



Dear Members

Due to overwhelming financial pressures, Ocean Park will be closing its doors on 31 August. We have not been able to complete the conversion plan from very high cost saltwater displays to freshwater or terrestrial exhibits which was hoped to put the Park on a viable path forward.

As part of this plan, we had already been seeking a new home for the stingrays and sharks. We are very happy that the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, UK will be re-locating these animals to their first class facility.

Please be assured that all other fish and animals that remain at the Park will be cared for diligently while our position is assessed and any further arrangements are made.

We thank you sincerely for your past support.

Kind Regards,

Ocean Park

Wow! That's news, to be sure.

Wonder what's in store for the fishies now?

Ugh...and no mention of the big chunk of change that I plunked down in April for the year. I am really disappointed as is the little man.

I was wondering about you and Mr. Happy... he so loves that place.

Bring him to my place and I'll take him on a tour of the fishies in the sea
