Thank you all for making Family Appreciation Day, May 18, a huge success! We’re checking the records, but it may have been Marineland’s busiest opening day ever! And what a beautiful day it was! We were delighted with the marine show. Our marine mammal team members wanted to try some new things and they pulled it off brilliantly. It was magical listening to the cheers and watching the smiles of children in the stands when they witnessed what our amazing marine mammals can do.
No one really knows who coined the phrase “God could not be everywhere so therefore he made mothers”. But we are convinced the author must have come to Marineland.
You could probably do this with the family. But Marineland in Niagara Falls is a lot closer. It’s a great place to show your kids amazing animals that they will likely never have the opportunity to see in the wild. And we believe that the kids interact with them here they will someday become champions of our animals’ wild cousins as humans continue to encroach on their habitats.
Great news for everyone who has been following the plight of those baby sea lions on the west coast. It sounds like they’re going to be okay. Humans and animals can work very well together.
What would you do if someone told blatant lies about you trying to destroy your business and throw hundreds of your loyal employees out of work? We suspect you would do what we are doing. We are proud to announce that we are taking the Toronto Star to court in a seven million dollar libel suit. Before taking this step we carefully weighed two old adages. One was the warning about taking on people who buy ink by the barrel, but there comes a point when enough is enough. The other- a journalism school maxim – “if your Mother says she loves you, check it out.”
Here at Marineland we are all feeling terrible about what is happening with baby sea lions off the California coast. It’s been a tough winter and spring for marine mammals in the wild. Let’s hope scientists can determine what is wrong and help these animals out.
